Mary Jane Atzenhoffer

December 27, 1927March 12, 2019

Our beloved mother and grandmother, Mary Jane Atzenhoffer, left this earth and her loved ones on March 12, 2019, at the age of 91, to be with her Lord Jesus in Heaven.

Mary was born in San Marcos, Texas, on December 27, 1927. She is preceded in death by her husband, Arthur Atzenhoffer, son Arthur Jr., loving sisters Maggie Williams, Mabel Claire Slack, several other siblings, step daughter Ray Ann Lewis and grandson Kenny Fiedler. Mary is survived by her children Cynthia Gabbart, Mary Ann and Jacqueline Atzenhoffer, Sandra and husband Mike Farquhar, grandson, Jason Atzenhoffer, and several great grandchildren. She also leaves behind special friends, Aurora Hernandez and Karen Hanson.

Mary worked for Frito Lay for a time in her 20s but spent most of her life as a homemaker. She enjoyed sewing and preparing Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners.

Mary always had a strong faith in God and enjoyed reading the bible. In her later years, Mary decided she wanted to become a Catholic. Being the determined person she was, Mary studied Catholicism, was confirmed and baptized at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church on April 7, 2007, at the age of 79. She became the oldest parishioner to be baptized at this church.

Later in life Mary also came to appreciate Opera and enjoyed listening to Pavarotti. Mary loved the Cowboys, Spurs, and George Strait who sings her favorite, and most suitable, song, ‘A Love Without End Amen.'

The family thanks Aurora Hernandez for her years of care, love, and friendship, along with the staff and nurses at St. Francis Nursing Home.

A Mass service will be held at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, 1314 Fair Avenue, San Antonio, Texas, on Thursday, March 21, 2019, at 11:00am. A lunch reception will follow immediately after Mass.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Arc of San Antonio, 13430 West Avenue, San Antonio TX 78216, www.arc-sa.org;
