Mary Lou Espinoza, age 73, of San Antonio, Texas went to be with the Lord on June 5th, 2021. Mary Lou was preceded in death by her husband Leonard F. Espinoza Jr. of 57 years, son Gregory Espinoza, father Epifanio Esquivel, mother Ines T. Esquivel, brother Epifanio T. Esquivel, and sister Gloria Castro. Mary Lou is survived by her children Nancy Guerra (Joe), Leonard Espinoza III (Mary), Andrew Espinoza (Mari) siblings Dolores Espinoza, Arturo T. Esquivel, and Guadalupe T. Esquivel. Mary Lou worked 37 years at Finks Cigar Co. as a cigar wrapper where she made her coworker's days go by faster with her laughter, jokes, and dances. She then moved on and became part of the housekeeping team at Baptist Hospital.

When Mary Lou wasn't at home cooking delicious meals for the family or finding comfort in sewing and crocheting blankets in her backroom she was taking mini-vacations with her husband (Baby) down in Kickapoo, sitting at her favorite slot machines. She enjoyed carrying on family traditions during the holidays cooking tamales, Menudo, Caldo de Pollo, and making tortillas to go along with many other delicious meals. Mary Lou loved making memories with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who kept her young, busy, and full of life. She loved listening to her oldies, drinking her lone star, and smoking her Salem cigarettes while enjoying the view of her beautiful garden and listening to the cardinals chirping with her chihuahua Chiquita. Mary Lou was always the life of the party and had many laughing continuously with her famous dance moves and special "vocabulary". Mary Lou is now reunited with her son Gregory and her husband of 57 years in Heaven.

My sister-in-law (Mary Lou) has left a great viod in many family members, along with friends too. Mary Lou and my brother Leonard, her loving husband, always kept a love-filled home for anyone who visited them. I want to remember and cherish the love I had for both of them. I pray that our God comfort their children, and friends. With respect and love, we will miss Mary Lou.

My grandma was the heart of our family. She loved my sisters and myself as if we were her daughters. We spent many years with her that will last us a lifetime. The lifelong lessons of love and cooking and compassion she showed us we will be forever grateful.

Thank you Grandma for always believing in us and pushing us to be the Women of God we are today.
Rest easy we got this for you now.
Love your Granddaughter ~Denise
