Herlinda Ruiz, age 62, went into the presence of her Savior in her home surrounded by her family on Saturday morning after a long fervent battle with illness. Funeral service will be 10:00 a.m. Friday, Feb. 8, 2019 at First Spanish Assembly of God with Reverend Frank Alvarado and Reverend Francisco Gutierrez, Jr. officiating. Interment will follow in Waco Memorial Park. Visitation will be from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, 2019 at Connally/Compton Funeral Directors.

Herlinda was born in Morelia, Michoacan Mexico to Guadalupe and Salvador Aguilar. She was a faithful servant of the Lord since accepting Christ as her savior more than 26 years ago. During that time she was a godly woman of faith and a joy to everyone who knew her. Her smile was contagious and always encouraging. Married to her loving devoted husband Criserio Ruiz for 35 wonderful years. Herlinda raised 5 children who adored her. She was also blessed with 11 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. She became a resourceful entrepreneur, opening the Flamingo Restaurant on 19th Street and expanding to Park Lake Dr. in Waco for 15 years. Herlinda was an active member of Primera Assemblea de Dios for 18 years and then Templo Nueva Vida until her passing, she always loved serving the Lord and others. Her heart’s desire was to love everyone and never wavered in her walk with God. The testimony and legacy she leaves behind is God honoring and she will be greatly missed. There is no doubt that this world lost a great virtuous woman as is described in Proverbs 31. She is now rejoicing before the throne of grace in the arms of Jesus Christ our Savior. Herlinda is preceded in death by her father Salvador Aguilar; step-father, Taurino Avila
