She later found employment at St. Joseph Hospital in the Laundry Department until she decided to retire. Eva helped to raise funds to build Our Lady of Grace Church in South Houston. She loved music and dancing. One day at the resident center, she stood up to sing the song “La Bamba” and dance for the other residents.
Her parents Alejandro and Nieves Rodriguez, her sibling Jesus Rodriguez and her son, Paul Gonzales, precede Eva in death.
She is survived by her three children, Hilda Gonzales, Rose Linda Gonzales and Victor Gonzales and his wife, Sandra Gonzales; grandchildren, Elizabeth De La Garza (husband, Jacob De La Garza and daughter, Marisol), Victoria Gonzales, Gabriel Gonzales (wife, Edrea Gonzales), Jorge Gonzalez, Jeremy Palomo; great grandchild, Carissa De La Garza.
Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, the family has decided not to have a viewing, only a graveside service.
We wish to thank everyone for the heartfelt prayers and concern.

This was sent to me when my mother passed away. We thought you might like
My Dear Family
There is something I’d like to say, but first of all to let you know that I arrived Okay. I’m writing this from Heaven, where I dwell with God above, where there is no more tears or sadness, just eternal love
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through, God picked me up and hugged me and said “I welcome you”
Then God gave me a list of things to do, and foremost on that list of mine, is to watch and care for you!
One thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o’er, I’m closer to you now, that I was ever before.
It’s only a little while that we must part, so bless those memories
With you heart. I won’t be far away, for life goes on; So if you need me, call, and I will come. Though you can’t see me I will be near and if you listen to your heart you will hear all my love around you soft and clear
And oh PS
God send His love
With all our love and prayers
Randy and Jeanny

Eva you will always be in my heart. You were such a loving person, I will always remember the times you helped me and I remember you helping your parish too. You were always positive, never had complaints about anything or anyone. You always greeted us with a smile and you now greet our heavenly Father.⚘
