Her family knew her as a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, friend; who never met a stranger. Our community lost a special treasure known as "MOM" to everyone she encountered.

Mom continued to travel after the passing of our dad with her daughter, Mary and son in law Jesse every fall. When she was not working or traveling, she loved watching the Huskies, Longhorns, Cowboys and Texas Rangers. She lived a long fruitful life and we thank God for letting us have her so long.

She is preceded in death by her parents and husband Louis B. Esquibel, brother's Jesse, Felipe, Vincente, Joe, and Manuel Garcia. sister, Linda Castillo, son Phillip Esquibel, grandsons Jesse Torres III, Andrew Esquibel and great granddaughter Skye Escobedo.
