Mary O. Hernandez, 92, of Victoria, Texas, was called Home on Monday, November 18, 2019. She was born on October 21, 1927 to the late Aniceto Olivares and Frances Zepeda Poulos in Victoria, TX. She is survived by daughters: Virginia Ramirez (Alfred) of Victoria, TX, Gloria Nava (Bill) of Round Rock, TX, and Christella Alvarez (Nick) of Victoria, TX, her son, Daniel Hernandez of Victoria, TX, sisters: Patsy Pena (Matt) and Genoveva Flores (Aurelio), brothers: Johnny Olivares (Mary) and Domingo Olivares (Sally), nine grandchildren, and 25 great-grandchildren. Mary was a faithful Catholic whose happiest moments were spent at home with family, proudly attending various events her grandchildren or great-grandchildren participated in, and sewing special keepsakes for loved ones. She enjoyed the feel of a rolling pin in her hands while making tortillas and made every meal, especially tamales, with love. Her daily dose of television included “Days of our Lives” and “Wheel of Fortune". She dedicated 13 years of her life to working for Walmart and enjoyed playing Bingo with family and friends. Regardless, her family won the biggest jackpot because she will always be a part of their lives. She is preceded in death by husband, Paul C. Hernandez, whom she was happily married to for 45 years, and siblings whom she loved very much. Visitation will begin at Angel Lucy’s Funeral Home Thursday, November 21, 2019 at 9AM, followed by a Rosary at 10AM. Visitation will resume at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church at 12:15PM, with a Funeral Mass to be celebrated at 1PM with Bishop Emeritus David E. Fellhauer and Bishop Brendan Cahill, concluded with the Rite of Christian Burial at Resurrection Cemetery. Pallbearers: Bill Nava, Jim Ballard, William Nava, Evan Hadaway, Anthony Ramirez, and Eliot McKay. Under the direction of Angel Lucy’s Funeral Home in Victoria, TX, 361-575-3212.
