Lilia M Guerra

 

Lilia Moreno Guerra

 

On April 6, 2018, Lilia Moreno Guerra joined her Lord and Savior at the age of 94.  She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She was a woman of great faith in her Creator and a proud member of Santa Rosa de Lima Catholic Church.  When she could not physically attend mass, she worshipped quietly in her living room.  Much to the pleasure of those around her, she would often start singing Amazing Grace or Un Dia A la Vez to make sure that her Lord knew that her soul was full.  In her own strong but quiet way, she was intensely and constantly connected to her faith in God.  Lilia faced multiple tragedies during the course of her life, but due to her devout faith, she never had any doubt that her life was completely in God’s hands.  She had no fear of life on earth and had complete faith in the life she would live in Heaven when her time here was done.

 

Lilia was born in Los Saenz, Texas, on September 7, 1923.  She was the daughter of Pedro Moreno and Hortencia Treviño Moreno.  She had one brother, Amadeo.  She completed her 11th year of high school as the highest-ranking student in her class at Roma High School but was unable to transfer to Rio Grande City High School for her final year and graduation.  In spite of this, her thirst for knowledge was constant.  It was not uncommon to find her reading at the kitchen table from encyclopedias, reader’s digest, or any of the substantial book collection in her back room.  Reading the newspaper and completing the word puzzles was a daily must.  She always found a way to absorb more knowledge even if it meant sitting quietly and listening to the constant chatter that was always around her.  Somehow she knew that the wisdom she would acquire in her 94 years of life would be needed and at some point shared with all of us.  She was right.  We needed it and we needed it often.  She never failed to deliver.   She always knew what to say.  She always knew what to do.  We are eternally grateful for her constant love, guidance, and wisdom. 

 

Lilia and Chito built a proud legacy of 11 children, 30 grandchildren, 44  great and 7 great-great-grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her loving husband Chito, by her parents, her brother, her son, Juan Manuel, and her grandsons, Ove Jr. and Ricardo.  She is survived by her children, Oralia Cavazos (Wally), Norma Olivarez (Ove+), Yolanda Villarreal (Alfredo), Lilia G. Garza (Javier), Francisco Guerra, III., Noemi Hinojosa (Jorge), Idolina Flores (Sixto+), Hector Guerra, Enedelia Coulter (Gary) and Hortencia Chapa (Ruben); her grandchildren, great, and great-great-grandchildren; all who patiently await the day they will be with her again in Heaven.
