TOMASA DE LA GARZA
EDINBURG - Tomasa De La Garza Saenz, 71, returned to her heavenly home with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ Monday, August 10, 2020, at Doctors Hospital at Renaissance in Edinburg, Texas.
Our beautiful loving mother Tomasa (Tommy) was born in Venecia, Tamaulipas, MX-MEX in the municipality of Gusatavo Diaz Ordaz and lived in Edinburg, Texas since she was a little girl. Our mother was a very simple woman that was never impressed by the material things of this world. Her love was set on her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and her family. Her four sons were her life and prayer for them was constant and never ceased. She was our pillar of strength, she was our counselor and comforter during times of doubt and fear. She was a mother to all, a friend to strangers and prayer was the gift she gave. She will be dearly missed.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Eliseo and Guadalupe De La Garza; her siblings, Evelia Rodriguez, Guadalupe Lopez, Elisa Emma Montes, Eliseo De La Garza Jr; two nephews, Reyes Rodriguez Jr. and Adrian Garza.
