HIDALGO- Rebeca Avila, 66, died Thursday, March 7, 2024, at McAllen Heart Hospital.

Rebeca was carefree and lively spirited. She loved the simple joys of a good show with a cup of coffee as well as spending time with family. Though she became ill suddenly, she fought bravely and fiercely. Blessed be that she was surrounded by her loved ones and succumbed peacefully. Her resilience and courage were a true reflection of her spirit and strength. She will be dearly missed and forever remembered by all whose lives she touched.

“Like a thorn-covered rose, your love was sharp,

Yet beneath the surface, petals unfolded,

Revealing the tender heart that beat within,

Now lost to time, but immortalized in our hearts.”

-Jose Rodriguez
