Obituary

Mrs. Alma De La Cruz Gutierrez, age 85, was blessed with a peaceful passing at her home, as she always wished, surrounded by her family and friends. Alma was one of seven children raised in a loving family in McAllen, TX.

She was a proud member of The Legion of Mary since 1946. Upon receipt of her full scholarship to UIW, Alma became the first female of her family to graduate, earning a BSRN in 1956.

She met and married the love of her life, Ramiro in 1958. Together they traveled to many parts of the world and began a family business. Her love and passion for nursing led her to become the beloved "Tia Alma" whom everyone called upon. Her generosity was legendary.

Alma will be loved and missed by many.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Soledad Rivera and Ricardo de la Cruz; siblings, Edemiro, Dora, Olga, Ricardo and Eva and her husband, Ramiro. Alma is survived by daughter, Doria and husband, Allan Cross; grandchildren, Elizabeth (Colin), Josh (Roxie) and Jacob; great-grandchildren, Liam, Callie and Seamus; brother, Adan; best friend, Maria Eugenia Gallo and numerous relatives, nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be held on Thursday, February 14, 2019 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 p.m. at Porter Loring on McCullough.
