Obituary

Irene M. Vera was born in Texas City, Texas on November 25, 1924. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Arthur S. Vera; her beloved parents, Ernesto and Eloisa Martinez; sisters, Chelo Coronado and Concha Rodriguez; and brother, Manuel Martinez. In 1941, she married the love of her life, Arthur, and they shared a wonderfully love-filled marriage of almost 75 years. Irene worked hard to raise a family as her husband fought in WWII, yet always found the time to write him a letter every day that he was deployed. Their love was truly unconditional, and though we mourn our loss, our family is truly happy that they are together once again.
Irene possessed an incredible spirit and strength that she worked to instill in all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We are all truly blessed to have had her in our lives. Irene is survived by her daughter, Linda V. Lira; son, Arthur Vera, Jr.; grandson, Lance L. Lira and his wife Mary;
granddaughters, Irene V. Perez and Marcie Swonson; great-granddaughters, Lauren and Leah Lira; and great-grandsons, Tanner, Cody and Blaize Swonson.

The family will receive friends Wednesday, November 29, 2017 beginning at 6:00 P.M. with a Rosary to be recited at 7:30 P.M. at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
