Obituary

María Teresa Ortiz, went to be with Our Lord on July 31, 2018 at the age of 95 in San Antonio, TX surrounded by her family. María Teresa was born to Ramón Juan and Teresa Ortega in Naranjito, Puerto Rico on February 7, 1923. In 1944, she married her loving husband, Claudio Ortiz, and celebrated 64 beautiful years of marriage. Together, they lived across the US as a military family with their six children. At last, she moved to San Antonio in 1984, after the retirement of her husband from the postal service in Puerto Rico. Faith guided her life by being a very loving, caring and compassionate woman. She was a very devout Catholic and an active parishioner of St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, and she instilled great religious values in her family by setting a good example. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother, who loved to sew and create beautiful lace and embroidered linen.
