Obituary for Maria Amezcua

January 6, 1946 - November 24, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 71


Maria Amezcua, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister, passed away Friday, November 24, 2017. She was a virtuous woman. A woman of character far more precious than rubies. Maria was full of wisdom & knowledge. She was a true example of a Proverbs 31 woman.

Maria was born on January 6, 1946 to Jose Angel Mata and Lilly Davis, in San Antonio Texas.

While attending business school in Long Beach California, she met the love of her life, a U.S. Navy serviceman, Gary Amezcua. After a brief courtship they were married. We are proud to say they were married for over 50 years.

The U.S. Navy allowed them to travel to various places; first Hawaii, the Philippines, Alaska and finally back to Hawaii, where they would live for over 24 years.

Maria's desire to serve, helped open up a door for her to care for foster children. Maria had the unique ability to love with no conditions. For you see the word biological had no meaning to her.

She was always very active in her church. She understood and practiced forgiveness, testament she attributed to her late mother. She was a true soldier of God. One who led many people to receive Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

Maria lived life to the fullest. She was the rock of our family. Her husband children and grandchildren meant the world to her. Maria along with her husband, Gary paved a foundation for their family. Full of God, love and traditions. The seeds she sowed will remain grounded from generation to generations.

She is survived by her loving husband, Gary Amezcua Sr.; daughter, Christine Kamahele and son-in-law, Tim Jackson; daughter, Stephanie Herrera and son-in-law, Henry Herrera; son, Gary Amezcua Jr. and daughter-in-law, Debbie Amezcua; son, Mario Amezcua and daughter-in-law, Kristen Amezcua; son, Michael Walker and daughter-in-law, Laurie Walker; daughter, Jamie Cadena and son-in-law, Chris Cadena; daughter, Nani and son-in-law, Mike Rivera; 18 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild; brothers, Fred Mata, George Mata; and sisters, Dolores Ortiz and Lillie Torres.
