Obituary

Nell Flores, age 92, completed her life's journey on Tuesday, October 9, 2018, in her home surrounded by family in San Antonio, Texas. She was born on August 23, 1926 in Malakoff, Texas, to parents Atilano and Esther Criado Martinez.

Nell grew up in San Antonio and graduated as Valedictorian from Tech High School and at age 50 went on to complete her Associate's Degree. She was Executive Secretary at Highlands High School, Brackenridge High School, and ended her career as Secretary to the Superintendent of San Antonio Independent School District. She actively participated at her parish church, Holy Rosary, where she raised her family. Nell and her husband Henry retired at Medina Lake, Texas. As they progressed in age they returned to San Antonio to be closer to family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her two sisters, Santos Orosco and Aristea Guardia; and her brother, Arturo Martinez; also, her husband of 61 years, Henry Flores; her son Henry Flores, Jr.; and her son-in-law, Ernest J. Menchaca. Her survivors include her daughters, Louise Menchaca, Leticia Flores, and Theresa Biedermann and husband Thomas; her son, Edward Flores; her grandsons, Ernest Menchaca, Henry James Flores, Edward and Zachary Biedermann, Garrett and Justin Flores; and her great-granddaughter, Payton Anne.

The family would like to express heartfelt thanks to Melinda Flores, our mother's caregiver, whose love and compassion will always be appreciated. We also would like to acknowledge Vicki, Ida, Anna, Kaitlyn, and Clay from Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care, for their gentle, loving commitment in caring for our mother.
