September 25, 1922 - October 11, 2016
San Antonio, Texas | Age 94
There was a happy family reunion on October 11, 2016 when Ofelia (Mom) was called home by her Lord. There to greet her was her husband of 43 years, Peter J Bertone; her parents Adolfo Medellin and Guadalupe Ortiz Medellin; her sisters: Eva Medellin, Hortence M. Palomo, Lillie M. Pena; and hopefully all the pets she had throughout her lifetime.
Ofelia was born on September 25, 1922 in San Antonio, where she lived all her life. She began her Christian life at the Mexican Christian Church where she was taught religious studies from a lovely lady, Miss Hood. Her formal education began at David Barkley Elementary School and went on till she completed her education at Sidney Lanier High School, where she graduated with the class of '41. She returned in the 50's to work in the attendance office which she thoroughly enjoyed.
After marrying in 1956, she soon became a full time stay at home mom & caregiver to her children & parents. Through the deaths of her parents, sisters, & Husband, she never once lost any of her love or faith in her Lord, who she now stands with in Heaven. She is going to be greatly missed…..
Ofelia is survived by daughter, Cathy Bertone, Sandy Pacheco; son, Peter J. Bertone II, Kay Bertone; and grandchildren, Nicholas (Nico), Mia, Halie & Joshua (Josh).
A visitation will be held on Sunday, October 16, 2016 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Porter Loring on McCullough.
