Our beloved Mom Maria Jesus Herrera was born in Runge, TX on 9-1-44. She was born to Rufino and Josefina Losoya. Mom first met her loving husband Heginio Herrera in 1970 in Midland, TX and raised many children. Mom was a loving wife, mom, grandmother, and great –grandmother. Mom loved her family dearly and everyone knew that you could count on mom. Mom was a faithful servant of the Lord always giving thanks and praying no matter the situation. Mom raised many kids from her own to her grandchildren, to her nieces and nephews; no matter who they were she would take them in with open arms. Mom loved having picnics in the park and always had ham, bologene, and cheese from Mr.S. There was nothing Mom could not cook from arroz and beans, to pork chops, tamales you name it she made it. Whatever time of day if you were hungry she would make you meal. Mom was known for being straight forward no holding back type of woman. At times it would hurt with what she had to say but it was out of love and care and always made sure she said she loved you. When you laughed she laughed, when you smiled she smiled, when you cried she cried and held you said “pray I love you.” Mom always had a verse that she loved to hear “Porque de tal manera amo Dios al mundo, que ha dado a su Higo unigento, para que todo aquel que en el cree, no se pierda mas tenga la vida eternal” Juan 3:16.
