Eloina M. Charles

d. March 25, 2024

Harlingen, Texas

Once again, our hearts are broken. Our Mamita, Eloina M. Charles passed away on Monday, March 25th, 2024. At the age of 96, she passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home. Our Mamita was a hardworking and determined woman.

In October of 1964, she established Las Vegas Cafe. Today, the restaurant is still a reflection of her love for cooking. Besides being a wonderful cook, our Mamita also had a green thumb. Whatever she planted grew. She also bred parrots, parakeets, canaries, and cocktails. She was a bundle of energy and lived life to the fullest.

Although we already miss our beautiful Mamita, we are so thankful to be part of her legacy.

Our Mamita is preceded in death by our Papito, Julio Charles.

She is survived by her children, Bettye C Sosa (Osvaldo), Lori Davila (Duke), Julie Charles, and Julio A. Charles (Catherine). Her grandchildren are Lizette Williams (Travis), Derek Davila, Sam Davila, Marisa Davila, Anthony Posada, Lauren Posada, Klarisa Posada, and Max Charles.

The Charles family will receive friends and relatives on Wednesday, March 27, 2024 from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. A recitation of the Holy Rosary will begin at 7 o’clock Wednesday evening.  A funeral liturgy will take place on Thursday, March 28, 2024 at 1:00 p.m. in the funeral home chapel. Following the service, our Mamita will be laid to rest at Restlawn Memorial Park in La Feria.

We would like to thank Mount Sinai Hospice for the great care they provided our Mamita and also all her wonderful caregivers. Thank you also to Buck Ashcraft San Benito Funeral Home for their valued services.
