Graciela (Uribe) Villarreal

June 29, 1952 — April 22, 2022

Graciela (Uribe) Villarreal, 69, peacefully passed from this life April 22, 2022 at her home in San Benito, Texas.  She was born June 29, 1952 to the late Marcelino Uribe and Rebeca Ayala Uribe in Mercedes, Texas.

While living in California, Graciela worked as a teacher’s aide in a public school. After returning to San Benito, she took on her most important role, that of a full-time homemaker and mom. Her homemade flour tortillas were her children’s and grandchildren’s favorite.

When not tending to her family, Graciela enjoyed drawing, reading, watching TV. She especially liked watching Family Feud and cowboy movies.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Marcelino and Rebeca A. Uribe; and a brother, Mario Uribe.

Left to treasure Graciela’s memory is her loving husband, Juan Villarreal; her children, Juanita Norma Villarreal, Fabian Villarreal (Leticia Zamora), and Elissa Villarreal (Robert Maldonado); her grandchildren, Fabian Villarreal, Daniel Villarreal, Frank Moreno, Olivia Villarreal, and Celeste Macias.  She is also survived by her siblings, Francisco Uribe, Armando Uribe, Alfredo Uribe, Rafaela Noriega, Ruben Uribe, and Roy Uribe.

The Villarreal family will receive relatives and friends on Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Buck Ashcraft San Benito Funeral Home. Graciela will be laid to rest Sunday, April 24, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. at Mont Meta Memorial Park. (There will not be a funeral procession. Those wishing to attend the committal and interment should meet at the cemetery.)

Honored to serve as pallbearers are Steven Uribe, Robert Maldonado, Victor Villarreal, Johnny Maldonado, Dillon Zamora, Moises Faz, and Dorian Zamora.
