María Guadalupe Guerra, 89, peacefully passed from this life September 19, 2022. She was born June 15, 1933 to the late Higinio Guerra and Angelita Bueno Guerra in El Ranchito, Texas.

Left to treasure her memory are her children, Joe (Pam) Martinez, George (Rosa) Martinez, Blaz (Esther) Martinez, Norma Dickerson, and Elma (Stan) Perdue. Maria also leaves behind seventeen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren who she adored.

Special thanks to the caring nurses and staff of The Heights of Alamo for the excellent care that Maria received. Also heartfelt thanks to Allstate Hospice for their compassionate care and support.

Maria’s family will receive relatives and friends on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Buck Ashcraft San Benito Funeral Home.
