Obituary

Una misa fúnebre para Esthela D. Carranza de Athens está programada para las 10:00 a.m., Sábado 8 de Agosto del 2020 en la Iglesia Católica de San Eduardo en Athens con el Padre Nolan Lowry oficiando. El sepelio se llevara acabo en el Athens Cemetery siguiendo la misa.

Esthela falleció pacíficamente en casa rodeada de su amorosa familia el 3 de Agosto de 2020 en Athens.

Esthela D. Carranza nació el 5 de Enero, 1953 en Rio Bravo, Tamaulipas, México, hija de Manuel Diaz y Margarita Beltrán. Mientras vivía en San Antonio, TX en 1971, encontró al amor de su vida Miguel. Se mudaron a Athens en 1977. Fue miembro de la Iglesia Católica de San Eduardo desde principios de los años 80. Ella siempre fue voluntaria en diferentes áreas de la iglesia, especialmente cuando se trataba de hacer y vender buena comida mexicana para beneficiar a la iglesia. Era una mujer cariñosa que amaba ayudar a otras personas. Desde llevar a la gente a las citas, traducir, proporcionar un lugar para quedarse e incluso ir al hospital en medio de la noche, cuando una madre hispana estaba lista para dar a luz. Ella era fanática de los Texas Rangers, incluso si estuvieran perdiendo todo el tiempo, ¡ese era su equipo! Le gustaba ver programas de juegos en la televisión y viejos shows occidentales. Le encantaba cocinar para su familia. Sus nietos se emocionaban cada vez que ella hacía sus famoso espaguetis o su favorito "huevito con jamón". "Memaw" apreciaba a sus nietos y no dejó ninguno sin apapachar. También era una esposa, madre y hermana amorosa a quienes echaremos mucho de menos por todos los que conocía y amaba.

Le precedieron en la muerte sus padres; dos hermanos, José Díaz y Jesús Martínez; hermana Aurora Martínez; suegra Felipa Cataño y suegro Aniceto Carranza.

A Esthela le sobreviven su amado esposo Miguel Carranza Sr. de Athens; cuatro hijos, Patricia Sánchez y su esposo Aurelio de Athens, Miguel Carranza Jr. y su esposa Patty de Athens, Carmen Delgado de Athens, Felipe Carranza y su esposa Samantha de Athens; cinco hermanos, Margarita Camacho y su esposo José Luis de Athens, Manuel Díaz y su esposa Carmen de Athens, Raúl Díaz y su esposa Angelita de México, Esperanza Díaz de México, Feliciana Martínez de México; siete nietos, Gracie Sanchez, Valeria Sanchez, Tres Carranza, Tony Carranza, Milo Carranza, Felipe Gabriel Carranza, Sebastian Delgado y numerosas sobrinas y sobrinos.

Sirviendo como portadores de féretro, Miguel Carranza, Felipe Carranza, Juan J. Carranza, Eladio Carranza, Adrián Carranza, Andrés Carranza, Jorge Díaz y Alejandro Díaz.

Los portadores de féretro honorarios son Manuel Díaz, Tony Carranza, Milo Carranza y Sebastian Delgado.

Las visitas se llevarán a cabo de 5 a 7:00 pm con un rosario a las 7:00 pm el Viernes 7 de Agosto del 2020 en la funeraria Hannigan Smith en Athens.
