It was a grand celebration! The honoree rode in a horse-drawn carriage from her house in San Antonio to St. Leonard’s Church for a Mass in her honor. It was in honor of her 90th birthday, which she had observed four days earlier. Later, a reception and dinner were held at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church parish hall in Elmendorf. In the evening, she was honored with a Daughters of the Republic of Texas presentation as a new member. She had been nominated and accepted as a member of the organization in October 2010. (In the 1860s, Virginia’s great-grandmother, Margarita Diaz, had been awarded a first class Headright certificate by the Republic of Texas for 1 league, 4428 acres, and 1 labor, 177 acres of land.) . . .
