1918-2013

Margarita Cruz Sendejo, surrounded by her family in her residence in Floresville, Texas, peacefully passed away at 12:15 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 8, 2013, at the age of 95 years, 1 month, and 18 days. Margarita was born June 20, 1918, in Floresville, the daughter of Lina Flores and Juan Cruz Sr.

She attended school up until the fourth grade and then began working with her family. At the young age of five, Margarita learned how to ride horses with her father. Growing up, Margarita worked various small jobs with her family around the fields of South Texas and then later in Michigan. Later in her teenage years and into her adult life Margarita could be found at the local dances. She had a love for dancing like no other and even much later in her life could occasionally be found on the dance floor.

Margarita was of the Catholic faith and practiced it faithfully. She was a lifelong member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Floresville, the church where she brought up her family. Margarita lived a simple life filled with much family and love. She was a loving mother to Mary, Petra, Rosa, Rudy, and Eudelia, having raised them all and instilled in them strong morals and many life lessons. She tended to her children and her home with great love and took pride in it all.

Margarita had a special love not only for her children, but her numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a few great-great-grandchildren. She took delight in raising many of them throughout the years and took great pride in each one of them. She could always be found moving and bustling away throughout the many houses she visited; it wasn’t long after Margarita was in your house before you had a clean kitchen and hand-washed dishes. She enjoyed her many games of Loteria she played around the dining room tables of her children and grandchildren. She never played for much of a prize, but always found her own prize in the time she spent with them all. In addition to her many hobbies another of her favorites was sitting at the table and coloring; she colored many a page from the coloring books of her grandchildren and took great joy in finishing a page and showing it off.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her daughters, Elida Sendejo and Mary Sendejo Silva; her sister, Magdalena Garcia; her brothers, Juan Cruz Jr. and Jacovo Cruz; her grandson, Leandro “Rooster” Herrera Jr.,; and her son-in-law, Francisco “Frank” Rodriguez.

Margarita is survived by her children, Petra Rodriguez of Floresville, Rosa Guajardo and husband Reynaldo of San Antonio, Rudy Sendejo and wife Mary Ann of Saspamco, and Eudelia Herrera and husband Leandro Herrera Sr. of Floresville; her son-in-law, George C. Silva Sr. of Floresville; her numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and a few great-great-grandchildren; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins; and a host of many friends she made throughout her lifetime.

Visitation was held on Sunday, Aug. 11, at 5 p.m., with a recitation of the rosary at 7 p.m. in the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Floresville. Visitation continued on Monday at 9 a.m. in the church.

A funeral Mass was held on Monday at 11 a.m. in the church, officiated by the Rev. Franciszek Kurzaj.

Interment followed in the Sacred Heart Cemetery in Floresville.

Serving as pallbearers were George O. Silva Jr., Lorenzo Herrera Jr., James Ray Guajardo, Ernest Rodriguez, Gregory Peña, and Ronnie Sendejo.
