Maria Raquel Escobedo

 

Raquel Escobedo, 90, lovingly called “Tita” by her family and many friends, peacefully passed and walked through the gates of heaven into the loving arms of her Savior on Tuesday, August 16, 2022.

 Raquel was born in Olmito, Texas on June 9, 1932 to Virginia and Jose Gonzalez.  She married Leoncio Quintero Escobedo on October 3,1948.

Raquel was the loving mother of Raquel, Juan, Irasema, Leticia, Sara, Sandra, and Esther. She was the true pillar of her family and raised her children with unconditional love and devotion. She was an active member of Pathway Assembly of God Church for over 60 years.  Having a servant’s heart, Raquel was always ready to help as needed and wherever needed. Her doors were always open to anyone in search of a word of encouragement and prayer.  As a self-made seamstress, there wasn’t a sewing project she wouldn’t tackle and complete, bringing joy to those who admired and trusted her talent.

Those left to cherish her memory are her children; Raquel Velasquez (David), Juan Escobedo (Gloria), Irasema Velasquez (Andy), Leticia Cuellar, Sara -Charlie Campbell (Darrin), Sandra Turner (Roy), Esther Pena (Moses), her siblings; Andres Gonzalez and Raul Gonzalez; and 22 grandchildren, 60 great grandchildren, and 3 great great grandchildren. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, Virginia and Jose, her husband, Leoncio, her sister, Concepcion Olvera, and her brothers, Abel and Ruben Gonzalez.

A Prayer Service will be held at Pathway Assembly of God Church, 3115 Cornell, on Friday, August 19, 2022 @ 7pm.  Funeral Service will be at 10am on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at Pathway Assembly of God Church.
