McAllen ~ Maria Enriqueta Saenz Gomez, 88, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday September 1, 2021. Mary was a lifelong resident of McAllen Texas, where she and her family attended Sacred Heart Catholic Church. She graduated from Roma High School, and at one point was a member of the “Damas Catolicas”.
She was preceded in death by her parents Rafael and Celia Saenz along with her beloved husband Victoriano (Nano) Gomez.
Survivors include her daughters, Anna Ozuna (Johnny), Leticia Gomez Perches, son Noe Amando Gomez (Naomi), and beloved sister Rebecca F. Saenz. Grandchildren include Juan Gilberto Ozuna Jr., Gina Marie Ozuna Martinez, Victor Anthony Ozuna, Steven Nicolas Ozuna, Luke Aaron Gomez, Elias Joseph Gomez, Mario Alan Perches and Gabriela Lourdes Perches, 9.5 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Visitation will be held from 4:00 to 7:00PM with Rosary service to begin at 7:00PM, on Sunday September 12th in the Rivera Funeral Chapel at 1901 Pecan Blvd in McAllen TX. Funeral Mass will be on September 13th at Sacred Heart Catholic Church at 1:30 PM to be followed by a burial service at Valley Memorial Gardens.
Mary was a loving wife, mother, daughter, and grandmother. Her smile would light up any room and her laughter was as contagious as it was boisterous. She loved Victor, her children, aunt Becky and her grandchildren to a fault, and was always bragging about them to others. She loved bingo and jokes, and always had a song of praise unto the Lord when she did any chore. She was a joy to be around and thus will be sweetly remembered and sorely missed.
