Maura Ramirez Obituary

We come together today to honor and celebrate the life of Maura Ramirez Castellanos, a cherished matriarch, who passed away peacefully on January 29, 2024, in McAllen, Texas, at the age of 89. Born on August 2, 1934, in Rio Rico, Tamaulipas, Maura's life was a testament to love, resilience, and the enduring strength of family.

Maura, known affectionately by her given name, was a beacon of warmth and affection to all who knew her.

Her journey began alongside her late husband, Ramiro Ramirez, with whom she built a legacy that spanned generations. Together, they nurtured a family that grew to include their beloved children: Carmen Ramirez Castellanos (Isidoro Compean Chávez), the late Esther Hernández (Aurelio Hernández), the late Raúl Ramírez (Sylvia Ramírez), the late Ramiro Ramírez Jr (Romana Orozco), the late Reynaldo Ramírez (Irma Ramírez Tinoco), Rigoberto Ramírez (Yolanda Martínez Ramirez), Rebecca Luna (Juan M Luna), Elizabeth Ramírez Ramírez (David Ramírez), Anna Ortegon Ramírez (Martín Ortegon), Raquel Díaz de León Ramírez (Martín Díaz de León), Victoria Rodarte Ramírez (Isaí Rodarte), and Pedro Ramírez (Laura Isela Ramírez).

Maura's legacy further blossomed with her 70 grandchildren, 130 great-grandchildren, and 41 great-great-grandchildren, each of whom carried a piece of her spirit and love.

Today, as we bid farewell to Maura, we do so with heavy hearts, but also with profound gratitude for the time we were blessed to share with her. She left behind a beautiful tapestry of relationships that will continue to flourish in her absence. Her spirit will forever remain a guiding light in the lives of those she loved.

Maura Ramirez Castellanos will be deeply missed, yet her legacy will continue to inspire and influence for generations to come.
