Besides her four children, she has eight grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was an entrepreneur, opening and operating El Caballero Latin Club, a highly successful nightclub in Houston in the 1980’s. But she always made time for family, with family entertaining and cooking. After retirement, she also enjoyed bingo and an occasional Chardonnay.
