Mary Alice Sanchez

Mary Alice Sanchez, 76, of Mineral Wells, is now in the loving arms of her Lord. She left behind so many loved ones and friends on May 1, 2013. Rosary will be held at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church on Sunday, May 5, 2013, starting at 6:30 p.m. Funeral Mass will be Monday, May 6, 2013, at 10 a.m. at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church; burial will follow at Woodland Park Cemetery.

Mary was born in Bennett, the daughter of Federico and Paulina (Zepeda) Ortiz. Mary was always thinking of others; this became very clear in the 6th grade; she quit school to take care of and raise her younger siblings.

She worked at Perry Equipment Co. for 5 years before marrying her true love, Leonardo Sanchez Jr., Feb. 11, 1967. She then had an adventurous life traveling with him and raising her family during his military career.

Mary could be called a mother to the town; she had such a loving touch about her, and anyone she passed could immediately build a bond with her. She had a strong bond and love for her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

If you saw Mary, you saw her husband. They were always together at church, local charity functions; anything one of them did, they did as a team.

Mary leaves behind: husband, Leonardo Sanchez Jr.; children: Sonny Havens, Ethel P. Havens, Sandra Maldonado, Mary Rodriguez, Albert Sanchez, Edmond Dale Sanchez and Russell Sanchez; step-children: Leonardo Sanchez III, Mariano Sanchez and Adriana M. Sanchez; brothers and sisters: Judy Puryear, Raymond J. Ortiz, Dqmas Ortiz, Zenaida Ortiz, Christina Ortiz and Paul Ortiz; 17 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews
