BAYTOWN, TX. – Amalia M. Hinojosa entered into eternal rest on Wednesday, the 16th of March 2022 in the comfort of her residence in Baytown, Texas surrounded by her family. She was eighty-eight of age.

Amalia worked at the Brownsville Independent School District for nineteen years as a bus monitor before retiring. She was a devout Catholic and dedicated to her family.
