BROWNSVILLE, TX. – Teresa Williams, 90, devoted mother, passed away in her sleep on July 15th, 2020 at her home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Laredo, Texas on January, 20th, 1930.
Throughout her childhood years she attended the boarding school El Colegio Hispano Mexicano in San Luis Potosí, Mexico. Teresa was a beautiful person who was a true inspiration to many due to her positive attitude towards life. She always loved cooking for her family as well as caring and loving her plants and flowers. For more than 20 years, she battled with Alzheimer’s disease while being a living miracle who always beat the odds. Teresa will be remembered as a selfless, caring, and loving mother who always had a smile on her face. Her happiness consisted of spending quality time with her daughter while being under her full care. They were always together and their unique bond will always be one of a kind.
She is preceded in death by her husband of 30 years, Colonel Herbert M. Williams; her parents, Jesus Martínez Prado and Dr. Consuelo Rojas de Martinez; as well as her brothers, Jesus Hermógenes and Elio Martinez Rojas.
Left to cherish her memory is her daughter, Zulema Williams (Robert Santa Ana Jr.); her sisters, Zulema Rojas and Dalila Garza (Jorge Garza); and her brother, Cesar Elmer Martinez (Isabel Martínez Vasquez); as well as numerous nephews and nieces.
We would like to thank Dr. Ricardo Adames and staff for always providing the best medical care. Much appreciation goes to Abundant Life Home Health for their services for more than 18 years as well as to the providers who always dedicated their time to my mother.
