Our beloved mother, Olga P. Ayala, 82, went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, in Laredo, Texas. She will now rest in peace with our dad, Amado Ayala and brother David.
She was loved and adored by her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was affectionately known as “Huelita”, “Guelita,” “mom”, “Grandma”, “walnuts,” “madre”, “ama” and “mami,” She was the true meaning of what a mother is and should be. She had an incredible faith in our Lord Jesus and dedicated a great deal of her life to prayer. She loved and adored her children, grandchildren, her brothers and sisters from Monterrey, her nieces and nephews from Nuevo Laredo, whom she treated as her own children. She was unselfish and made many sacrifices for us and those she loved. She inspired others with her faith, prayers, hope and words of encouragement. Her unconditional love held our family together. She walked this earth, with humility, beauty and grace, which was recognized by everyone she came across. She was a blessing to all and an example of a true disciple of Christ.
She enjoyed family gatherings and preparing meals. She also enjoyed gardening, crocheting knitting and creating beautiful blankets and scarves, for her family.
Her legacy of faith, love and hope, will be carried on by her family, she will be dearly missed…
