Concepcion Vasquez

Connie Vasquez, 86, of Texas City, Texas passed away on December 4th, 2016.  She was born on August 15th, 1930 to Marcus and Belen Villa.

Connie was retired from White-Sellies Jewelry & Pawn where she was employed over twenty years.  Connie realized that retirement was not active enough for her so she volunteered at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic School where she was later employed as a cafeteria worker.

Before her illness, Connie was very involved in her church, St. Mary of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church and she enjoyed her time each week with her cousin, Barbara at Adoration.   She was proud of being the top fund raiser for selling the most bricks when the new church was being built.

Connie was known for helping people and her love of cooking, especially her enchiladas and tamales.  Connie was a great influence and touched many lives during her time with us.

She is preceded in death by parents, Marcus and Belen Villa and Louis and Antonia (Toni) Santos, Theresa Romero, sister and Frank Villa, brother.

She is survived by son, Mike Vasquez and wife Glenda of Houston, Texas; grandchildren, Cameron Vasquez and Ashton Vasquez; brother, Benny Villa; and numerous nephews, nieces and cousins.

Pallbearers are Cameron Vasquez, Troy Villa, Mark Villa, Freddie Ayala, David Grullon and Larry Quintanilla.
