Elaine Irene Acuna
Our family is saddened to announce the passing of Elaine Irene Acuna on August 31, 2021 in Pasadena, Texas. Elaine was born on March 25, 1954 in Kingsville, Texas, one of ten children, to predeceased parents Baldemar and Mary Jane Acuna. She is survived by her husband Franciso J Perez, children Melissa and Rico Martinez, grandchildren Marissa Martinez, Clarissa Martinez, and Shawn Armstrong Jr, as well as great grandchildren Alissa, Moriah, and Makayla Dunlap. She is preceded in death by her two daughters Oralia and Melinda Martinez.
Elaine graduated from Milby High School in Houston, Texas and retired after 35 years in retail banking. She enjoyed being around family, laughing and making jokes. Especially with her grand babies. On the weekends she enjoyed antiquing and riding around with her husband Frank on their Harley Davidson Motorcycle. Throughout the years she loved being with her brothers and sisters making lasting memories that will live on forever.
She loved listening to music like Ramon Ayala and having a cold margarita. Being around her was always a good time because she loved to joke, laugh and sing. She knew no stranger as she would have conversations with just about anybody without judgement or hesitation. It is because of this she was loved by so many. Some knew her by Elaine, some by Irene but regardless we all knew her to be an amazing person.
We invite you to help celebrate her life at Carnes Funeral Home at 1102 Indiana St, South Houston, TX 77587 on Wednesday September 8th, The viewing will be from 3-4 PM with a service at 4PM
