Mary Louise Gutierrez was born on October 21, 1944 in Houston, Texas to the late Abundio and Delfina Cantu and was called home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 21, 2022 in Seguin, Texas. She is preceded in death by her siblings, Edward Cantu, Lupe Cantu, Jack Cantu, Frances Soliz and Josephine Damian.
Mary was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt. She was a hardworking, devoted, generous and giving person. She and her husband, Richard, raised two daughters, Melissa and Debbie, with love and kindness. She nurtured and helped to care for her 4 grandchildren, Joshua, Scarlet, Liam and Violet with the same love and devotion. She lived for her grandchildren and moved to Seguin, Texas to be closer to them. She loved to sit on the porch and watch the birds and squirrels, wave at the neighborhood children, spend time with her family and dance her heart out to her favorite Elvis Presley and Barry Manilow tunes.
Mary is survived by her husband of 47 years, Richard Gutierrez; daughters, Melissa Teague (Chris), Debbie Gutierrez Rickman (Ashley); grandchildren, Joshua Gutierrez, Scarlet Sherry, Liam and Violet Teague. She is also survived by her sister, Reynalda Carmona.
The family would like to thank Guadalupe Regional Home Hospice for their care. They were loving caretakers and we are extremely grateful for their dedicated service.
Mary was the best wife, mom and grandma. She will be remembered and forever loved by her family and friends.
