García and Ismael Moya; her parents, Nasaria Guerra Ortiz and Bonifacio Ortiz; her grandchildren, Blanca Cruz Moya and Travis Ryan Reed. In God's care and cherishing the memory of our beloved mother Juanita Moya. She leaves her loving children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and loyal friends.
Throughout her life, Juanita's greatest joy was being with family and friends. In 1952 she became a permanent U.S. resident. Shorty after she married our loving father Guadalupe Moya and raising 10 children in Mcallen Texas. Her legacy will guide our family in all the generations that follow her. She taught us to be strong, because she knew that one day we would need the strength to bear her loss. She will be warmly remembered for her grace, loyalty, and loving dedication to her children and all those around her.
Juanita took great delight in, gardening, knitting, and making quit blocks. We look forward to the glorious day when we will be reunited with her in that joyful resurrection, for our Savior Jesus is the first fruits of those who sleep. The family extends profound thanks to many people who offered prayers and support.
Mrs. Moya is survived by her eight children, Juan Moya, Carmen (Robert) Recio, Leticia Martinez, Virginia (Alfredo) Arenas, Elizabeth (Daniel) Garcia, Maria "Mary" Moya, Adda Sue Moya, and Guadalupe (Sandra) Moya; her daughter-in-law, Lydia Garcia; 26 grandchildren and 44 great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews.
