Our LOVING MOTHER, Olga Benavides Guerra, passed away peacefully on April 14, 2018, surrounded by her family.
She was a life-long resident of Laredo and a well-respected court reporter at the 111th District Court until her retirement. She ran the court efficiently for Judge E.D. Salinas and Emilio “Chito” Davila.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 42 years, Raul Guerra, her parents Luis G. Benavides and Amanda Feuille Benavides, her siblings Luis G. Benavides Jr., Gloria H. Laurel, Ana Maria Benavides, and Jose E. Benavides.
She is survived by her daughters: Rosa M. (Gary) Andon, Maria R. († Michael) Caress, Olga A. (Rafael Jr.) Garcia, Hilda “Toni” († Ron) Blake, Adriana (Fausto Jr.) Dovalina, and Ana Laura “Lulu” (David) Newman. Left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren: Shelly (J.R.) Johnson, Alissa Andon, Marc (Eden) Caress, Rafael R. (Lucy) Garcia, Roberto L. (Marlynn) Garcia, Amanda S. Chamberlain, Ronald K. Chamberlain Jr., Brian P. Newman, Lindsay K. Newman, and seven great-grandchildren.
She will also be greatly missed by her loving “niece” Raquel “Rocky” Dias (Peter) Sakai, her brother-in-law, J.V. (Nancy) Laurel, her sister-in-law, Juanita S. Benavides and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Dr. Gilberto Garza-Lozano, ALTUS Hospice, nurses: Marqi, Erica, Melissa and Sammy, as well as Tere and Blanca who saw to our mother’s comfort and care.
Sara, Panchita y Jacky, no hay suficientes palabras para expresar el amor y agradecimiento que sentimos por ustedes. El amoroso cuidado, cariño y ternura que le brindaron a nuestra madre estos últimos seis años jamás se podrán repagar. Siempre serán consideradas nuestra familia.
