Rita Jimenez Alvarado


Rita Jimenez Alvarado, age76, passed away peacefully on Friday, September 12, 2014 at her home with her loving family at her side.  Rita was born on May 22, 1938 in Millersview, Texas, the daughter of Jose` and Tereza (LeDesma) Sosa.  Rita was raised in the Strawn and Eastland, Texas areas.


Together with her family, Rita worked with the migrants in the Edmore area working in the crops of apples, potatoes and cucumbers and picking cotton in the Texas area.   Rita’s mother passed away when Rita was 16 and Rita raised her seven siblings.  In April, 1957, Rita married Jose` Remedios Alvarado.  After 43 years of marriage, Jose` Alvarado passed away on February 27, 2000.


As a homemaker, Rita loved her pets: cats, dogs and birds and enjoyed crocheting, sewing, cooking, and gardening.  On September 11 she was presented with a Certificate of Appreciation by Home Township for beautifying the town with her flowers.  Rita loved spending time with her family, grandchildren and the children in her neighborhood. 


Rita is survived by her children:  Maria Nemetz of Edmore, Teresa Alvarado of Grand Rapids, Micaela Alvarado of Cisco, Texas, Janie (James) Jolley of Edmore, Dagoberto Alvarado of Grand Rapids, Martin Alvarado of Edmore, Heraclio Alvarado of Texas and Cristina (Richard) Pierce of Stanton.  She is also survived by Raquel of Stanton who she considered a daughter;  28 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren; three brothers:  Isabel (Esperanza) Jimenez and Zenon Nava of Breckenridge, Texas, Daniel (Elena) Nava of Strawn, Texas and a sister, Virginia (Manuel) Sauceda of Eastland, Texas, and several nieces and nephews.  Rita “adopted” a family of “sisters” when she settled in Edmore: Aurora Patino, Agustina Peralez,  Amparo Gonzalez , and Frances Baez.  Sophia Wiegle of Austria and Maria Cruz of Mexico were also her extended granddaughters.


Rita was preceded in death by her husband, Jose`; her parents, Jose` and Tereza; a granddaughter, Megan Jolley; siblings:  Felix DeLos Santos, Gloria DeLaCruz, Pascuala Jimenez, Federico Jimenez, Raymundo Nava and Tomas Nava.


The family would like to thank Misty, Bonnie and Becca of Spectrum Health Hospice for the care, love and kindness they showed Rita in her final months.

A Spanish Mass of Christian Burial has been scheduled for Tuesday, September 16, 2014 at 11 a.m. with Father Luis Garcia at the St Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish, 1051 E. Howard City-Edmore Road in Edmore.  The family will receive the support of extended family members and friends at a visitation scheduled for Monday, September 15, 2014 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. at Brigham Funeral Chapel, 413 East Gilson in Edmore, with a rosary at 7 p.m. with Father Dominic Tirkey. Interment will be in Vinewood Cemetery, Edmore.

    When I think of our Wita I remember some of the happiest times of my childhood. Walking behind my mother and father through the doors of her home and her asking, "Tienes un huevo?" which of course I
    did, along with the best tortillas ever! Wito would of course reach for the jar of chiclets he kept on the shelf over the sink ,let me pick two of my favorites. Then of course seeing my adorable
    little cousins was awesome too, I remember all of them <3 I'm sad she's not here, yet at the same time I am happy she is with our Wito in heaven watching over us all as she did in life. I'll miss
    you Wita and will do my best to honor your memory in every way I can! <3

    My Deepest Sympathy Theresa Alvarado and family.

  • Heidi Dygert (Monday, September 15 14 12:31 pm EDT)

    I know from the stories I heard and the few times I met her that she was a very special lady. I know where my best friend got her compassionate, but feisty nature. The perfect combination! She is in
    the arms of her husband once again. My God be with you at this difficult time.

  • michaelia clark (Monday, September 15 14 07:29 am EDT)

    Wita, you are undoubtedly the most amazing women I will ever meet in my life. I selfishly wish that you where still here with me but deep down I know you are in a much better place. I can picture you
    now smiling so bright at wito as he calls you Bobbie and tries to get you to dance. This time wita, I pictures you not only laughing at his silliness but I picture you taking his hand and dancing. I
    love you wita and will miss you everyday. I am so very proud to say you where my grandma, you are forever in my heart wita and memories of you will never fade.

  • Janie Saucedo (Sunday, September 14 14 02:15 am EDT)

    My most sincere condolences to you all. Tia Rita will be missed greatly by all. My heart is heavy for the loss of Tia and especially not being able to be there with you all. My thoughts and prayers
    are with y'all that The Lord embrace each one of you with his loving arms and give you comfort, strength and peace. God bless hugs and love. Janie Santos Saucedo and family

  • Rosa M. De La Cruz Weatherly (Saturday, September 13 14 04:16 pm EDT)

    Tia Rita,
    I'm so happy you've gone home and no longer have to suffer. Say hi to my mommy and to my Tia Paz. I will miss knowing you were always there when needed just like I miss Tia Paz and my mom. And I
    can't wait to see you again.
