February 6, 1929 - April 29, 2022
Our mother, Dahlia P. Valdez, was born in Port Arthur, Texas to Marcelino Pelayo and Rebecca del Castillo Pelayo. She later moved with her family to San Antonio, Texas where she attended Ursuline Academy from which she was graduated in May 1946. She married Robert J. Valdez in 1950 and they raised us in the Jefferson High area. Mom was a stay-at-home mother for our early years, sending us to St. Paul’s Elementary School and later, the boys to Antonian and Becky to Ursuline. She later became an administrative assistant for the Bexar County Independent School District and the San Antonio Children’s Center. She was widowed in 1996 upon the passing of our father. She lived in her home until 2019. Afterwards, she lived with Becky, who cared for her constantly in her home. Above all else, Mom enjoyed being with her family. During her healthy years, she enjoyed all of the holidays and gatherings with family. Our grandparents, Marcelino and Rebecca Pelayo, predeceased our mother. Mom is survived by her children, Robert E. (Lori) Valdez, Ronald A. (Patricia) Valdez, and Rebecca (Dave) Turner. She is survived by her grandchildren: Sarah C. (Sean) Tate, Robert Carlos Valdez, Katherine Marie (Nathaniel) Guerrero, Brian (Ashlea) Valdez, Melissa Valdez, and Phillip Valdez; and great grandchildren: Dorian Tate, Sebastian Tate, Clarissa Guerrero, and Nicholas Guerrero. Also, she is survived by her sister, Josephine (Aunt Toby) Alvarez of Port Arthur, as well as her nephews and niece, Gilbert, Rosemarie, and Steve Alvarez. Services are provided by Mission Park North. Rosary at 11:30 AM followed by Mass at 12 noon at Mission Concepción (the church Mom attended when healthy), followed by interment at San Fernando No. 2 at a location she and my father previously obtained.
