We often referred to Her as Cher, Because of Her 3 comeback tours! Our Mother was a member of the Busy Bee Bunco Club for over 40 years and a member of the Union Fraternal Latinos Americanos Organization. She was a die hard Dallas Cowboys and San Antonio Spurs Fan but would also cheer for other teams to support her children. Our Mother was often asked how she raised these Loud and Crazy Children when She was such a soft spoken Women with a calm demeanor, But in reality Our Mother had a mischievous side unknown to many. She always enjoyed a good prank and loved to hear a good joke. Our appreciation for music came from her love of music from different genres. She often referred to the song “No Charge” by Shirley Caesar to remind us of all she did for us, just one of her many humorous ways. On behalf of our family we would like to thank each and everyone of you for your prayers, love and support. With love, Chelo's family.
