ALICIA M. MORALES, passed away peacefully at the age of 97 on Thursday, August 20, 2020 at her residence accompanied by her beloved daughter, Alicia “Lichita” Dromgoole.

Mrs. Morales was born on May 15, 1923 to the late Guadalupe C. and Juana L. Martinez in Laredo, Texas. She was married to the late Richard G. Morales, Sr. on December 31, 1943 until his untimely death on August 28, 2005. They shared 61 years of marriage and were blessed with five children.

Mrs. Morales lived her life to the fullest by spending quality time with her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was a 1943 graduate of Martin High School and worked as her husband’s law office manager, legal assistant and “do-it-all” until her husband’s death.

She was a devout Catholic, a wonderful and creative cook and in reality, a true gourmet cook before the term was actually invented. She dedicated her entire life to her husband and to her family and will be remembered for her kindness, generosity and love for her family and everyone she knew. She had a special talent for making each and every member of her family feel that they were her favorite.

Mrs. Morales was predeceased by her parents, Guadalupe C. Martinez and Juana L. Martinez; her husband, Richard G. Morales, Sr.; her sisters, Esperanza M. Garcia, Amelia Martinez, Consuelo M. Guerra and brothers, Jesus Martinez and Guadalupe Martinez, Jr.

Her beautiful life will forever be cherished in the lives of her children: Richard G. (Lula) Morales, Jr.; Alicia “Lichita” Dromgoole; Javier (Cindy) Morales; Roberta (Magida) Morales; and Cristina (Richard) Blom of San Antonio, Texas; sister, Beatriz M. Azios; and sisters-in-law, Graciela Martinez and Lydia G. Martinez; grandchildren, Deana Marie (Jeff) Locklear, Ricardo E. (Lisa) Morales, Carlos A. (Gitanjali) Morales, Eduardo L. (Kendra) Morales and Diana Alicia Morales; great-grandchildren, Mikhaela A. Locklear, Isabella J. Locklear, Sofia E. Locklear, Ricardo David Morales, Daniella Elise Morales, Gabriella Alicia Morales, Diego Mathias Morales, Mateo Augusto Morales, Douglas Augusto Morales, Max Sebastian Morales and numerous nephews/nieces.

A special tribute is well deserved for her wonderful and dedicated doctor, Adonis Zuniga-Goldwater, M.D. who treated her until the end of her life, as well as to her caregivers, Laura Echeverria, Karla Segura and Gloria Garcia and the staff at Altus Hospice, especially her nurse, Marqui Ramirez.

Our thoughts are with all the Morales Family. Richard, your eulogy was so thoughtful, just wonderful. Each of the following tributes, beginning with Lula, were so heart moving. So much love in all the words shared. Your mother is smiling and very proud of each of you. Our mothers always remain with us.

Extending my condolences and deepest sympathy to my cousins and the entire Morales family after the passing of Tia Alicia. When I saw Alicia on my visits to Laredo (usually at Aunt Amelia's house), she was always interested in how I was doing in my studies and career. I regret not being able to attend her service in person. From your cousin Robert Martinez in Austin.

Your Mom was a wonderful person. When my Mom was Ill she would call and check on her daily and after she passed she would call my dad and check on him. She would fill Dad in about Pancho Saeta and they would talk about old friends. When Dad’s Alzheimer’s became advanced she would call me for updates. I enjoyed talking to your Mom. I’m so sorry for your loss.
