Anita de Luna Rodriguez was born January 23, 1935 in Laredo, Texas.
She was 79 years young when she went with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Anita was a kind, generous, beautiful and knowledgeable woman who always strived to learn more and share with the people she loved. During her early years, she worked at Hachar’s Department Store in the cosmetic department and then later at Central Pharmacy. Throughout her life she was a constant companion to her loving mother Angela Vallejo, and then later she was her caregiver until Angela left this world in 1998. They are now enjoying each other’s company again. Though she met her husband, Eduardo Rodriguez, late in life they managed to spend 41 happy years together. Anita was an important part of our lives and though we know she is in a better place, she is missed with all of our hearts.
Anita was preceded in death by her mother Angela Vallejo.
She is survived by her loving husband Eduardo Rodriguez, her step daughter Xochitl Rodriguez, step grandsons Angel Rodriguez, Eduardo Rodriguez II, and Fidel Rodriguez; Her sister Aurora (Douglas) Shearer; nieces Cindy Thompson, Denine (Kurt) Parker, nephew David (Amy) Shearer and her cousin and best friend Gloria Gutierrez, as well as, her grand nieces, cousins and second cousins.
