Barbara (Herrera)Arredondo, devoted spouse, mother, sibling, and a patient friend to all, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Friday, January 12, 2024 at the age of 61. Even though her passing was expected she will be missed by many.
Barbara was the fourth of seven children born to Ramon and Bertha Herrera in Laredo, Texas. As a child she attended C.L. Milton elementary school. M.B. Lamar middle school, and went on to attend J.W. Nixon high school as did the rest of her siblings and graduated class of 1981. Barbara attended Texas A&M International University and majored in special education and has been part of the United South Middle school Leopard family the last 13 years.
Barbara was a devote catholic and an active member of the San Martin family. Her devotion to the church shined most in her work and family. She was a devoted mother and wife and helped care for her mother until her death in November of 2021. Barbara taught special education and was always tirelessly working on the needs of her students. She was at the school when the doors opened and was always asked to leave so that they could close up. If there was any one word that could best describe Barbara it would be patient. She was patient with everyone and everything she was truly the kindest soul this world had to offer. Her devotion and patience to her school/ students, family and church will be missed by all.
She was preceded in death by her parent Ramon F. Herrera Sr. And Bertha Herrera, along with sister Anna Laura(Herrera) Garza, and brother Ramon(Raymond) Herrera.
