Obituary

 

 “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord”

2 Corinthians 5:8

 

Our beloved mother, Josefina C. Blanco, 94, entered to her eternal rest on Saturday, October 27, 2018, at her home surrounded by her children.

”Pepa” as she was known to her close friends and relatives, was born on September 18, 1924, to Maria and Herman Chapa.

“Pepa” was a devoted loving wife, mother, and grandmother to her family. Her strong devotion to them and her Catholic faith were her greatest traits.  She was quiet, compassionate, kind, and loyal woman.  When faced with life’s challenges, with dignity and through her faith in God’s grace, she made the best out of every situation.   Her steadfast, love and gentle smile will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

“Pepa” is preceded in death by her parents Maria and Herman Chapa and her beloved husband of 56 years Leandro L. Blanco.

Left to cherish her memory are children; Juan E. (Sylvia) Blanco, Leandro Blanco Jr, Nora A. (Renee) Cortes, and Diana M. Pena; grandchildren, Amanda (Eduardo Jimenez) Peña, Arnold Peña, Jessica Blanco, Jackie Blanco, 9 great-grandchildren along with numerous other family members and friends.

The family will receive guests on Thursday, November 1, 2018, from 7:00 am to 9:00 am at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services.  Funeral Procession will depart the chapel at 9:30 am to Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church with the funeral mass to be celebrated at 10:00 am.  Interment will follow to the Calvary Catholic Cemetery.  Pallbearers will be Juan E. Blanco, Leandro Blanco Jr., Renee Cortes, Jr., Eduardo Jimenez, Rodolfo F. Juarez, and Arnold Peña.  Honorary pallbearers will be Jesus “Chuy” Juarez, Rodolfo U. Juarez and Juan Francisco Juarez.

Funeral arrangements are by Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services, 1320 Trey Dr. Laredo, TX 78041 (956)723-3611.  You may leave condolences to the family online at www.freddickey.com

Sentimos mucho la pérdida de su ser querido por eso queremos conpartir con ustedes el consuelo que Dios nos da mediante las escrituras. Por ejemplo en Isaías 33:24 dice que llegará el día en que nadie dirá “estoy enfermo”. En Revelación o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que “Dios limpiara toda lagrima de los ojos y la muerte no será más, ni existira ya mas lamento ni clamor ni dolor”. Hechos 24:15 habla de “una resurrección”. Jehova Dios muy pronto acabara con toda la maldad y el sufrimiento, ademas nos dice que tiene el deseo de devolverles la vida a nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.

Mis sentidas condolencias se como se siente tal ves ustedes no me conosen solo quiero compartir una esperanza no se afliga la palabra de dios nos dice en eclesiastes 9:5 que ellos estan dormidos y van a despertar un dia y eso es un inmenso consuelo para nosotros porque aveses nos preguntamos cuanto tiempo me voy asentir con este dolor y como puedo encontrar consuelo bueno los invito a leer la biblia salmos 37:29 donde dice que los justos poseran la tierra y residiran para siempre sobre ella noto la promesa de jehova para consolarnos a cada uno de nosotros que sufrimos tambien debemos recordar lo que nos dice revelacion 21:4,5 ahi nos meciona que muy pronto no va existir la muerte. Espero que estas palabras les den el consuelo que nesesitan en estos momentos si desea saber mas puede visitar la pagina www.jw.org
