Obituary

Laura Marta DeLeon, born November 25, 1949 went to be with the Lord, Saturday, April 17, 2021.

Laura was a dedicated teacher in the San Marcos ISD for many years, and also in the Laredo United ISD from which she retired in 2008. She later continued to serve students as a substitute teacher. She was a woman of deep faith and loved participating in her prayer group.

Laura will be remembered for her strong spirit, her energy and joy for life. She was known for her kind nature and words of encouragement to others in need. Laura always remembered to send cards to loved ones for every occasion. She had a voracious appetite for great food and always enjoyed a stimulating conversation. Aside from her diverse interests, Laura enjoyed being with her dear friends and mostly, her loving family.

Left to cherish her memory are her loving children: John Noe DeLeon, (Elizabeth), Christopher Led Deleon; her brothers and sister: Hector Gutierrez, Jr. (Debbie), Adriana Gutierrez (Ron Lucas), Gabriel Gutierrez (Elma Margarita), and Javier Gutierrez; and her grandchildren: Lilliana and Autumn Deleon, and Piper Deleon.

I am heartbroken about the loss of my dear and best friend, Laura. She was like a sister to me. I will cherish all the loving memories we've had since our childhood. She was a kind and loving woman with incredible strength and devotion. I will miss her infectious laughter, her encouraging words, her love for soul music and her beautiful birthday wishes she sent to us each year. I know she is with our Lord now and no longer in pain. Our deepest sympathy to the family. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Love you all!

My deepest condolences to the family of Mrs.deleon. she was 1 of my high school teachers back in 99. She was one of the nicest and best teachers I ever had.

Laura, you were a caring, loving person, friend to so many. I will forever be grateful to you because in many time of need, you and Adriana took care of me. You would drive me home from school when I broke my ankle and was on crutches. I have never forgotten!! I extend my most sincere condolences to your sons and your grandchildren, to Hector, Adriana, Gabriel, and Javier and their families. You were a person of deep faith. You have been welcomed in Heaven by many. Know you were loved on this Earth and will be missed by many.

Sincere condolences to the Gutierrez Family...🙏🙏 Laura, will forever be in our hearts. There isn’t just one memory to reflect on, there are so many. I will always remember her smile that reflected into our lives. She was both courageous and strong. Her {Faith}, gave her purpose. Never taking anything for granted, Laura loved her family and most especially, her two sons. Her friends were extended family to her. To have known Laura was a blessing in itself. Whenever you would be in company with Laura, you knew adventurous moments would be remembered. I will remember Laura always for the Life that she lived. She is in Heaven now, reunited with her Mother and other individuals who passed before her. Thank you (Loli’s) for all the Joy you gave us. Until we meet again...Amen 🙏🙏

Extending deep and heartfelt sympathy to Laura's family. Laura and I were shopping buddies. We enjoyed going downtown seeking bargains. We would work up an appetite walking the streets of Laredo. Afterwards we would sit down at one of our favorite restaurants and indulge. I will miss her so much.

I grew up one block away on Gustavus Street from the Gutierrez family. I went to school with Hector and we have remained friends all of these years. I had great admiration for Laura. She was a wonderful, kind and generous person. May God Bless all of her family who will miss her so very much. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.

My sincerest condolences to the family of Laura De Leon. She will be greatly missed by all those who knew and loved her. I will never forget her. May she Rest In Peace.

I considered Laura a friend, not just a co-worker. I will miss her infectious laughter, her candor, and her positivity. One of the last times we spoke, when I shared my difficulty in caregiving for my mother who has Alzheimer’s disease, she took some time to comfort me with her kind words. May her light continue to shine in this world and may God wrap his loving arms around her. ✝️🙏🏻

 

Hector, Debbie and Camila Gutierrez posted on 4/19/21

Laura was a beautiful human-being who had the heart and soul of an Angel to both her family and close friends. My wife Debbie, daughter Camila, and I will miss her greatly and remember the beautiful person that she was. We know that she is at peace now and that all pain, worry, and suffering is gone. She was one of the most faithful Christians that I have ever known, and she and her Maker already know each other well. She never missed a birthday or special occasion with my family, and getting her notes of joy and love will leave a hole in our lives. The best thing is that she is with our Mom and Dad, many Gutierrez and Garcia aunts and cousins! Life in HEAVEN will never be the same. So many loving memories too numerous to count! And we will miss her always closing every conversation with us with a MUAH (kiss)!!!!
