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.
