Sara Saldana Trevino was born into eternal life on Wednesday, February 1, 2012. She entered her life’s journey in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, on February 19, 1924. Her family moved to Laredo when she was a young child. One of seven children, she was preceded in death by her parents, Modesto and Maria Saldana and siblings: Paulita Maldonado, Josefina Gonzalez, Aurora Gomez, Consuelo Leija, and Nicolas Saldana. She is survived by her husband of 69 years of marriage, Miguel Trevino; her only child, Miguel Trevino, Jr.; daughter-in-law, JoAnn Trevino and grandchildren: Cordy Coerver(Richard); Mike Trevino III(Stephanie) and Becky Trevino. Also surviving her are her great-grandchildren: Nico and Jake Coerver and Alexandra and Lucas Trevino. She is also survived by her sister Esperanza Saldana Pena and numerous nephews and nieces. Sarita was a devout Catholic who had a deep devotion to the Virgen de Guadalupe. In her lifetime she made several pilgrimages to the shrine dedicated to the virgin in Mexico City. Having this strong dedication, she would pray to her daily and her grandchildren would join her in her devotionals when they were in her care. She was always in a good mood and had a positive attitude toward life. Her soft spoken spirit always spoke words of encouragement. Never did she speak ill of anyone preferring to take the role of peace maker. Her pride and joy was her son and her main hobby was clipping articles from the newspaper of his sporting activities. This lasted until his adulthood gravitating to articles of her son’s professional accomplishments in the Health Care industry. A talented, creative and skilled seamstress, she made most of her own clothes. As she was blessed with grand-daughters, they, too, reaped benefits of her skills, as she made not only clothes for them but costumes and prom dresses. And her grandson and great-nephew were treated to delicious after-school treats. Sarita’s most cherished treasures were her grandchildren whom she loved dearly and her legacy to them are beautiful memories of time spent with them. Funeral arrangements are by Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Service, 4502 Thomas Ave. Laredo, TX 78041. Condolences may be expressed to the family by visiting us online at
