Yolanda Farias Pelaez, 72, was called to the presence of our Lord and entered into everlasting rest and peace on Wednesday, March 20, 2019.
Yolanda Pelaez will always be remembered as the first (and only) graduate of Laredo Beauty College’s Inaugural Class of 1965. In September of 1966, one year after her graduation, she opened Yolanda’s Beauty Salon, and successfully managed to stay in business at the original location for over 52 years. As time has passed, her clients have stayed true and loyal as they walked in and exited through her salon doors with beautiful and unique hairstyles. Yolanda was a true artist of her trade and shined brightly through her wonderful talents. She not only made everyone look and feel gorgeous, but made lasting memories with family, friends and clients that will live on forever.
Ms. Farias Pelaez is preceded in death by her parents, Juan and Isabel Farias and her brother, Juan Farias, Jr (Mandy).

Campero and Juan Manuel Pelaez; grandchildren, Christin Cabello, Adrian Cabello and Sebastian Cabello; husband, Valente Pelaez; siblings, Teresa Ramirez, Rosario Arzamendi, Irma (Alfredo) De Los Santos, Cleotilde (Reynaldo) Palos and Roberto R. (Mari) Farias; sister-in-law, Minerva Farias, nieces, nephews and other relatives.
