Frances "Momo" Delgado
Alice - Frances "Momo" Delgado, was born on April 7, 1919, in Alfred, Texas. She gained her angel wings and entered to eternal rest on July 30, 2021.Momo dedicated her life to her family. She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. The strength she led her family with, was beyond admirable. She was selfless, wise, and the grandest of grandmothers. Even until her last breath, she proved that strength and selflessness. She was exceptionally proud of all her roots. Her "raícitas", as she would call them. She prayed for each and every one of them daily and loved to talk about them. She truly loved and lived for her family. Everyone knew that the door to her home was always open, and that there was always something to eat. Momo loved to spend her time outside. Whether it was cutting the blades of her grass and mesquite branches with scissors, sweeping the dirt off the curb on her part of Lucero Street or watering her plants, she loved to be outside. She would drag all her plants around her little porch, daily, just to sweep and rinse every part of that porch. Even as she got older and her body became frail, no one could keep her inside. During football season, you could catch her watching all the football games, with her little notebook. Keeping track of all those "magic numbers and winnings"
She was welcomed into Heaven by her husband Jesus Delgado, her mother Maria Luera, her uncle,and aunt/parents Manuel and Modesta Saenz, her daughter Sylvia Delgado Garza, grandsons Mario Longoria, Michael Olivarez, her seven brothers and two sisters
She is survived by her brother, Lionel Luera of Kingsville, Texas; sons, Hector (Alma+) Delgado, Oscar (Elena) Delgado, and Homero (Mary Lou) Delgado, all of Alice, Texas; daughters, Hilda (Anselmo) Longoria of Alice, Texas, Vilma (Gary) Ross of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Gracie Delgado of McAllen, Texas; 20 Grandchildren, and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She leaves fond memories with everyone she met, she was loved by so many and will be tremendously missed.
