We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Holmgreen Mortuary
Maria Antonia Cano Torrez, age 79, passed away peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Saturday, August 27, 2022 in Leander, Texas. She was born on June 9, 1943 in Harlingen, Texas.
Mary was a loving mother and devoted grandmother who was extraordinarily attentive to all her grandchildren. She was known for her giving and being overly generous.
Mary was kind to all who met her no matter the circumstances nor how she felt. She knew her life was not her own and wholeheartedly lived by the scripture “no one is promised tomorrow”.
She knew with confidence that she was always in God’s hands. In humility, she demonstrated this belief through her actions and her trademarked response to all who met her, “God willing”….
We, her family, know one thing for sure…God was willing for us to be blessed beyond imagination because whether she was Mom, Mamaw or Mary she was an ever-present manifestation of God’s grace and love in our lives.
We know she ran into the arms of Jesus celebrating her healing and is now joyful in worship in Eternity.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Viola Cano-Trevino and brother Noe Cano.
Maria is survived by her children, Mike (Rene) Torrez IV of Keller, Texas, Mayte T. (William C.) Simpson of Cedar Park, Texas and Melissa M. (Adam J.) Wilson of Leander, Texas; grandchildren, Michael Torrez V, Desmond D. Torrez, Jaclyn T. Simpson, Isabella G. Simpson, Aaron J. Wilson and Hannah E. Wilson; sisters, Noelia Davila of New Braunfels, Texas and Eloina Davila of Lubbock, Texas; brothers, Genaro (Maricela) Cano, Josue (Enedelia) Cano, Felix (Haydee) Cano; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, September 3, 2022 at Beck Funeral Home, 1700 E. Whitestone Blvd, Cedar Park, Texas, 78613. Burial will follow at a later date at Cedar Park Cemetery in Cedar Park, Texas.
