Mary Alice Rodriguez
Oct. 29, 1953 - July 11, 2013
After an amazing fight with cancer, Our Heavenly Father called our beloved wife, mother and grandmother to rest.
Mary is preceded in death by her parents Marcus and Beatrice Pacheco and her brothers Mario and Rick Pacheco.
Mary is survived by her husband of 38 years Jesse L. Rodriguez; daughter Melissa Ann Rodriguez; grandchildren Tyler Raquel Rizk and Braylon Erik Olvera; brother Joe Raymond Pacheco and sister Beatrice Pacheco; along with numerous nieces and nephews.
Mary loved and was loved by all those who came to know her. Known to many pre-kinder children as Ms. Mary, she loved her job as Bus Monitor with SMCISD.
Mary was a lover of life and the outdoors. She lived to spend time with her family whom she loved deeply. It is this love that fueled her will and her desire to fight. Her family and the love she had for them is what provided the courage and strength to battle cancer. A battle she chose to fight alone to protect all she loved and lived for. The last years of her life were spent with the family she loved and doing the things she enjoyed. Never once letting on she literally was fighting for her life as well.
