Mary Flores Ramirez, resident of Porter, became free from her earthly bonds, ascending into the heavens, to be with our Holy Father on May 17, 2013 at the age of 71. Born Sept. 8, 1941 in San Marcos, she is preceded in death by father of her daughter Jesse Ramirez; parents Benito Sr. and Carment Flores. There are several chapters in Mary's life , but the one chapter she cherished was her daughter Regina "Gina" and grandchildren. Even her son-in-law Chris was like a son to her. Though Mary begins her new life with our Lord, like the wind, her warmth and love will always be felt.
