Tuesday, January 5, 2021

Felicita Cruz Moreno, 97, of San Marcos, Texas, was called home by Our Heavenly Father on Thursday, December 31, 2020. Felicita was the first-born daughter of Julian and Francisca Cruz, born on May 18, 1923 in Staples, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents, husband: Ascencion Moreno, sister: Guadalupe Garza, brothers: Jose, Gabriel, and Agapito Cruz and infant son, Santiago.

Felicita is survived by her son Francisco Moreno, daughter Hortencia Urrutia and husband Epimenio Jr., and daughter-in-law Victoria Robinson of San Marcos. Surviving siblings include Gilberto (Amelia) Cruz.
