Obituary for Maria "Mom Mary" Morales Prado

Mary M. Prado (Mom Mary) was born in San Marcos, Texas on February 10, 1950 to mother Elida Guerrero Rios, passed away on January 29, 2019 at the age of 68. Mary was a dedicated and hard worker at Texas State University as a custodial supervisor for 28 years before she retired in February 2011. Mary enjoyed dancing and listening to Tejano music, especially to Roberto Pulido, Little Joe, Jimmy Gonzalez, and Ruben Ramos. Mary loved to be outside watering her plants, all 28 of them, and taking care of her yard making sure her grass was green.
Mary was raised by her maternal grandmother, Guadalupe Carrillo Guerrero. Mary was a loving mother and grandmother. Mary carried on both parental roles in 1986 when her husband passed away. Mary was an incredibly strong person and she made us who we are today. Mary loved family get-togethers when she would spend hours cooking and preparing meals for her families’ company. Mary was a member of St. John’s Catholic Church and she recited the Holy Rosary daily and would attend mass on Saturdays.
