January 28, 1924 – March 5, 2017
Our beloved “Memo” was born in San Antonio and is an original descendant of the Canary Islanders. Married to Arnold “Papa” for 39 years before his passing, she worked hard to create a beautiful and loving home for her only daughter and her grandchildren. In her later years, she spent much of her time with her great-grandchildren stressing the importance of family and faith, and keeping all of the many loved ones in her extended family together and close. Memo touched so many hearts and leaves a beautiful legacy of love and family.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Arnold Torres, her parents, Victorino & Ester Madrid, and her brothers, Artemio, Armando, and Arturo.
She is survived by her sister, Armida Zamarripa, her daughter, Norma Gallegos, and her grandchildren, Nicole & Scott Cleveland and Matthew and Lori Gallegos, her great-grandchildren, Jake & Josh Cleveland and Ben & Bella Gallegos, and many beloved nieces, nephews, and godchildren.
