Obituary of Donaciana Ortega


MCALLEN - On Friday, February 23, 2018, our Mamita Linda’s golden heart stopped beating. Our beautiful Ortega Matriarch is now rejoicing with the love of her life, Rene Ortega, in the presence of their Lord and Savior. She leaves us with a legacy of selflessness, servitude, generosity and thoughtfulness that was nothing short of God’s commandment to love one another. She was a God-fearing woman who has left us with a huge hole in our hearts and a beautiful path of memories and love. Our hearts are filled with hope that we will see our beautiful Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Sister and Inspiration on the golden streets one day.

She was born in Mission, Texas on March 19, 1938. She is preceded in death by her husband of 48 years, Rene Ortega; her parents, Isidro and San Juanita Gonzalez; two brothers, Pedro and Ramon Gonzalez; and a sister, Emma G. Bocanegra.
