In loving memory of

Herminia Rios Villarreal
January 25, 1924 - February 5, 2024

Herminia (Minnie) Rios Villarreal was born on January 25, 1924, in Yorktown, Texas. Her sun set on February 5th, 2024, in Stevinson, Ca.
She was a woman of many talents, organization, and leadership. She raised a family of six, all born from 1949 to 1959. As a devoted mother she nurtured her children to love each other and God.
Her talents and devotion were applied to sharing her faith with anyone in the communities where she lived throughout the years. She was the lady who established the Primera Iglesia Bautista in Idalou, Texas. Most recently she participated in bible studies and devotionals at the Iglesia Christian Bautista in Newman, Ca. which was named such at the suggestion of Herminia.
Herminia's ministry began with her husband's family in Mission, Texas which includes an ordained minister-Reverend Jesse Trevino. Her ministry continued through her last days praying for each and every one of her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchild by name.

"It is with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to Herminia, my daughter Yvonne's grandmother. I feel blessed that several months ago I was able to visit her and share a meal talking and laughing with her. My prayers for strength at this very difficult time for all her family who I love dearly. Sincerely, Linda C. Ivey"
