Mrs. Tillie Castro
June 20th, 1918 – November 27th 2013
Our cherished Tillie Castro, 95, left this earth on Wednesday, November 27th, 2013. She was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred Sanchez, and later Ramon Castro, sister, Beatrice DeLeon, daughter, Mary Mireles, mother, Elvira Castillo, and father, Mike Castle.
Tillie is survived by her sister, Lupe Gutierrez of Houston, her children Patricia Stroobandt and Beth Castillo of Austin, 8 grandchildren, and 7 great grandchildren.
Tillie was born on June 20th, 1918, in Ganado,Texas. She moved to Austin with her family, where she attended Palm Elementary School, Allan Jr. High School, and Austin High School. Tillie married, started a family and took a job Brackenridge Hospital. Early on in her career, Tillie was one of six selected to participate in the first hospital-based nursing program offered at Brackenridge Hospital. She then went on to complete over 30 years of service as a nurse at Brackenridge. Although Tillie was incredibly humble about her time working as a nurse, it was apparent that she was respected and admired by many, as evidenced by frequent recognition by former patients when out and about in the community (her granddaughter teased her about her celebrity status). After retiring from Brackenridge, Tillie took a job at a nursing home in Windsor Park.
Tillie possessed a strong will and kind heart. She was always there to help out in any occasion. She adored her grandchildren and great grandbabies. Those she held dear helped her live a healthy, long and happy life. In fact, the birth of her great-grandchildren over the past 5 years seemed to give her new life, and she miraculously rallied to better health than she had known for several years. Her great-grandchildren absolutely adored her. The first thing they did upon entering the house was to go running, squealing, and laughing down the hall to see Momo, giving her a big hug and kiss.
Family was the most important thing to Tillie, who is affectionately known to her family as Momo. Momo was the family’s matriarch. She held the family together through all the bumps and turns, dips and changes that life’s course throws at a family. Her death leaves behind an irreplaceable void that will be impossible to fill. We shall all try our best to do as Momo’s example teaches us: to place family before conflict, to be strong for our children, and our children’s children who follow us in the years to come.
The kindness of her heart was made even brighter by the vibrancy of her memory. She had the amazing ability to remember the names, positions, and projects however obscure of the vast fabric of her family and friends. This gift continued throughout the entirety of her life and even her last days found her inquiring about specifics and details of people and places pertinent to the people she loved. She was selfless and, in being so, she was one of those rare and incredible people who is loved in proportion to the amount of time spent with her; that is, the longer you knew Tillie, the more you loved her.
Visitation will be on Monday, December 2, 2013 at 7:00pm at the Angel Funeral Home. Funeral Service will be held at 12:00 noon Tuesday, December 3, 2013, in the chapel of the Angel Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Assumption Cemetary. Serving as pallbearers are her son-in-law, Jesse Castillo, Godson, Jeffery George, and grandsons, Steve Salinas, Richard Mireles, David Mireles, and Paul Ramon Alvarez.Read more →
Diana Jean Collins Armitage, 43 years old. Born April 27, 1970 and died November 29, 2013
She is survived by her Mother, Gertraud Brewer, older sister Judi Sharp and her husband Phil along with her big brother Richard Collins.
Diana also leaves behind her 2 year old son Max and his daddy, Chris Barrrios both of whom she loved dearly.
She also left behind numerous heartbroken friends.
Diana was a spitfire, she spoke her mind, she never followed the crowd, she was stubborn as an ox and had a heart full of love. She would give you the shirt off her back and put a roof over your head if you needed it. She was born and raised in Austin, TX but for some reason loved the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We never held it against her. We love her and miss her and look forward to the day we see her again.
