Sara G. Sandoval, 87, of Kingsville passed away on July 31, 2019 at a Spohn Hospital in Corpus Christi. She was born on Sept. 28, 1931 in Kingsville to Antonio Gonzalez and Sensoria Vela Gonzalez.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Armando Jose Sandoval Jr. on May 29, 2012; and her daughter, Maria Del Carmen Marroquin on Feb. 6,1989.
Sara is survived by her daughters, Sylvia Flores from Corpus Christi and Janie S. Cantu (Ruben) from Corpus Christi; her son, A.J. Sandoval III (Carolyn) from San Antonio; her brother, Tony Gonzalez (Mary Lou) from Kingsville; her two sisters-in-law, Zulema Gonzalez from Harlingen and Antonia Cadena from San Diego; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
She had a loving smile and a loving soul. She was someone who never met a stranger and who had so much love for her family. Oh yeah, and she could yell “BINGO” the loudest when she won.
In her last days, in spite of numerous prayers for healing and the efforts of an excellent team of doctors, medical professionals and modern medicine, it became clear that our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother and dear friend to many was destined to enter God’s Kingdom of Heaven.
In the days ahead our comfort is in God’s hands, our Savior and Redeemer, whose examples of love fills our hearts with beautiful memories of our beloved Sara. May she be wrapped up in God’s love found deep in His everlasting wings, carried and kept safe and cherished now and forever. May that love come down like a dove, shield and protect that one who we love so much.
A public viewing was held Aug. 2, 2019 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a Rosary recited at 7 p.m. at Kingsville Memorial Funeral Home Chapel. A funeral Mass was celebrated at 10 a.m., Aug. 3, 2019 at St. Martin’s Catholic Church in Kingsville.
Sara G. Sandoval will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
