The Legacy of Mrs. Aguilar
Mrs. Maria Jesus Ramires Aguilar, a longtime resident of Sulphur Springs, passed away on August 6, 2018 in Mexico while on a “trip of a lifetime” vacation to Arizona, California and her home in Cananea, Sonora Mexico. She was visiting siblings and family members, some whom she had not seen in many years. Maria’s life began in the beautiful Sonoran mountains of Mexico, specifically, the village of Bacadehuachi. She was adopted and raised in Villa Hidalgo, Sonora Mexico and then moved to Agua Prieta, Sonora. It was there she met and married the love of her life, Manuel Altamirano Aguilar on August the 15th 1954 in Agua Prieta Sonora. On June 22, 1969 she and her family arrived in Sulphur Springs. Maria made a lifetime of memories and has left an imprint on the city. Her legacy will live on within her natural family as well as the many lives which she impacted. The gracious ways of Maria left you feeling like a part of her family. Items displayed during her rites were from a family lifetime collection.
