A few years later, she moved to Port Isabel, TX with her brother and sister-in-law to help care for her mother, nieces and nephews for several years, but returned to Wichita Falls, where she made her home these last 30+ years. For the last 4 years, Isabel enjoyed the company of her beloved fur-baby and loyal friend, Chiquita, her miniature Chihuahua. Isabel was a strong, independent, religious, caring woman. She loved God, shared his word and always tried to lead her loved ones back to the church, to know God and pray. She was a devout Catholic, a member of Cursillo, a mission volunteer, a Guadalupana, and a volunteer in her church community. She was a lifetime-learner and enjoyed taking English classes, attending bible study, dance classes, and others; she loved dancing. One of her proudest moments was becoming a Citizen of the United States of America after applying and studying for the test with the help of her church community.
