We are sad to announce the passing of Esmeralda M. Avila of San Benito, TX. She passed at the age of 61 on February 11, 2024. She was dearly beloved by all her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents Ruben & Aurelia Mancillas, sister Graciela Mancillas. She is survived by her husband, Joseph Petruska. Her siblings Guadalupe (Yolanda) Mancillas, Reyes (Martha) Mancillas, Virginia Mancillas. Her children Steven Avila Jr., Ruben Joshua Avila. Her Grandchildren Ruben Alfonso Avila, Heaven Amanda Martinez, and Grace Dixie Avila. Her beloved nieces and nephew. She will be missed by all that knew her.
