Anita Urias Rico

Our Precious Angel

Our beloved mother, Anita Urias Rico, of Seguin, Texas, passed away on July 24, 2020. She was 97 years young and died of natural causes. She went peacefully and was surrounded by family.

With sadness in our hearts, we must say goodbye to our wonderful mother. Our mother was a very hard-working woman, who did what she had to do in order to take care of her children. She was employed at Holly Farms/Tyson for 25 years, before retirement. She loved to cook, take great care of her home, and enjoyed working in the yard. Anita loved to socialize and attend parties, weddings, and family gatherings. Our mother was a happy and joyous person who had a heart of Gold.

She is preceded in death by her husband of many years, Jose Rico; parents, Pilar and Ysidra Urias; siblings, Maria Urias, Simon Urias, Santiago Urias, Pedro Urias, and Ysidro Urias; grandchildren, Raul Sanchez, Paul Hernandez Jr., and Daniel “Dee” Sanchez. Along the years, we have lost many more family members and many other friends and acquaintances.

She is survived by her children, Josie Sanchez (Danny, Sr.), Alicia Martinez (Bruno, Sr.), Maria Hernandez (Paul, Sr.), Irma Trigo(Peter), Enrique Rico, Jesse “Jay ” Rico (Mary), Luis Rico (Minnie), 13 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, and 2 great great grandchildren.

We were so fortunate to have our mother for many years. She will be tremendously missed. God Bless you, Mom. See you when we see you.
