Eudelia Lala Davis Gutierrez, 84, beloved Mother, was called to her eternal resting place on April 30, 2019. She entered this world on June 14, 1934 in Rio Grande, Texas, born to Harry Davis and Antonia Cruz Miron. A devoted and loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She lived her life to the fullest, embracing every moment, especially with her beloved grandchildren. Always welcoming everybody/anybody into her home with open arms. Lala not only embraced life, she made it enjoyable. Lala understood the meaning of family and that we are stronger together and not apart. Eudelia Lala was the glue that held this family together. It is going to be hard to imagine the family without its Matriarch. So to say we are going to be lost without her is not an understatement. All that is known is that Grandma Lala, Mom, Tia, friend or whatever name that you know her by would want us to stay strong, love each other, care for one another and continue to keep the Family bond strong. Grandma's house is going to feel different from now on. It is going to lack that warmth and that beautiful smile that she would greet everyone with. So it is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to an incredible woman, Eudelia Lala Gutierrez. We love you!
