Amelia Morales

On the afternoon of August 20, 2022, Amelia Z. Morales of Corpus Christi celebrated her final earthly birthday and joined her Lord and God for her first heavenly birthday at the age of 74. She was surrounded by family for her final breath.

Amelia was born to Alfredo and Anita Zamora in 1948 in Three Rivers, TX but called Bishop, TX her home for 30 years. With a deep rooted passion for the well being of others, she began going to nursing school but soon learned that her heart was directed, by God's hand, into childcare, a path she walked for the next 15 years.  In 1971 she married the love of her life, Jose Morales who preceded her in death only two years later, six months after their baby girl, Leticia, was born. By God's good graces Amelia would later be blessed and Leticia joined by two baby girls Christina and Mayra.

Amelia, also affectionately known as "Mae", "Mae Mae" to her grandbabies, was a "Jill" of all trades, from baking the best treats every holiday and crocheting baby blankets for every new little one joining the family to enjoying the powerful purr of a motorcycle as the wind whipped through her hair and even on occasion playing in the rain but best known for her sassy shutterbug shots of family and friends.  She captured only the best moments. The ones that always made you grin from ear to ear. The sweetest deepest heart and forget "firecracker", she was the whole stick of TNT. The best of two worlds.  She was just Magic.

Amelia is preceded in death by her parents Alfredo and Anita Zamora and her husband Jose Morales.

She is survived by her daughters Leticia Morales, Christina Morales-Villarreal (Emilio), Mayra Morales-Pesina (Mathurin), grandchildren Alistair and Artemis. Her loving devoted companion of 17 years, her chihuahua Charlie. Her siblings Alfredo Zamora Jr. (Alma), Alejos Zamora (Marcela), Aida Gonzales, Armando Zamora (Yolanda), Arnulfo Zamora (Carmen), and several nieces and nephews.

The family will receive condolences on Tuesday, August 23, 2022, from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM at Turcotte Piper Mortuary; with a Holy Rosary to be recited at 7:00 PM.  A funeral mass will be on Wednesday, August 24, 2022, at 10:00 AM at St. James Catholic Church in Bishop. Services will conclude that morning.
