Benita P. Alvarado

February 19, 1960 ~ July 10, 2020 (age 60)


Benita P. Alvarado, 60, passed away on July 10, 2020 . She was born on February 19, 1960 in Kingsville, Texas.

Rest peacefully. Mom… you were the most beautiful loving soul on this earth. Everything we are, we are because of you. We are grateful to have been surrounded by so much love that you gave all of us. You loved us all so much and never failed to express or show it. You were so selfless. You always put everyone before yourself and would light up every room with your presence. Your energy was phenomenal, always smiling and laughing and no matter what, always making others smile and laugh. You were so “cool” like you would say. You are loved, so loved by many. You raised us to be strong like you and although it hurts, you will live on in our hearts and we will remember and forever cherish all of the beautiful memories we had. You taught us everything except how to live without you. We love you so much mom. 

Nothing could have prepared us for this moment. No words could ever express the pain and agony of losing a mother at any age, it is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. No words can convey the amount of love we all have for our mother and how hard this is for everyone. 

Heaven gained a huge piece of all our heart’s. Our beautiful angel gained her wings and is in the best place there can be.  

She is preceded in death by her parents, Patricio Perez, Martha Chavez Perez, and one brother, Alberto Perez.

Benita is survived by her loving husband of 37 years, Victor Alvarado, 5 children, Eliza (David) Castillo, Victor Alvarado Jr. (Selena Rodriguez), Benito Alvarado (Annette Rodriguez), Victoria Alvarado, Patricio Alvarado (Tanika Alvarado), and also 10 grandchildren, Adolfo, Mikaela, David Jr., Daniella, Catalina, Aquiles, Benjamin, Galvino, Hilario, and Gabriella, 4 siblings, Gloria Ramos, Robert Perez, Celia Perez, and Andy Perez.
