March 6, 1918 - July 24, 2017
Our Mother Dolores Nunez Alaniz entered into eternal rest on July 24, 2017 at Genesis Briarcliff Nursing Home in McAllen, Texas. She was born to General Fidel Nunez and Felicitas Espinoza on March 6, 1918 in General Teran, Nuevo Leon, Mexico and was brought to the United States as a very young child. She lived in McAllen all her life and attended McAllen High School where she was a cheerleader and a member of the National Honor Society. Dolores was a woman of great faith, intelligence, pride and strength. The eldest of her siblings, she became the matriarch of her family and proudly carried the responsibilities that came along with that role. Never allowing the hardships that come along in life to bring her down, she worked very hard to provide for her entire family while always maintaining a positive attitude and always willing to lend a helping hand. Dolores joins her parents in heaven and her step-father, Jesus Zavala; her husband, Guadalupe Alaniz and their infant son; her brothers, David Zavala and Enrique Zavala; her sister, Rafaela Zavala Soto; her grandchildren, Edgar Ballesteros, Alejandra Arenas and Victor Manuel Parlatto and her many beloved friends. Left to cherish her memory are her four daughters, Alicia Saldivar, Dolores (Sergio) Velasquez, Conception Telles and Graciela (Rafael) Arenas; two brothers, Cristobal and Arnulfo Zavala; eleven grandchildren; seventeen great grandchildren; one great great grandson; and many nieces and nephews. Visitation will be held on Friday, July 28, 2017 from 3-8 PM with a Prayer Service starting at 7 PM. Funeral service will be on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 10 AM at Iglesia Biblica Cristiana with burial to follow at Roselawn Cemetery.
