Maria Francisca Peña, affectionately known as Frances, of Laredo, Texas, left this earth on Monday morning, February 13, 2017. Frances was born in Laredo, Texas on June 18, 1951 and although she would later move to Dallas, Texas she would always consider Laredo home. She loved unconditionally and always had the most infectious smile and vibrant personality. She loved traveling to the casino to play slot machines, spending time with her sisters, calling loved ones to sing them Happy Birthday, making sure you knew what you got for Christmas before you opened the gift and most importantly – living for her family. A beloved and generous daughter, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother and godmother, Frances always put her family first.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Juan M. and Estella Puente; sister, Mary Alice Puente and her brother, Julio Puente.
She is survived by her loving and caring children Jennifer Puente (Dallas, Texas) and Raul Peña III (San Antonio, Texas); grandchildren, Jazmyn and Benjamin; devoted sisters, Beatriz Lopez and her husband, Javier Lopez (Laredo, Texas), Sylvia Sanchez and her husband, Manuel Villa (Dallas, Texas), Juanita Puente (McKinney, Texas), Lydia Rogerio & her husband, Jesse Rogerio (Laredo, Texas); brothers Roy Puente (Garland, Texas), Juan Puente (Garland, Texas), Reymundo Puente (Mesquite, Texas) as well as several nieces and nephews.
The service for Frances Peña will be held on Friday, February 17, 2017 at 10:00 am in the Brooks Family Chapel at North Dallas Funeral Home located at 2710 Valley View Lane Dallas, Texas 75234.
