Irene Gonzalez, age 53, passed away of natural causes on October 28, 2019 in San Antonio, Texas. Irene was born in Moses Lake to Jose and Maria Luisa Gonzalez on October 15, 1966. She was raised in Moses Lake and relocated to San Antonio soon after graduation and it was there she decided to make her home. She was employed at the HEB for 20+ years and had developed close relationships with her co-workers who were her family away from home. Irene enjoyed taking road trips and would drive from San Antonio to Crystal City, Corpus Christi or Moses Lake to visit her family. She enjoyed family adventures while camping out at the Sun Lakes, Bbq’s and late night sessions at our brother Jr’s or parents home. We looked forward to her visits because we would always reminisce about the days gone by, discuss our futures and there was endless joy and laughter. One could not measure the love and respect she had for her family and that which we had for her. Irene was an amazing daughter, sister, parent and friend. Many will remember her by her contagious laughter and her ability to love unconditionally. She touched many people’s lives, she was admired and loved by many. Irene was preceded in death by her infant brother Alejandro Gonzalez and grandmother Maria Villareal de Gonzalez. She was survived by her children Enrique, Veronica and Maribel Rodriguez, parents Jose and Maria Luisa Gonzalez, brother Jose Gonzalez Jr. (Ida), sisters Brenda Gonzalez, Beatriz Hernandez (Robert), Elizabeth Moreno (Jose) and numerous nieces and nephews.
