Mary S. Segovia, 52, of Prosser passed away peacefully on Wednesday, July 28, 2010 surrounded by her children, granddaughter and siblings in Post Falls, Idaho.
She was born Sept. 29, 1957 in Prosser to Gilberto and Dominga Saenz.
Mary was full of determination and had a strong focus in life. She was very proud of both of her children and her granddaughter.
She was always full of joy and laughter and enjoyed running, dancing, Tejano music, cooking, and being surrounded by family.
Mary worked for the Mabton School District as a teacher's assistant for 16 years and had recently been inspired to return to school to become a certified phlebotomist.
Mary is survived by her daughter, Crystal Segovia; her son, Ramiro Segovia Jr.; granddaughter Kaylani Marie Jasso; siblings, Felecita Rocha, Gilbert (Miroslava) Saenz, Pete Saenz, Delia (Joe) Gonzales, Mario (Mary) Saenz, Daniel Saenz, Alex Saenz, Rudy (Linda) Saenz, and Rebecca (Albert) Garcia; and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends in the community.
Mary will be missed by the many whose lives she touched. We know that she is in heaven with the angels resting in comfort and peace.
Memorial services were held today, Aug. 2, 2010, at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Grandview, with burial at Mabton Cemetery.
