MISSION – Ofelia “Felita” de Rueda, as she was endearingly called by her nieces, and nephews; passed away on January 20, 2018 at the age of 87 at Mission Regional Medical Center surrounded by her family. Felita was a charismatic woman inside and out, she believed in the importance of service to others and was always there to offer assistance to those in need. Our family was truly blessed to have been part of her life. She always had this quick wit about her that made us laugh. Felita worked for CR Anthony for 25 years; there she made hundreds of friends through her caring and loving manner of treating her customers. Felita is survived by her grandchildren, Roxanne, Robert de Rueda III, and Yvette Cavazos, her sister Esperanza L. (Celestino) Sandoval, and numerous nieces and nephews all of Mission. She is preceded in death by her parents Pablo (Delfina) Lopez, her husband Robert de Rueda Sr., her daughter Gloria, son Robert de Rueda Jr. , sisters Eva Ocañas, Lupita Ramirez, Oralia Lopez, and a brother Raul Lopez Sr. A visitation will be held today, Monday, January 18, 2018 from 2pm to 9pm with a Holy Rosary at 7pm at Ric Brown Family Funeral Home Chapel in Mission.
