Esperanza Trevino, born on February 6, 1935, in Alton, Texas, was a beacon of light and joy to all who knew her. Esperanza, whose name fittingly means 'Hope' in Spanish, embodied the adventurous spirit, the resilience of heart and the inspiring dedication to her family and community that marked her 88 years of life. A quote from Helen Keller, "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all," seemed to be Esperanza's guiding philosophy. From her birthplace in Alton, her love for travel and adventure took her to the far corners of the world, yet she always returned to her beloved hometown, where she nurtured her family and served her community.\n\nA spirited homemaker, Esperanza was a constant source of inspiration for those around her. Her resilience shone brightly in her approach to life, as she faced the challenges of widowhood and the loss of her loved ones with grace and strength. She was a person who truly understood the meaning of love and dedication. Her home was not only a place of residence but a sanctuary of warmth and affection for her family and friends. She was preceded in death by her father, Jesus Rosales, her mother, Maria Alaniz, her husband, Jesus Trevino, her children, Rita Vega and Rene Trevino, and her granddaughter Raquel Vega. She is survived by 6 children, Jose, Julia, Estela, Efrain, Fernando and Beatriz, 11 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and 8 great, great grandchildren. All who inherited Esperanza's strong spirit and zest for life.\n\nIn her 70s and 80s Esperanza zip lined, hiked the Grand Canyon, soaked in the sand and waves of South Miami Beach and South Padre Island, went horseback riding in Oklahoma, enjoyed the wine tour in Napa Valley, danced with Woody at Disney World, played her luck in Vegas, and enjoyed many, many more adventures with her kids, and grand to great, great grandkids.\n\nPublic visitation for Esperanza Trevino will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2023, at 4:00 pm CDT at the Brown Family Funeral Home, located at 701 East Interstate Highway 2, Mission, Texas, 78572.
