Petra Sandoval Munguia

SAN BENITO—Petra Sandoval Munguia, 79, passed away at home in her sleep in El Ranchito, TX on May 7, 2016. Petra Munguia (2)She was born in Rancho La Rosita on July 30, 1936. She was a Eucharistic Minister, Liturgical Reader, Sacristan and active member of St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church in El Ranchito, Texas. She was employed by Esparza & Zepeda Produce Packer and always drove to work with her special group of girl friends. She was very active with her grandchildrens’ extra curricular activities from ballet to marching band, always making sure they were on time. She helped many that were recovering from surgeries or on their final moments leading them into the light so they could be reunited with the Lord.
Gardening, collecting rocks and bells from her trips around the world were some of her biggest hobbies. Her strong and fiesty character was a reflection of the strength with which she loved others. She was Petra until the end.
