Margaret Ann Espinoza Alvarez, of Taylor, passed away Wednesday, July 10, 2019 at the age of 76 peacefully in her home.

Margaret was born to Samuel and Clemencia Espinoza Jan. 29, 1943 in Taylor. She grew up as the only daughter in a house filled with five brothers and attended Saint Mary’s High School. In 1990, she met the love of her life, Urvano Perez, and lived out her years with him. She recently retired from Baylor Scott and White Hospital after over 20 years of service. She loved her coworkers and was overwhelmed by the love, support and generosity they showed her. She enjoyed playing her lotto numbers and scratch offs. She also loved the most being around her family and making sure everyone was fed. They most loved her homemade enchiladas. You would never see her without her hair and nails done. She always walked with grace and dignity and was known for her unique humor.

Margaret is survived by her by her daughters, Arlene Alderete, Melissa Martinez and Linda Mendoza; sons, Christopher Trevino and Victor Perez; 14 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

A visitation was held Friday July 12, at 6 p.m. and rosary at 7 p.m. at Providence Funeral Home. A memorial mass will take place Saturday, July 13, at 1 p.m. at Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylor.
