Obituary for Sandra Longoria

Sandra Longoria
Sandra Yvonne Longoria, went to be with our Lord on July 4, 2017, at her home in Houston, Texas. Yvonne was born at Memorial Hospital in Houston, Texas, on October 23, 1944, to Mr. And Mrs. Thomas Lewis Tew of New Orleans, Louisiana and Pollock, Louisiana.

Yvonne grew up in Garden Oaks in a home her parents commissioned. Most of her lifelong friendships began while attending Garden Oaks Elementary School. While in high school, she was in a bowling league and sang in the choir at Garden Oaks Baptist Church, where she was baptized at the age of 13. She enjoyed sewing party dresses and baking elaborate cakes for her dad's birthdays. She graduated from Waltrip High School in 1962 and went on to Sam Houston State Teachers College.

She relished motherhood and all its adventures. She recently told her children that when her first children, the twins, were born, not only had she grown up an only child, but, "I had never even babysat."

In 1984, Yvonne was diagnosed with breast cancer. The rest of her life was a gift that she celebrated with the greatest enthusiasm her health allowed. Conversations with strangers always included her breast cancer survivor status, and one of her proudest moments occurred this year when a recently diagnosed friend asked her for support and advice.

Yvonne cherished her friends. They sustained her spirit through tough circumstances and gave her great joy in daily communications, occasional activities, and class reunions. She drank each morning's coffee from a mug made over 30 years ago by her best friend's mother. She also loved watching the Astros and the Texans play.

Her children will miss her chicken soup and blueberry muffin deliveries, elementary sense of humor, vocal adoration of all their pursuits and interests, and repertoire of conversational responses, including "Bless your heart," "There's an upside to everything," and "Well...whatever."

Yvonne is survived by her children, Stephen Earl Longoria and his wife, Missy, of Sugar Land, Texas; Stephanie Elaine Peralta and her husband Jesse of Katy, Texas; Jennifer Dawn Longoria-Walker and her husband Joseph of Tomball, Texas; Thomas Creed Longoria and his wife Andra of Houston, Texas; her beloved children by marriage, Wayne Ashworth; Earl Wilson Longoria, Jr.; Laurie Lynette Longoria Elliott; Linda Marie Longoria Vargas; and Stephen Craig Longoria; 27 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; and 2 great-grandchildren on the way.
Yvonne is interred at Rosewood Cemetery in Humble, Texas.
