July 6, 2013

Maria Concepcion Yañez (Concha) was called to join all the Angels and Saints in the Heavens above on July 2, 2013. Concha was born Dec. 8, 1923, in Huejotitan Chihuahua, Mexico, to Severiano and Faustina Yañez.

Concha lived in Big Spring from 1958 to 2000 until she retired and moved to the Juarez/El Paso area. She had many children in Big Spring under her care throughout the years. She lived with Moses, Evelyn and the Flores family until all the children were grown. She enabled the household to run smoothly by taking care of the children, cooking and housekeeping. She was our mentor, taught us life lessons, and was a very talented person. Not only did she teach us many prayers, she taught us to cook, sew, hand embroidery, crochet and to make quilts. A few of her delicious specialties were tamales, gorditas and empanadas.
In addition to the Flores family, she was employed as a dishwasher for Alberto’s for many years.

She was a firm believer in natural herbal remedies. She cured herself with herbal teas and never had to go to the doctor until she was in her 80s.

She was a very spiritual person and dedicated to her Catholic faith. She prayed a daily rosary and prayers from her prayer book.

She is survived by a brother, several nieces and nephews, and her children she raised and cared for including Richard Flores of Big Spring, Mary Ann Leal of Big Spring, Terry Martinez of Fort Worth, Martha E Flores of Los Angeles, Calif., Samantha Flores of Big Spring, Josh Flores of Houston, Natalie Alba of Manor, Michael Leal of Lubbock and Gabriel Leal of Big Spring.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers and sister, her Big Spring family, Moses Flores Sr; Evelyn Flores and Moses Flores Jr.

Visitation was to be held from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, July 6, 2013, with a prayer service at 6:30 p.m. at Mr. Carmel Funeral Home in El Paso.
