Maria “Sana” Herrera was called Home to the Lord on December 8, 2022, at the age of 69. She was born on June 8, 1953, in San Antonio, Texas to Maria Teresa (Gonzalez) and Secundino Mireles Sr.
Maria was the best Momo in the world. Her life was her family. Her husband, her children, and her grandchildren. She enjoyed her Spurs, Cowboys, crossword puzzles, garage sales, and family gatherings. Maria was the most selfless women inside and out. She never judged; she never criticized you. She was just there, ALWAYS there. She loved a full house, even though she never said this, we know she did. Everyone had a home at her house, and you always woke up to a hot meal. She was the greatest mother, grandmother, wife, sister, and friend anyone could ask for. She will be missed dearly.
