She was born on July 29, 1948 in Matamoros, Mexico to her late parents Jesus Rosas Gongora and Hortencia Del Fierro.
Hortencia was a loving mother and homemaker who loved her family with all her heart. She had a great sense of humor and always played little pranks on the grand kids. She enjoyed family gatherings, cooking, music, and dancing. She was always the life of the party. She enjoyed traveling with her husband of 45 years to Mexico to see family and friends.
Hortencia was known to be meticulous. She celebrated every occasion, but she especially enjoyed celebrating everyone's birthday.
She was such a giving person. Everyone knew that her trademark was her red lipstick!
Hortencia was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind nothing but beautiful memories. She will be missed by all that knew her, but her memory will live on. As her health declined, she often repeated "Tengan Fe" and "Al mal tiempo buena cara"
