Memories Timeline


  1. Our beloved Olivia will remain in our hearts forever. Our prayers and symphaty go out to her entire family. She was a part of our lives as well. A compassionate soul, an amazing woman. She will b dearly missed by all who knew her. She made a great impact on all our lives. Her legacy lives on with wonderful memories that we who have stayed will always remember. A trememdous grandmother, wife and mother. Rest in peace my sweet angel.

  2. Olivia was part of our family for over twenty years. She cared for our “Mamaw” at the San Antonio Street house until Mamaw passed. She was the ‘bachelor pad’ housekeeper there for Matt until he married Kerri in 2004. She embraced our children Brett, Pierce, Cannen, Catcher and Baker as her own. Olivia was with us through thick and thin. She witnessed our successes and failures, and cried and laughed with us. She was humble, funny, and always respectful of others and the homes she cherished. She took great pride in her work, her own family and ours. We miss her terribly already. Our children learned many lessons from her and will again as we grieve with them over losing her, but celebrate knowing God has her now. Thank you for sharing her. We love her so much!

  3. She will be greatly missed. She was like a second mom to me. I always looked forward to visiting her and the whole family during the summer. Great memories that I will cherish forever.

  4. Olivia was very precious to the Arredondo family in Kingsville. She was a Godmother for many of us from births to weddings. She gave us advice on marriage and child rearing. Our parents and Olivia and Tacho spend endless hours around the kitchen table talking and laughing. We will miss you always.

  5. To the Family of Olivia, I am so sorry for your loss! I pray our Heavenly Father give you the peace and comfort that only He can give.

  6. Dear Hernandez Family, may you find peace, strength and comfort during this difficult time. Olivia touched many lives including mine. I will always remember sitting outside on the porch at your house on central st. talking and laughing with Olivia. She will be deeply missed. Tacho, Einstein, Cheech, Liliana and Mandy, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

  7. My deepest sympathy to your family on the passing of your beautiful mom. Growing up nearby, I remember her as always smiling and being so friendly. My prayers for comfort during this very difficult time to each of you, God bless! Linda

  8. Olivia will be greatly missed. Her laughter, good sense of humor and her love for her family I will never forget. I have many fond memories of her. On my wedding day she gave me great advice. She was the only one that noticed something was on my mind. As I was almost done getting dressed she said…….it is never to late. I have used her advice to help me not be afraid of what life has to offer regardless of the circumstances.

  9. In life I never had a chance to thank Mrs. Hernandez for welcoming me to her family. From day one she accepted me, flaws and all. She never judged me and always made me feel like a special part of her family. Her kindness and warm spirit wasn’t just reserved for a few, as I witnessed for myself on many an occasion, all who crossed her path felt and received it in abundance. Thank you Olivia and may you rest in peace.

  10. This woman is the epitome of unconditional love. I had the privilege of being loved and cared for by this beautiful person named Olivia. Our talks were always filled with laughter and occasionally a tear or two. She was the sweetheart that my kids were privileged to call grandma “lee-le.” She was an exceptional woman that taught me what it means to be humble. I will always carry her love with me. <3 I will be forever grateful for all the countless times she was there for me and all the times she made me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry. There wasn't anything I could ask her for that she wouldn't do. She was the sunshine on my rainy day plenty of times...I love her and I miss her very much. May her heart rejoice with our heavenly father!

  11. I would like to extend my most sincere condolences for the Hernandez Family in the passing of their family member Olivia Hernandez. Olivia was a fine lady! She was always laughing and smiling! I will most remember her for her kind smile and upbeat attitude! I know she would like everyone to be happy, not sad, because as i knew Olivia, she is certainly dancing right now! God just got another beautiful Angel in his beautiful heavens.

  12. Olivia had a beautiful spirit and always so nice to our family. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. Rhonda Torres Perez

  13. I don’t know where to even began how much I love this beautiful woman. Olivia was always there for me and for that I am grateful. She knew I never grew up with a mother and we would talk about why I never called my own mother “mom”. I never called any women in my life mom. I can not stop thinking of her humbleness, how much she love my baby and all her grandchildren, how she always welcomed everyone into the family.. I will NEVER forget this amazing woman who had an impact on a lot of people. Rest in peace our sweet angel. love you so much….MOM.
