Irene Fernandez, 79, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020 in Laredo, Texas.
Our mother was selfless, giving, full of love and laughter. The Neocatechumenal was a major part of her life and she devoted her life to teaching us her knowledge and to love God as he loves us. She brought us all together with her love and warmth, and that’s what we’ll cherish the most.
