Lisa Gonzales, age 53 of Poteet, passed away in Jourdanton on Tuesday, April 6, 2021. She was born in Jourdanton, on Thursday, July 27, 1967 to Juan M. and Maria Elena (Orta) Gonzales.

Lisa had a smile that would light up the room, and her laughter was contagious. She was always the life of the party and everyone one was always welcomed in her home. Although she never had any children of her own: she was a mother to so many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Her love was unending for all her babies and they will miss their Nina dearly.

Lisa had a heart of gold. Her selfless generosity was worth more than any monetary value. She was always sharing her caring love. Lisa loved to care for “her boys”, her Laina, and all her nieces and nephews. “They were all hers.”

Lisa is survived by her father, Juan M. Gonzales; siblings, Rita Alaniz, Ruth Martinez, and Juan Diego Gonzales, and nieces and nephews, Valerie Flores, Rudy Carrasco and wife Brenda, Vanessa Carrasco, Jack Carrasco and wife Jessica, Veronica Lambardia and husband Charles, and Jeremy Gonzales. She is also survived by numerous Godchildren, great-nieces and great-nephews.



Lisa was preceded in death by her mother, Maria Elena Gonzales; sister, Mary Jane Sandoval, and nephew, John Martin Alaniz.
