Mary Alice Pena

Corsicana —

Mary Alice Pena, 70, passed away Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012, at a local hospital.

Mary Alice was born on Feb. 24, 1942, in Fort Worth and graduated from Paschal High School in 1961. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt, who will be sorely missed.

Her service and commitment to Habitat for Humanity, Hispanic Women's Network of Texas, Meals-on-Wheels, PTA and the Presbyterian Night Shelter helped complete the lives of others and her own.

Survivors include her husband of 50 years, Arturo; daughters, Elisabeth Garza, Astrid Atkinson (Tim); sons, Robert Paul (Raquel), John Eric (Celia); grandchildren, Nicole, Christina, Benjamin, Angelica, Noah, Ava, Sofia and Serena; brother, Robert (Elsa); sister, Rachel (Amado); and many cousins, nephews, nieces and her faithful companion, Lady J.
