Mama Trine was a longtime resident of Van Horn, TX. She worked as a housekeeper for many years, was a homemaker, and dedicated her life to raising most of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Mama Trine and Papi Chuy loved to dance in their prime years. If “The Twist” played at any function they attended, she was sure to be on the dance floor with her nephew Beto Becerra. As tiny as she was, she was known to all her family and friends as feisty and expressed herself without fear.

Mama Trine was blessed with 10 grandchildren, 18 grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.

The Rosary is scheduled at 10:00 am., followed by a Mass of Christian burial planned on Friday, September 3, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Van Horn, TX. Frank Hernandez of Van Horn will officiate the services with a burial to follow.
