Alpine, Texas

Catalina Urquietta Bermudez, age 92 years old of Alpine, Texas passed away at Focused Care in Fort Stockton, Texas on March 30, 2023.

Catalina Urquietta Bermudez was born on May 1, 1930 to Juan and Mauricia Urquietta in Terlingua, Texas. She attended Centennial School in Alpine, Texas. She married Angel Moralez Bermudez on June 29, 1958. They were married for 42 years. They have one son Martin Urquietta Bermudez born on November 28, 1965.  Martin served in the United States Air Force for 20 years, from October 18, 1993 to October 31, 2013. Martin attained the Rank of technical sergeant and retired at Langley Air Force Base in October 2013.

After marrying Angel, they embarked on their military life that took them to Alabama throughout Texas, New York City, Germany, Oklahoma, then Virginia where SP5 Angel Bermudez retired in December 1975.

Highlights of her life as a military wife include living in NYC for 3 years while SP5 Bermudez was stationed at Fort Hamilton Army Base. Catalina cherished her life in NYC and enjoyed attending the World's Fair in 1965. While living in Kaiserslautern, Germany, she enjoyed attending festivals, castle tours, and visiting petting zoos.

Upon returning to Alpine after her military life, she began working with prominent families in the community as housekeeper/caretaker. These families included Carolyn and Grady Melon, Carlos and Faye Dunn, and Keith and Jeanette Morrow. These familial bonds resulted in a close friendship with Linda Harris, who is also grieving the loss of Catalina, whom she considered a sister.
