Paz Jurado

September 6, 1935 — November 29, 2023

Marfa, Texas

Paz Jurado was called by our Lord on Wednesday, November 29, 2023 at the age of 88 years.

Paz was a wife, a mother, a sister, an aunt, a friend, and provider to her grandchildren. She worked as a home healthcare provider. Paz was a long-time member of the St. Mary’s Catholic Church where she served as a member of the church choir, and volunteered for many church activities and services. 

Paz’s home was always the place for family gatherings. She lived for her children, there was not anything that she would not do for them. She loved to sing and dance. She was known for her 
orange cakes and banana bread. There was not a dessert she did not love. At one point in her life, she cared for all her grandchildren while her children worked. She always welcomed her grandchildren with open arms. She was a teacher, confidant, a friend, and a recliner companion while watching novellas but above all she was a loving mother. She was much loved and will be missed. She always said, “No, don’t say goodbye, it’s always see you later.”

Paz was born in Marfa, Texas to Bartolo and Concha Villanueva on September 6, 1935. Paz married the love of her life, Esteban Jurado; they were married for 70 years. Together they had 6 children,  Javier Jurado (Terry), Delia Jurado-Martinez, Danny Jurado (Deceased), Virginia Pallarez (Eddie), David Jurado (Vanessa), and Rachel Cardenas (Johnny).

numerous nieces and nephews.
