Blanca Diana Flores, 78, of Lubbock who loved to be called Mama and Grandma departed her loving family on June 16, 2022.
Blanca was born January 18, 1944 in McAllen, Texas and was lovingly raised by her paternal grandparents. She met the love of her life, Erasmo Flores in 1959 and the two were happily married on February 9, 1963. They raised their three beloved children, Javier, Ruth, Monica Carolina and their grandchildren, Yvette, Atiana and Harlow. Blanca never met a stranger; her signature red-lipped smile always lit up the room. Her hands were never idle as she was always cooking for her loved ones and hugging those around her that needed comfort. She also shared her name, Grandma, to the little ones she cared for in her home. She was a sympathetic listener and would often call her friends and family to let them know she was thinking of them. She was a great lover of people. She enjoyed her quality time with her husband, watching their favorite TV shows and sports, listening to music and the occasional serenade from Erasmo.
Blanca is survived by her husband, Erasmo Flores of Lubbock, her son Javier Flores of Dallas, daughters Ruth (Mike) Peterson and Monica (Vincent) Davis of Lubbock, brother Pablo (Maria) Garza of Lubbock, sister Enedina (Frank) Flores of Lubbock, five grandchildren, Yvette (Kerry) Bradford, Naomi Amber Flores, Angelica Renee Camacho, Atiana Danielle Adame, Harlow Raine Davis and four great grandchildren. She was reunited in heaven with her parents, her Tia Enedina Valadez and her sister Aida Estrada.
