Petra “Pat” V. Hurtado
Our beloved mother, Petra “Pat” V. Hurtado passed away on January 17, 2021 at the age of 72. She was born in Fentress, Texas, as the middle child to the late Blas and Frances Valdez.
Pat was a home caregiver all of her life. She found joy in helping others and always enjoyed good music and dancing. Some would say, she was the life of the party.
