Olivia Resendiz, 79, of San Angelo went to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 13, 2018 after a courageous battle with cancer. Olivia was born July 11, 1938 in Johnson City, Texas to Antonio and Petra Romero Gonzales. She married the love of her life, Elpidio Nieto Resendiz on February 6, 1968 in Tulia, Texas and they shared 50 wonderful years of marriage together. Olivia was a loving daughter, sister, wife and mother who devoted her life to her family. She worked as a custodian at Tulia Independent School District for 22 years before retiring. In her spare time, she enjoyed being at home and with her family and drawing and taking pictures of anything and everything. Olivia also loved playing bingo and the lottery, cooking, chewing bubble gum and talking on the phone for hours with her sister Elizabeth. She also loved joking around with everyone and being very vociferous. However, her main passion was just being at home with her family. Olivia's life and love will remain in our hearts forever and we will dearly miss her. She was preceded in death by her parents and her sister Elizabeth Alvarado. Olivia is survived by her husband, Elpidio N. Resendeiz, of San Angelo; her Daughter, Elvira Jhaliesann Pedro-Bartolo, of San Angelo; her brothers, Adam Gonzalez, of Tulia, TX., and Edward Gonzales, of San Angelo; her sister, Tomasa Huerta, of Brady, TX; and numerous nieces and nephews. Olivia requested that no services be held in her honor; just remember her fondly in your memories.
