Clemencia moved to Texas in 1997 and developed a love and pride for this country. Above all things, her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ was priority. Clemencia was a true prayer warrior and faced every battle in life on her knees. She found much joy and peace studying her Bible and strengthening her relationship with God every day. Her inner light shone so bright that when she was around others, life was breathed into a room. A homemaker by trade, Clemencia cared for and nurtured her family making sure they had everything they needed. Her children were one of her greatest joys and the time they spent together was filled with happiness and the warmest memories. She loved being in the kitchen and cooking for family and friends. You also could find her outdoors working in her garden and with her animals. Being in fellowship with her church family at Center First United Pentecostal Church was the highlight of her week. Clemencia was a genuine, Christian woman whose presence will be deeply missed.
Clemencia is survived by her sons, Homero Castro of Center and Juan Edgar Castro of Center; mother, Nabora Perez; sisters, Juana Perez, Aurora Perez, Graciela Perez and Esperanza Perez; brothers, Benjamin Perez, David Perez, Jose Perez, Merejildo Perez, Fidencio Perez and Faustino Perez.
She is preceded in death by her father, Benjamin Perez and brother, Alberto Perez.
