Maria B. Mote, 81, of Amarillo, Texas went to be with her Lord and Savior surrounded by her family on February 8, 2022, in Amarillo.
Maria was born February 12, 1940, to Fran Quilino and Enniqueto Perez in Reynosa, Mexico. She married Richard E. Mote in 1956, where they traveled the world while Richard served in the U.S. Air Force. Of all their travels, she loved Germany the most. They settled here in Amarillo after Richard was stationed at the base in the late 60’s. Maria loved being in her yard taking care of her roses, occasional garden and feeding the birds. She was a great homemaker, grandmother and an amazing cook. She always had sweets set out for the kids to enjoy. Maria’s greatest joys were taking care of her grandkids after school, the holidays and family gatherings. Maria has a sweet soul and will be greatly missed.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Richard Mote.
Those left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Maria A. Mote and her husband David Aragon, and Nita M. Mote; her grandchildren, Lorne Mote, Shyla Aragon, Ashleigh Mote, Kasandra Aragon, Brittany Shaffer, Eternity Calhoun and Marzett Calhoun, and her great-grandchildren, Sire and Aviya.
Maria mote was a great friend to me. Every Thanksgiving since 1995 she would make me a pecan pie and she would make me another pecan pie for Christmas. Between Thanksgiving and New Year she would make me a ham sandwich to take with me to work and she always made sure that she has a big red soda for me.
I’ll miss her a lot there is an empty feeling in my heart. Maria may you rest in peace in the comfort of our Lord. You will not be forgotten my friend and I’ll see you down the road Maria. Peace in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ Amen 🙏🙏❤
