Leonor was born July 1, 1925, in Durango, Mexico to Emilio and Benita Rodriguez.

Leonor worked in a curio shop in Juarez, Mexico when a soldier walked in and they fell in love. They married and moved to Amarillo in 1945. She was a homemaker and was a helper to influential  ladies in Amarillo like Doris Roger’s and Dot Line who loved her dearly.

She was well known in the Hispanic community and as a great servant of God to Our Lady of Guadalupe church. She was a Charismatic catholic and loved to praise and worship God, she was always singing!

Everyone knew if they needed a prayer warrior, she was the one to call. She was a grand lady loved by everyone and made an impact for the kingdom of God!

God rewarded her by taking her home in a gracious way. She leaves a great legacy! All glory to God!

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband Manuel Perez, Sr.; and two brothers, Leonzo and Feliciano Rodriguez.
