Mary Alice Quinn September 13, 1943-January 24, 2020 Our loving and strong mother passed on to eternal life on January 24, 2020 after suffering from liver cancer after 12 long years. She fought her battle with courage, grace, and faith in God. Our hearts are heavy, but we are happy she is in no more pain. Mary Alice was born in San Antonio on September 13, 1943 to Zeferino and Manuela Menchaca. She was the sixth born into a family of thirteen children. Mary Alice loved gardening. She was known for her green thumb and loved watching her roses and plants blossom. Above ALL, she loved her family with a passion. She raised her brothers, sisters, nieces nephews, her children, and grandchildren. She was full of wisdom and advice. Mary Alice didn’t grow up with much, but she was always willing to help anyone in need. She always put for her children before herself. Her family never went without, even if that meant that she had to work two jobs. Mary Alice worked as a dispatcher for the police department in Floresville. After moving to Fairfield in 1976, she worked as a med aid at Fairfield Nursing Home for many years. Mary Alice then went to work at Lott Insurance Agency as a secretary, and retired from there to spend more time with her grandchildren. Mary Alice did go back to work years later as a receptionist at the local emergency room, all while having to battle cancer. Mary Alice is survived by her four daughters, Theresa Farris and husband Donnie, Carrie Pyles and husband Rick, Patty Spiller and husband Ronny Wayne, Cinnamon Archibald, and her two son’s Johnny Bermudez and wife Melissa, adopted son Valentin Azuza and wife Linda.
