Statement of Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS, regarding the death of Mary Jimenez

I was deeply saddened upon hearing of the death of Mary Jimenez on Tuesday. Since my arrival in San Antonio, one of my favorite yearly traditions has been attending the Raul Jimenez Thanksgiving Dinner at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center and greeting Mary and Patricia, along with the volunteers and attendees. This wonderful event begun by Raul and Mary has fed hundreds of thousands of individuals with delicious food, and Mary has remained intimately involved with this gathering each year, beautifully carrying on the legacy of her beloved husband Raul, and assisted mightily by loving daughter Patricia. The Jimenez family, and the city itself are mourning this great loss. We are with Patricia to assist her in continuing this great work, as Mary enjoys her heavenly rest. “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
