Aurora "Floritas" (Moreno) Munoz

April 22, 1930 ~ June 11, 2022 (age 92)

Obituary

Our dear sweet Aurora 'Floritas' Munoz, at the age of 92, passed away June 11, 2022; with her family by her side. She was a humble and kind person, who was there when you needed her. She had many friends and was well-loved by her brothers and sisters in the faith. Her favorite pet Maggie loved her too.

Aurora was born, to the late Gilberto and Rosario Moreno, on April 22, 1930, in Los Angeles, CA. She was one of eight children. Aurora lived in Los Angeles, for 34 years, before moving to Calexico, CA. She lived briefly in the San Joaquin Valley before making Kilgore her home.

During her years in LA she had ten children, five boys and five girls. Of the family, four have preceded her, Paul, Gilbert, Frances 'Frenchie', and Mike.

She is survived by Norman and Viola both from Texas; Jack, Barbara, Audrey and Rachel, all from California; younger sister, Aida; twenty-three grandchildren, a host of great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and other relatives.

At the age of 13 Aurora got her first job making tortillas; they were the best tortillas in the world, you could not eat just one! To help support her family, she continued working in the restaurant business learning to cook Italian, Greek, and Chinese dishes. In addition to working in the restaurants, she labored working hard in the fields.

Aurora had a love for many things; a love for all who belonged to her, a love for cooking, a love for sweets, but most of all a love for Jehovah God. She symbolized her dedicated by water baptism in 1965 in Phoeniz, AZ. Aurora served in the field ministry as a pioneer, going door to door, doing public witnessing and conducting bible studies.

She loved going to the assemblies, even if it meant traveling over mountains, driving through deserts, or battling freeway traffic. Her 'Bat Mobiles' never let her down, or better yet she was living on a prayer, and Jehovah blessed her efforts.

Thanks to Jehovah she never missed a Memorial of Christ' death, not even this year!

As a single parent, she faced many challenges, but always approached each one with a positive, 'can do' attitude. She always relied on Jehovah. On one occasion her faith was severely tested when she refused to allow her daughter Frenchie to be given a blood transfusion and fought the hospital's request for a court order to force the transfusion. But with Jehovah's help, she prevailed. Aurora was determined to be faithful to the end, and she was!

Aurora, our mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend, will be dearly missed but forever remembered and loved by everyone who she has graciously touched. She is now resting in Jehovah's memory, not as a sick weakened person, but as a strong healthy woman."...friends of our God, though they may pass away, will never be forsaken. All those asleep who in God's memory stay, from death he will awaken. Then we will come to see all that life can be in Paradise eternally.'

Until we meet again...we love you.

A memorial will be held in both English and Spanish on Saturday June 25th at 3:00pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses located at 2120 Alpine Street, Longview, Texas 75601. Also, a ZOOM meeting connection will be available for those unable to attend.
