Lilia lived her life without fear, with lots of hope, and even more love. She shared that with everyone she met.

This memorial website was created in memory of my beautiful wife, Lilia Trevino, 52, born on March 28, 1962 and passed away on October 24, 2014. We will love and miss her dearly forever.  She is survived by her son Moses Ramirez and Husband Jesse Ramirez, mother Lydia Trevino, brother Joe Trevino, and sister Eva Longoria.

The music you are hearing is from a recording that my wife did in High School with her band. All the keyboard playing and the solo is Lilia. One of her many talents.
The following was read by me (Lilia's Husband) at Lilia's Vigal/Rosary.  A poem from EE Cummings that she always enjoyed.  

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart)
i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) ... i want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

"Moses & Jesse,

I am so very sorry for your loss.  Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you every single day.  Lilia lived each day with love, joy and peace which she selflessly shared with the rest of the world.

The very first time I met Lilia was at an event called Procurement 2000.  I reconnected with her through Jesse, after Moses was born.  In 2007, I had some work-related difficulties and was having a really hard time with it.  I accidentally dialed Lilia and she volunteered to change her plans to have lunch with me.  I found an e-mail I had sent to Father Henry who, at the time, was with the Campus Catholic Ministry at UTEP.  Here's an excerpt of what I wrote back in 2007:

I contacted a conocida I hadn't seen for many years.  As always, God puts people in your path for a reason.  Come to find out that she has walked the same path I'm currently walking.  She was so incredibly helpful and generous with her knowledge and her time.  And, coincidentally enough, she knows you from when you were in Houston (Lilia Trevino).  If that isn't the Lord working to help me, I don't know what that is.  She also gave me a little magazine called the Magnificat.  I read it for the first time this morning.  What was today about?  Being humble, the struggles we all face in life and learning to serve others.  

Lilia is always there for me when I needed her.  She helped guide me to peace & joy regardless of the challenges because, as she told me years ago, this too shall pass... just have faith.

Peace & love to you both.  You know we're family and I'm here for you if you need me.

"Although I do not know Mrs Trevino I would like to express my deepest condolences to her family and friends. I would also like to share some words that i think you would find comforting, many people have different ideas about death but the bible teaches about the condition of the dead it mentions that the dead do not suffer,but it also mentions that God promises everlasting life on a paradise earth psalms 37:29. so it is possible to see your loved one again without sickness, pain or death. Is that not comforting."

"In memoriam and heartfelt gratitude.
Dearest Lilia, I am eternally grateful to our Lord for the blessing of your presence in my life at St. Pius. Thank you for sharing your God given gifts and talent with us. The M.O.M.S. ministry you led for so many years touched the lives of so many young mothers and I am certain they are better mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, human beings because of their participation in the ministry.  Thank you for being so supportive of the Sacred Earth ministry at a time when environmental issues and caring for God's beautiful creation was not popular. You were one of the leaders in ministry who supported and encouraged sharing Ministry resources and events.  Thank you also for allowing me to display my humble jewelry creations at the MOMS Christmas fairs.

You are in my thoughts and in my heart. Your love and your light from your eternal resting place continues to warm and shine upon all of us who had the privilege and blessing of sharing life with you here on earth. With all my love, all who I am, Cuki Vega"

"I knew Lilia in so many capacities - as a fellow parishioner, a ministry leader, a parent at St. Pius, but more importantly as a friend. I have always felt honored and special that she went out of her way to invite me to be part of her and her family's life- whether it was an anniversary, a birthday, or a boy scouts event. Hearing other people talk about her now makes me realize it was really in her nature to welcome and reach out to everyone. She sent pictures of Moses' milestones to me knowing I, her son's former kinder teacher, would appreciate them and she was right! I very much did. When I go to a gathering with a sea of unfamiliar faces, Lilia and Jesse's warm hugs and smiles would always give me a sense that I belonged there and immediately, that sea of strangers doesn't seem so intimidating anymore. Lilia's passion for her many roles at St. Pius always made me want to work harder at my own ministries. She was always full of ideas to make things better for the students at the school, for the parish and she would be so enthusiastic about them that she got me so excited as well. She was a truly remarkable woman, a warm presence, and a strong driving force. I feel deeply grateful and privileged to have been "invited" to be part of her life. Thank you, Lilia. Pray for all of us. Much love..."

"The last memory I will carry with me is sitting with Lilia at Blanca's party and talking about our love of movies and how we could not wait to see the family movie about brothers and sisters coming together for their father's funeral, "This is Where I Leave You." That night she planned and texted all of our friends about getting together to see the movie the next day. Somehow we were all able to make it and we were so happy to be together, Blanca, Tisha, Mary, Donna, myself and Lilia/Jesse. We laughed and cried so much that day, probably recognizing our own families in the story line. That would be our last movie together. I will forever treasure that memory of how happy she was that day. We never wanted to miss a chance at being together. Lilia loved her friends and we loved her back. She gave us all the gift of her friendship."

"Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
Oh God, You are my God
And I will ever praise You
I will seek You in the morning
And I will learn to walk in Your ways
And step by step You'll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days
And step by step You'll lead me
And I will follow You all of my days

The hottest lyrics from Rich Mullins

Jessie and Moses I met Lilia many years ago at the moms ministry.
I remember many times from moms, evangelization ,ACTS , Boy Scouts (at Gatti Town) Lila always having her head phones on. Music was always part of her life. I saw calm and patience in her.
The second memory is of Jesus on the wall . I can't lie I've used it in confirmation and ACTS without permission ! Lilia showed me to allow Jesus off the wall to walk by my side and recognize his Grace all around. May that Grace surround you today and may the strength of Jesus be felt as you continue into a future with her loving you from Heaven.
Love and Blessings

"Jesse, I am so very sorry for your loss. Lilia was an amazing woman. I am glad I got to know her and you. You are in my thoughts during this difficult time."

"Dear Jesse and Moses,

From the moment I met Lilia over 12 years ago, I could see a strong light that shown from within.  Her smile could light a room and the confidence that she had  made anyone know that she could do whatever she set her mind to doing and no one was going to stop her.

What I found most beautiful about Lilia was the love, joy,and pride she had for Moses from the moment she knew she was going to be a mother.  Her world revolved around her family, and Moses was the blessing she had longed and hoped for. Whenever she spoke of Moses her eyes lit up and you knew how much she loved him.   Lilia had tremendous faith in God and always let God use her as an instrument to bring others closer to Him. Lilia will be greatly missed by so many.

May God's faithful servant Lilia find eternal rest as she walks among the angels preparing a place for her loved ones and may you all find comfort in know that Lilia is in the presence of God. Bibi"
