Olaya M. Gonzalez (75) passed away on December 26, 2020. She grew up in Hargill, Texas and moved to the Seattle area with her family in the early 1970’s.

Olaya is survived by her husband, Andres Gonzalez and her four children; Nelda Garza Medina,  Roberto Garza, Raul Garza Jr and preceded in death by daughter Norma Garza (2006). She was also blessed with eight beautiful granddaughters and four lovely great grandchildren.

During her retirement, Olaya loved to have family BBQ’s and cook the best food. She also enjoyed listening to Mexican music, watching telenovelas, playing and watching soccer and going shopping. She was always welcoming with a sweet smile and laugh that would light up any room. She was filled with kindness and generosity beyond measure.

She will be greatly missed.

Hi Olaya- I just wanted to say that we all miss you so much. You cared so deeply for your family especially your kids. I will always remember the Mother’s Day we spent the day together and got our feet done. That was the first time in a long time it was just me and you. It meant the world to me ❤️. I will miss your laugh and funny humor and the way you always had a good comeback for everyone! I promise to always take care of your baby boy and be by his side no matter what. Please say Hi to my dad and Norma from me and give them a big hug. Miss you and love you always. Ready in heaven…until we meet again.
