She and her husband were long time business people, they started a grocery business in Lopeno, Texas and moved to Edinburg in 1946 where they opened a grocery store which became a familiar landmark known as "La Tienda Amarilla".

It was truly a family business with their children participating in the daily operations of the store. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
