Munoz, Sister

Sister Margarita Maria Muñoz, a Pax Christi Sister, at the age of 56 was called by our Heavenly Father on February 7, 2020 in Corpus Christi, TX. Our Sister Margarita Maria has gone to be with Jesus in the heavenly glory after a beautiful service to the Lord.

Sister Margarita Maria was born October 20, 1963 in Querétaro, Mexico. She felt a strong desire to serve God and at the age of 27, joined the Pax Christi Sisters in Querétaro, México.  She obtained her Social Work degree from Escuela Clara Barton in Querétaro, México.

During her 29 years of religious life, Sister Margarita Maria ministered in several missions in the rural areas of the states of Querétaro and Michoacan in México as well as evangelization ministry in Brenham, Texas.

Sister Margarita Maria loved to do arts and crafts. She suffered from heart condition and she carried the cross of illness since early in life.  She was a very simple and dedicated Sister.

She will be missed in our Pax Christi Community, but her memories will remain in our hearts. May she Rest in Peace!

Sister Margarita Maria is preceded in death by her mother, Maria Guadalupe García Ramirez and her brother, Miguel Muñoz García.

She is survived by her father, Fidel Muñoz Medrano; her sisters, María Dolores Muñoz García, María Josefina Muñoz García, María Pueblito Muñoz Garcia; her brothers, Francisco Muñoz García, Fidel Muñoz García and many nieces and nephews in Mexico.
