Mildred Escobar, 69, of San Angelo, was born February 20, 1951, in Shallowater, the only child of Santiago and Josefina (Valverde) Escobar.
Mildred went to be with the Lord on August 20, 2020.
She married Jesús Rincones, Jr. of Levelland, December 13, 1969.
She later remarried and moved with her husband, John Baigen, to San Angelo, where she lived for almost 15 years.
In 2009, her beloved husband, John, went to be with the Lord.
As she began to navigate this new season of life, in 2010 Mildred was proud to complete a training program through Christian Women’s Job Corps, a ministry of WMU.
She was a faithful member of Primera Church of San Angelo and served in various ministries, including prayer, kitchen and the church food pantry.
She enjoyed traveling, loved spending time with her family, and especially enjoyed her grandchildren.
Zumba, decorating for special events and caring for her pets were some of her favorite pastimes.
Mildred battled several types of cancers in the last few years and was steadfast and faithful to the Lord through it all.
She loved Jesus with her whole heart and lived a faith-filled life believing God to be her sustainer, friend and healer.
With each battle she encountered, she received many miracles and gave glory to God in each one.
To know her was to know a tenacious yet humble woman who never gave up, always pressed on, prayed continually, and pointed everyone she met straight to Jesus. We wish you all could have known her.
Survivors include her first husband, Jesús Rincones, Jr.; son, Jesse Rincones and wife, Brenda, of San Antonio; daughter, Helen Chavarria and husband, Eddie, of San Angelo; son, Ruben Rincones and wife, Jana, of San Angelo; stepdaughter, Linda Villarreal and husband, Joe, of Lubbock; and niece, Toni Flores of San Angelo.
She had 14 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; a stepson; and a great-grandbaby.
