Rosa Linda Ruiz

Rosa Linda Ruiz “Tita”, was born Aug. 10, 1960 in Hondo. She was born to Irma Munoz and Jose Contreras. She entered Heaven’s gates Nov. 4, 2020. A graveside service was held Monday, Nov. 9, 2020 at Knox City Cemetery with Jose Munoz officiating. Services were under the direction of Smith Family Funeral Homes.

Linda was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. Her greatest joy was being a grandmother and having her family around her as often as possible.

She was a great cook, gift giver and always made you feel special if you were a guest in her home. One of her favorite phrases was “si dios Quiere” meaning God willing.

She is survived by her adoring husband of 34 years Lorenzo Ruiz, her mother Irma of Knox City; as well as her loving children Micheal Frausto of Knox City, Jimmy Trevino of Knox City, Gilbert Trevino and wife Tiffany of Knox City, Tommy Trevino and wife Leilani of Wichita Falls, Daisy Montanez and wife Mollie of Knox City; grandchildren who will miss her very dearly, Avery, Victor, and Tres Frausto of Knox City, Valeria, Elijah and Jace Trevino of Knox City, Gilbert Jr, Nicholas, Izaiah Trevino of Knox City, Tommy Jr of San Antonio, Malaya of Wichita Falls and Ayden Montanez of Knox City; sisters Josie Garcia, Diana Lerma and Sonya Ruiz all of Knox City; brothers Adrian Serrano, Salvador Serrano and Tim Serrano all of DFW.

Tita will be dearly missed by all that knew her. She had a way to make your heart happy even when you were down. She loved to laugh and live life to the fullest in the simplest of ways.
