She was born on Nov. 14, 1952, in Poteet to Nicolasa (Rodriguez) and Abelino “Chore” Carrasco.
After graduating from Poteet High School she moved to Hereford, where she met and then married Juan O. Sanchez. The couple moved to Uvalde in 1981. They raised their three children in Uvalde.
The family says Sanchez was a devoted daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and aunt; she had unwavering love and support for her family and friends. She encouraged her family to pursue their dreams, thus satisfying her own dream of having a strong and caring family. She moved back to Poteet to be closer to her family. In recent years her joy came from creating special bonds with her grandchildren.
Sanchez was preceded in death by her father.
She is survived by her husband of 44 years; and her mother, both of Poteet; one son, Michael Sanchez; and two daughters, Sophia Huerta and Stacie Sanchez, all of San Antonio; five grandchildren, Anthony Huerta II, Vincent Huerta, Eric Huerta, James Huerta and Saarah Jass; and five siblings, Robert Carrasco and Donisio Carrasco, both of Poteet, Charlie Carrasco of Amarillo, and Pauline Valdez and Osanna Carrasco, both of San Antonio.
