Loving Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother


Clemencia Fernandez, age 97, passed away from natural causes on February 2, 2018 at her home in McCullom Lake, IL.
Clemencia was born on December 28, 1920 in Abram, TX, the daughter of Pedro and Juanita (Garza) Villarreal. In 1952, she married the love of her life, Roberto Fernandez and they moved to Illinois. In 1955, they bought their dream home in McCullom Lake where many family celebrations were held.
Clemencia was a strong woman of faith who enjoyed family life and had many hobbies. An avid gardener, she took pride in her abundant flower gardens that she tended until the last spring of her life. Her hobbies also included reading novels, writing personal memoirs, and sewing. She loved to take road trips with her family and they travelled throughout the United States. She was always helpful and kind and had a wonderful sense of humor. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Clemencia is survived by her three daughters, Yolanda (Val) Shebeko, Gloria (Hans) Gales, and Sylvia Fernandez; three grandchildren, Samantha, Eric, and Chantal; and two great-granddaughters, Amber and Hazel. She is also survived by two sisters, Elena, age 100, and Elvira, age 95.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her beloved husband Roberto; two sisters; and four brothers.
All funeral services will be held in Texas.
