Mary Colleen Gonzalez, 63, of Bastrop, Texas, passed away on October 5th at St. Davids Medical Center in Austin, TX. She was born on September 27, 1957 in Portsmouth, VA. She was part of a Military family and has been all over the United States but called Texas home. She served 3 years in the United States Navy as a Lab Tech and that is where she met the love of her life Patrick Paul Gonzalez. She attended Johnson and Wales University in Chesapeake, VA. You could always find her in the kitchen cooking up great creations with her grandkids. Often, you could see her sitting in her rocking chair knitting the family stockings or a beautiful baby blanket for a family’s new edition. Being outside in the garden was a passion she shared with her husband.
She is survived by her husband Patrick Paul Gonzalez, her son and spouse Brian Lee Gonzalez & Tammy, her son and spouse Eric Michael Gonzalez and Tonya, and daughter and spouse Laura Marie Eves and Bob. She is also survived by her mother Mary Jo Tandy and sister Laura Jean. She adored her grandchildren Tyler, Catherine, Wyatt, Joseph, and Morgyn. And we cannot forget the family pet, Sadie.
