Liz Rivera Vincent 69, of Bandera Texas passed away unexpectedly with her beloved friend Lola on May 22, 2024.

Elizabeth was known by most as Liz, or the Best Mom in the World, Grandma Liz, Abuelita, Aunt, Sister, Cousin, Nanny, or Mayan Liz the singer. But she was so much more than that. She was an incredibly amazing, strong woman with a lot of faith, always a smile, and a lot of love.

In Bandera, she worked for over 40 years at the Mayan Ranch, as of late as the Head Cook. Before that, she worked as an Executive secretary and in a fiduciary. Her hobbies included sewing, knitting, reading, crochet and taking care of the animals. She was a very accomplished seamstress, having sewed with a lot of love her daughter’s Quinceañera dress, even making a twin miniature dress for the Barbie on the cake. Liz was known for her amazing cuisine, her enthusiasm, love and dedication. At the Mayan, groups would specially request that she cook for them. She loved to sing, and had the most beautiful voice, giving a heart-clutching rendition of Ave Maria or Amazing Grace, but also loved to sing Pop, Mexican, Italian, French songs or opera with ease. She won the 2010 Bandera Idol competition with her spirited rendition of “Viva España.”

She was loved, and she loved her family, friends, dogs, many cats, and other animals she would regularly feed, always had a positive attitude, praying for her family, friends, co-workers, pets, for the world to be a better place.

Thus, Liz will be remembered for her beautiful voice and great cooking, but most of all for her kindness, all the love she gave, her faith and her love of Jesus.

Liz is survived by her daughter Claudia Caballer (Gilbert), grandchildren Isabelle and Caroline Caballer, her brothers and sisters, their families, and her many friends.

She was preceded in death by her mother Aurora Flores and her father Eusebio Rivera Ruiz.

Her funeral will be held on June 22nd at 10:00 am at St. Stanislaus Catholic Church in Bandera, Texas. There will be a wake at the Grimes Bandera Funeral Chapel, also in Bandera, Texas on Friday June 21st from 5-7 pm, followed by a prayer service from 7-9 pm.

Liz, who could often be seen wearing flowers in her hair, loved flowers and bright, happy colors, but also loved helping others. Thus, for those who wish, please consider wearing flowers in your hair and/or wearing her favorite color green to the ceremony. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to a Children’s home or an animal charity of your choice or having a stone engraved in her memory and that of Lolita, a stone purchased for the benefit of the St. Stanislaus Catholic Church’s new cemetery.

Those of you who knew her, loved her, and want to join us, there will be a gathering at the Church following the ceremony. Liz will forever live in our hearts.
