Minerva was a woman of many talents. She drove horse carriages, grew plants and devoured books. She taught kids to fish, tube and kayak down the Medina River and ride horses in her backyard. Minerva was a confidant and prankster with her siblings, Terry, Lupe, Mary, Dina and Paul. She and her husband, Marlin, enjoyed living at the river’s edge, taking part in the Comanche Cliffs community, and the yearly Cowboy Capital trail ride. She loved her sunshine and moon and her reason for breathing. In her retirement years, she enjoyed traveling anywhere her daughter dragged her, especially detours to a casino.
Minerva is preceded in death by her husband, Marlin, her parents, Minerva and Pablo Mendoza, her horse, Orion, her dogs, Summer, Eb, Roxane, Faye and Bella, and numerous cats.
Minerva is survived by her daughter, Monica, her siblings Terry, Lupe, Mary, Dina and Paul.
