Obituary for Wanda Arriaga (Minchew)

Wanda Arriaga (Minchew)
Wanda Sue Minchew Arriaga, 71, of Waco, went to be with the Lord on April 15, 2018. Funeral services will be 10:00 a.m., Friday, April 20, 2018, at Pecan Grove Funeral Home, 3124 Robinson Drive, Waco, with Pastor David Cozart officiating. Burial will follow Rosemound Cemetery. The family will receive visitors 6 – 8:00 p.m., Thursday, April 19, with rosary at 6:00 p.m., at the funeral home.
Wanda was born in Corsicana, TX, on December 16, 1946, to Elbert and Beulah Mae Minchew. She moved to Waco with her parents and sister, Willie Antham and Brother Billy when she was 10 years old. Wanda worked at Piccadilly Cafeteria for 16 years and retired in 2001. Wanda enjoyed car rides while listening to music, watching several favorite TV shows, and most of all, spending time with family, especially her grandchildren. Wanda had the strongest faith in God and lived to be obedient to the Lord. Over the years, Wanda faced many medical obstacles, but through her faith in God and the strength he gave her, Wanda tackled each situation like a true soldier of God. Every day she continued to smile and still only worry about others; just awaiting her blessing of coming face to face with Jesus.
Wanda was preceded in death by her parents, Elbert and Beulah Mae Minchew; her son, Freddy Perez; brother, Billy Minchew; and niece Sherry.
Wanda is survived by her sister, Willie Antham, and brother-in-law Lawrence Monteilh. Life sisters, Joyce Perez and Yvonne Collins; sons, Victor and Frank Perez; daughter, Sophia Garcia, son Ernest Chavez and wife Regina, daughter Christina Lopez and husband Daniel, son, David Chavez; step-daughter, Mekamie Olivarez; life son, Andre Perez; daughter Marie Rodriquez and husband Sol; and youngest baby girl, Dolores Lopez and husband Oscar. Grandchildren, Dina, Jessica, Melissa, Rita, Martha, Robert, Jerry, Nicholas, Joseph, Adam, Anthony, Matthew, Sidney, Gabriel, Makala, Isac, Rudy Rey, Justin, Veronica, Brook, Josh, Marisa, Miranda, Luis, Ariana, Christian, Abigail, along with numerous great-grandchildren, nieces and nephew.
Special thanks to four very special Baylor Scott & White nurses, Christina, Kelly, Vicky and Soccora; and to the rest of the doctors and staff who went above and beyond for us all.
