Plan Ahead

Maria Josefina Perez

June 4, 1960 –
 April 8, 2023


María Josefina Pérez also known as “Chepa, Jose, and Fina”. She was born on June 6th, 1960, in Coahuila Mexico. Maria gave her last breath on April 8th, 2023, holding her children’s hands at Kindred Hospital in Houston, TX.

Maria is survived by her four children Roberta, Raymond, Maribel, and Guadalupe. Her 11 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren and 2 beloved pets Paco and Sushi.

Maria was a strong woman who raised her children as a single mom working tirelessly to give them what she could. Maria was later diagnosed with Lupus and Pulmonary Fibrosis at the age of 59. It was then that she started her tough journey in hopes of one day receiving a lung transplant. Unfortunately, that day would not be possible as she faced many obstacles and God finally called her home to rest.

She will forever be missed and admired for her will to live. In her own words “soy fuerte” she is strong.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Thank you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
