Raquel Romero de Hernandez
Raquel Romero de Hernandez, 78, was born June 5,1942 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua Mexico. Raquel died in Midland on September 8, 2020. She married Bernardino Hernandez February 24, 1966. Raquel was a very supportive wife, a loving, nurturing mother and an even more amazing and always thoughtful grandmother. She was proud to always share Gods word as a very active missionary, always supporting her husband’s pastoral work. She always went above and beyond in her spiritual walk and excelled in the Women’s Missionary Union. A prayer warrior without a doubt. Her smile could light up a room, her laughter so contagious, and she had an abundant amount of jokes. She could make light of the worst situation and fully rely on God.
