“Mamie” went to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 12, 2021. She was born on June 24, 1937, in New Gulf, Texas to the late Alejandro (1946) and Mercedes Blanco (1944). In 1960 she moved from Bolling, Texas to Lubbock. She worked at Lighthouse for the Blind for many years and then worked for Levine’s Clothing Store for three years. After she went on to work for Texas Tech, catering for the university and polishing silver. In her spare time, “Mamie” loved to play bingo and gamble. Her family will always remember if anyone mentioned her two favorite hobbies, she was packed and ready to go. However, Mamie’s greatest joy in life was spending time with her family. Her children and grandchildren were her everything.

She is preceded in death by her parents Alejandro and Mercedes Blanco; a son Augustine Arocha Jr. (March 6, 2013); a brother David Blanco (1998); two sisters Ellena San Miguel and Elvira Postel

Survivors include two daughters Mary Trevino of Lubbock and Margie Mireles of Burlington, Colorado; Brothers Francisco Suaste of Whorton, Texas, Alejandro Blanco Jr. of Corpus Christi, Jose Blanco of Houston, Gilbert Blanco of Houston, Juan Blanco of Ft. Worth and Victor Blanco of El Paso; two sisters Catarina Becerra of Bolling, Texas, Mercedes Montelongo of Las Cruces, New Mexico; eight grandchildren; sixteen great grandchildren and two great great grandchildren.
