Amelia Acosta Miranda was born on February 16, 1930 in Corpus Christi, Texas. She went to be with the Lord and was reunited with her husband Joe B. Miranda Sr. on January 7, 2016.
Amelia loved her family and was a beloved wife, adoring mother, and a cherished grandmother and great-grandmother. She often started her comments with: “ I am one person that…” So we will always remember her as that one person that loved us all unconditionally and “that one person” who was full of life to the very end. She was lucky in so many ways so it was not surprising that she enjoyed going to casinos, winning from her scratch offs, SHOPPING for shoes and purses, or sometimes just relaxing with her word find puzzles. She was always ready to dance and we will always remember her as such a “sweet” lady, who no doubt got so sweet from all the sweets she relished, especially her cookies and pies!
She was preceded in death less than a year ago by her husband, Joe B. Miranda; her parents, Irene and Crecencio; her brother, Santiago Acosta and sisters, Pauline Hill and Lucia Gonzalez. She was the last of her immediate family to pass on and now they are all reunited in heaven.
