Ofelia M. Trevino

Ofelia M. Trevino was a cherished Wife, Mother and Grandmother during her beautiful 88 years.  She lived a long and full life through the moment of her death on May 12,2022 in League City, TX.

Ofelia and her twin sister, Berta, were born in Pawnee, Texas to Enrique and Guadalupe (Chacha) Martinez on October 7, 1933.  The girls had three older brothers Celestino, Pedro and Lauro.  Soon after the twin’s birth, their beloved mother died as the result of a brief illness.  Pedro and Rosaura Martinez then adopted Ofelia.

Ofelia met and married the love of her life, Rodolfo D. Trevino (Rudy), who was in the United States Air Force, in 1953.  The couple traveled to many amazing locations during his years of service, then retired to sunny Florida in 1980.  The lovely pair was blessed with four children and later their growing families: son John Trevino and his wife Wanda, daughter Dolores Shimonek and her husband Steve, son Kenneth Trevino and his wife Rhonda, and son Tommy Trevino.  Ofelia was grandmother to Leah Ruiz, John Trevino Jr., Robert Ruiz, Wayne Trevino, Devin Trevino, Tristan Robertson, Mallory Olson and Taryn Odom.   She was further blessed to have fourteen great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren!  Ofelia was so proud of them all and doted over them every chance she got.

Ofelia loved to play Yahtzee, Bingo, Dominoes, Bunco and Pinochle.  She was always up for a family game night until the very end.  Ofelia loved a good bargain and was always in the mood to Go Garage Sale-ing!  She often passed her time watching her “stories”, crocheting, catching up with her lady friends, or reading her Bible.

Ofelia is proceeded in death by her parents, her husband Rudy, their son Tommy, her twin sister, and her brothers.

A celebration of life will be held at New Hope Baptist Church in League City, TX at a future date, to be announced.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society (https://www.cancer.org/) or Alzheimer’s Association (www.act.alz.org), organizations Rudy and Ofelia felt strongly about.


  1. Olfelia lived a wonderfully full life. She was blessed with a large loving family. All this success shows through and now she is at peace in heaven. “All is well in her soul’

  2. I am so sorry for the loss of your dear mother. She was so sweet and kind and funny! She was a great next door neighbor to my parents for many years. My mom loved having her next door. She was a great mom, grandmother, and friend. I know that you will miss her deeply. She is already with your dad and Tommy and the rest of the family, 100% restored and having a grand reunion. I love you all and please let me know what I can do to help. Donna Haynes Sword Edwards

  3. My dear friend is now where she longed to be! How glorious the encounter must have been with her loved ones who went before her. Mike and I deeply treasure our friendship with her and Rudy! I will miss our chats but look forward to the day we will see each other again. My sincere condolences to the family, with special love to Dolores and Steve who made sure she was happy and well cared for during her last years here on earth.

  4. Dolores and Steve, John and Wanda, and Ken and Rhonda,
    Your Mom, Ofelia, was the dearest of friends to my husband and I for 30 years. We shared so much from the West Virginia cabin to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
    I was so happy when Dolores called so I could talk with Ofelia a few weeks before she passed. We had a wonderful time with many laughs and she said she was praying I would be with her soon so we could continue our chat. She was full of warmth and goodness.
    I believe that her “presence” will be there to support all her family through the years to come…in ways you cannot yet know. But now she is in God’s hands with Rudy and those who have gone before.
    I will miss her too and her memories will remain forever.
    With Love and Prayers,
    Marilyn Symonds

  6. We rightly grieve when a loved one dies,
    But God has a very different reaction,
    He rejoices that another one of His
    Children has entered His eternal presence.
    Death is not an end but a new beginning.

    Thanks for your friendship and memories.

  7. Ms. Ofelia was a blessing to me; she always told me that she loved me. I met her while I was calling Bingo at Lake Haven, where she lived, then she joined our church, New Hope Baptist, where her Memorial service be on Friday, May 26, 2022 at 11:00 am. She will be missed, her loving smile and her smile! She has finished her journey and is resting the hands of her Savior, Jesus Christ.
