Anita Solis Damian, 84 of Angleton, Texas, entered Heavens gates on January 25, 2017. Anita was born on July 8, 1932, in La Grulla, Texas to Policarpio and Petra Solis. Anita married Celestino Garza Damian on August 20, 1953 in Velasco, Texas.
Anita was a teacher's assistant at Velasco Elementary School for 25 years. She especially enjoyed working with the children who initially spoke mostly Spanish and helped them sharpen their English and math skills. She loved to teach so much that even when she was not working, she would sit down with her own grandchildren and help them with homework and improve their math skills using flashcards. When she retired from Velasco Elementary School, she joined her husband in running his surveying company, Damian and Associates, Inc. until she once again retired in 2011. Anita's hobbies included gardening, antiquing, crosswords and find-a-word puzzles. Anita was most famously known for her pan de polvo Mexican wedding cookies that she would make during the Christmas season.
Anita is preceded in death by her parents, husband, brother, and sisters, Maria Guzman, Adelaida Zarate and Adela Solis, and great grandson, Michael Lorenzo Perez.
Anita is survived by her children, Estella Damian-Aluizo and her husband Nicolas, Jr., Ronald Damian and his wife Mariza, Rene Damian and his wife Sandra and Phillip Damian; grandchildren, Melinda Perez, Nicolas Aluizo III and his wife Belinda, Cristina Contreras and her husband Mark, Petra Becerra and her husband Chris, Anne-Marie Cohea and her husband John David, Ronald Dean Damian, Jr, and his wife Nichole, Celestino "Ben" Damian and his wife Dominique, Andrew Damian, Christian R.
