Ten grandchildren Amanda Renee Davis, Atlanta Rae Davis, Victoria Ann Gonzales, Beronica Marie Gonzales, Angelina Rose Gonzales and Anastacia Grace Gonzales, Devon Kyle Gonzales, Nathaniel Francisco Gonzales, Vincent Xavier Gonzales, Hektor Antonio Gonzales. Two great grandchildren, Lucian Rey Rios and Layla Raquel Rios. Four sisters, Berta Ortiz, Maria Antonia Trevino, Alicia Gonzales and Maria Teresa Chavez all of Sabinal. Four brothers, Alejandro Aviles of Cedar Creek, Alvaro Aviles of Del Valle, Juan Aviles of Sabinal and Jesus Aviles of Odessa, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
Jesusita was preceded in death by her parents and wanted to continue to rest alongside them.
Jesusita always cared for others to the point she made it her career as a CNA for hospice recovery/relief. She made two wonderful friends in her profession by the name of Rebecca Jimenez where she was often told they were like Thelma and Louise and Maricela Sanchez who would chat her ear off and talk about work gossip. She was strong willed and gave until she couldn't anymore and when she finally took time away from work you could catch her eating late night cake and coffee or watching Wheel of Fortune. She adored her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews and was very proud of every single accomplishment they each had and made sure to tell everyone she knew. Growing up she cared deeply for her sisters and brothers by guiding them through life and assisting in their care to help her mother as she was the oldest sister of the bunch. She was known to be strong willed and opinionated which is why most looked to her for their strength.
