Anita was a caring, loving, strong woman. She loved to spend time with her grandkids and have weekend festivities with her husband and mother. Her grandkids were her life and would always do anything to make them happy. She enjoyed spending her time shopping, spending time with her family and while she was home, she enjoyed watching game shows to making tortillas to satisfy her grandkids. She would enjoy going to chilis for a good meal, collecting purses to pull her outfits together, and capturing memories on her phone. If anyone was in need, she will find a way to lend a hand, place to stay, an ear to listen, or her honest opinion. 

Pallbearers: Guadalupe Ruedas Jr., Mark Gonzales, Anthony Lara, Anthony Isaiah Hernandez, Dylan Reynolds, Caleb Reynolds; 

On behalf of the Hernandez’s family we would like to thank Hospice Austin, and Ascension Austin Infusion Center
