Obituary of Alice Ledesma Gomez

Please share a memory of Alice to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Alice was born on October 21, 1943 in Austin, Texas and comes from a long line of Austinites, which includes seven generations and whose ancestry includes French, German, Spanish, and northern Indigenous peoples of Texas.

In the 1960’s, Alice attended Antioch College in Austin, Texas. She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and Social Work. During the 1960’s and 1970’s, she worked for SER (Service Employment and Redevelopment, 1964) Jobs for Progress. She worked to help minorities in education, training, and in finding jobs. She was also an activist in the Chicano Civil Rights and Liberties Movement.

During the 1980’s, Alice worked with the City of Austin Special Projects in the Zaragosa and French Ligation neighborhoods. She helped many Hispanic Homeowners to restore their historic homes. Her office was housed in the Guadalupe Church (Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church), which was also located in the Zaragosa neighborhood.

During the 1990’s, Alice worked with the Center for Battered Women. She helped to rescue many women and their children from their abusers. She helped women in changing their lives for a better and safer future. Alice played a major role in helping with Women’s Rights and Protections.

Alice continued with her social work; even in her later years, she helped children and their families at Austin Community Nursery and Main Spring Schools until retirement age. Alice gave so much during her life in helping minorities, women, and children and families to achieve better lives and achieve their dreams.

Alice was the same way when it came to her family. Family was everything to her. She was loyal, loving, and caring. She was the person that everyone in the family, friends included, came to for concerns, advice, and knowledge. She was very educated and a person with resources and contacts and so many friends.

During the holidays, she was a wonderful hostess and could cook up a feast for the holidays, which she held the honor of doing during the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. She was also well known in the family for her turkey and dressing and caldo de res. She really had a way of bringing the beauty to family gatherings. Her special touches are always made with love. She made memories for all of her family to last a lifetime; the happiest memories, indeed.

Alice Ledesma Gomez, age 80, lifelong resident of Austin, Texas, was born into Eternal Life on Tuesday, November 28, 2023. She is reunited with her parents, Maurice and Julia Garcia Ledesma; her sister, Bertha Ledesma; her brother, David Ledesma; and her great-grandson, Izzak Dominik Perez.
