It was December 14, 1950 in Tahoka, Texas, that the late Adolfo and Julia Valdez gave birth to a baby girl they named Mary Lou. She married Roy Tarin on June 22, 2018, at St. Elizabeth Catholic Church in Lubbock, Texas. Mary Lou enjoyed shopping, dancing, wearing hats and scarves. She loved the Red Raiders and always had her guns up! Her favorite song was “Ganas De Besarte”. She would always say, “I’m beauti*to*ful.” Mary Lou gained her wings on February 12, 2022.
Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Roy Tarin. Her daughters, Susie Valerio and Rachel Jimenez. Her sons, Gabriel Tarin, Philip (Jackie) Tarin, and Thomas Tarin.
