Our Lord called Maria Carmen Robles home on September 18th, 2022; she was surrounded by her loving family. Carmen was born on June 2nd, 1957, in Slaton, Texas, to her late parents, Jesus and Reyes Perez. She married Raymundo “Boo” Robles on October 27th, 1984.
Carmen served as a Eucharistic Minister at her home parish of San Ramon Catholic Church. She retired from Texas Tech University’s Communication Services. She was best known for her kind and altruistic heart. She enjoyed dancing, working alongside her coworkers, laughing with her brothers and sisters, and viewing the Texas Tech Red Raiders, the New York Yankees, and the Dallas Cowboys, but nothing meant more to Carmen than spending time with her husband, sons, and her grandchildren.
The family will receive friends with a rosary being recited at 7:00 PM, Wednesday, September 21st, 2022, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers Funeral Home.
