On February 7, 1957, Esperanza Calderon was born to Ramon and Paula Ybarra in Marathon, TX. She is survived by her loving husband of 38 years, Ruben Calderon.

Esperanza was an amazing woman who was always full of life and laughter and sweet as can be. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and the best housewife a family could ask for. She loved & protected her children and grandchildren. Her husband was the biggest part of her life, writing him love letters while they were dating was more important to her than her school work. She was always lending a helping hand when others needed it the most. Her specialty was feeding everyone an exquisite homemade meal. She had compassion for everybody and God was the center of her life. She was a servant of the Lord by using her talents and praying for everyone. She liked it when people made her laugh and smile. For her leisure time, she would get away and visit family. She was so funny in a way that she would make everyone laugh without even trying to be funny. One of her favorite things to do was going to Good Will stores and garage sales.  She would brake for garage sales signs and go out of her way to find them.

She will be missed so much! We Love You, Esperanza!

Survivors include her husband, Ruben Calderon; their children, Tony Ornelas, Jeffery Ornelas, Mark Calderon, Tony Calderon, Ruben Calderon Jr, and Isabell Calderon; 19 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; siblings, Raymond (Betty) Ybarra Jr, Aurora Rojo, Frances (Tito) Chavarria, Alice (Raul) Pena, and Rosa (Wilfred) Hidalgo.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Ramon and Paula Ybarra; sisters, Erma Valenzuela, Lupe Calderon, Grace Ybarra and Celia Valdez; brothers, Andres Ybarra and Ruben Ybarra.
