Mary Alice was born on September 2, 1954, to Jose and Ramona Escamilla in Bartlett, Texas. On June 24, 1978, Mary Alice married the love of her life, Joe N. Solis in Olton, Texas. Living a simple and humble life, she began her beautiful journey with Joe and over the course of several years had four sons, whom she was so very proud of. She worked as a teacher’s assistant for many years and finished her career helping migrant children acclimate to new surroundings and new language. Mary supported her boys and husband through all they encountered and gave encouragement when times were tough. She eventually became a fulltime stay at home mom, investing more time in helping with the duties of motherhood as well as taking care of her one true love, Joe.Mary Alice was a very beautiful, compassionate and remarkable woman, to say the least. She was always considering the best thing for you and putting herself last. She was one of the most selfless people on God’s green earth; that never held a grudge, and had not one evil bone in her body – but prayed for you. This special woman touched the lives of so many that walked through the doors of her home, that she has left a lasting impression that will forever remain with them; whether it was a summer with the Solis Family out on the farm, a weekend getaway, a time away from a broken home or the place any of her boys needed to go back to, to regroup or ground themselves once again. Her compassion for others was insurmountable and still speaks volumes, so much that she would literally be the last person to leave you in a time of despair. She was the one you could count on any given day or night, the first to take charge on your road to recovery, the one who told you she was sorry because she wasn’t there. Mary Alice was the one you called ‘Mi Hija’, your ‘Sis’, or your ‘Tia Mary or ‘Cuz’. Mary Alice was the one her boys called ‘Mom’ and she was the one Jose Noe called ‘My Baby’. She will have a very high place in heaven and her legacy will live through us all.“The Lord is like a Father to His children, tender and compassionateto those who fear Him. For He knows how weak we are; He rememberswe are only dust. Our days on earth are like grass, like wildflowers,we bloom and we die. The wind blows and we are gone as though wehad never been here. But the Love of the Lord remains forever withthose who fear Him.”Psalms 103:13-17Survivors include her husband, Joe N. Solis; their children, Chris Solis and wife, Belinda; Jacob Solis, Joe F.
