Angelica Castorena Bustamante

1950 - 2021


Angelica Castorena Bustamante, 70, entered eternal rest in Stockdale, Texas on Sunday, March 28, 2021.  Angelica was born May 30, 1950 to Luis and Petra P. Castorena and raised in Laredo, Texas.   Angelica was a nurse aide for many years in the Ophthalmology field and later retired from Wal-Mart.  She was a devoted catholic and served the Lord and her parish community of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.  She was a member of the VFW and the American Legion Auxiliary.  She served as District President and several other positions at all levels of the Auxiliary Department of Texas.  She proudly supported the military men and women along side her beloved husband!  She was a proud wife of a Vietnam Era Army Veteran and was often recognized for assisting with conventions, field trips and nursing home visits during the holidays.  She was known for going above and beyond in helping when and wherever she could.  Many have shared how she often stepped in and got the job done when a need arose.  Those who had the privilege of meeting and crossing paths with Angelica never left without a smile.  She was a giver, a great listener, a great friend, someone to confide in and loved to share her stories with everyone!    

Angelica is proceeded in death by her parents; the love of her life of 50 years Miguel Bustamante, Sr.; her beloved son Isaac Bustamante; and siblings Maria de la Luz (Lucy) Ortiz, Maria Elena Medina, Jose Conrado Castorena and Lauro Castorena.

Angelica is survived by her sons Miguel (Rebecca) Bustamante, Jr. and Gabriel (Chelsea) Bustamante; grandchildren Melissa (Cameron) Quintanilla, Ross (Erica) Valenzuela, Logan Bustamante, Leland Bustamante and Laney Bustamante; great grandchildren Caroline Valenzuela, Claire Valenzuela, Joe Valenzuela, Hendrix Quintanilla and Miles Quintanilla; siblings Juanita (Jesus) Villarreal, Leonor (Sebastian) Limon and Roberto (Barbara) Castorena.  Angelica is also survived by many relatives and friends.  

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks for all the prayers, thoughts, and messages. Visitation with the Family

Angelica was such a dynamic person and so instrumental in making the Vietnam Vets Sentry Dog reunions such great events.  She will be missed.  May God bless your family and your wonderful memories of her.

"I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death.
They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make.
Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories.
We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love."
