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.
