Julia G. Ruiz

August 10, 1931 — September 27, 2022

Julia Garcia de Ruiz, 91, passed away on September 27, 2022 after a brief illness.  She was a loving and supportive wife, and selfless mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.  Ever devoted to her Catholic faith, she was a humble and dedicated servant and had an immense love of our Lord and Blessed Mother.  She was born on August 10, 1931 in Chihuahua, Mexico, the second oldest of eight children.  She moved to El Paso in 1952 after marrying Manuel Ruiz, her husband of 70 years.  They established themselves in several El Paso communities, forming lifelong friendships, with Julia serving several church communities, rosary groups, Mana Inc--a charitable organization she helped found in the 1980’s, whose mission was to serve children and elderly in underserved colonias in Ciudad Juarez.  In her final 20 years of service, she participated in and eventually led her beloved “Talleres de Oración”. She was preceded in death by her two sons, Manuel and José (Pepe), her parents and two brothers. In addition to her husband, she is survived by her remaining children:  Gloria Ruiz-Myers (Tom), Carmen Ruiz Erivez (Joe), Ramon Ruiz (Sylvia), Javier Ruiz (Linda), Ricardo Ruiz (Carmelita Jimenez), and Julie Ruiz Gonzales (Sergio), eighteen grandchildren, several great-grandchildren, five siblings and countless nieces and nephews.  She planted seeds of love everywhere she went and was a spiritual godmother to many.  She will forever remain in the hearts of those who love her.

In honor of Julia’s spirit of giving, the family welcomes donations to Annunciation House, or a charity or church of your choice.
