Austin, TX

Our Beloved father, Mike G Amaro , 96 was called home to heaven on Wednesday, February 21,2024. Mike was born at home in Creedmoor,Texas on Thursday September 29,1927. He was the oldest child out of 7 to Eladio & Theresa Amaro. Going to middle and high school were not in the books for this young man. He went straight to work in the fields. At one point he tried going into the service but was turned away, He was told that he was too small to enlist in the Army. At a very young age he picked up a guitar and was self-taught. He was a very talented guitarist and knew the inside and outside of an acoustic and bass guitar like the back of his hand. He played with many bands and was good at what he did. There were many bands that wanted him but he declined and stayed true to his compadre, Manuel Donley y Las Estrellas. He also earned the nickname, “Lil MIke”. Twinkle was given to him by his wife, Josie. Many relationships were formed while on the road playing various weddings, quinceaneras and parties. Mike’s motto was, “ I don't like parties unless I’m getting paid to perform .” As a young adult, he picked up a golf club and liked hitting the balls. He worked many years as a presser at Darlings Cleaners and Sweet Cleaners. While at Darlings Cleaners, he invented his own concoction to remove tough stains on garments. The owners wanted to buy his recipe but he didn't allow that to happen. Whether he was at home fixing something, working, playing at a party, or just semi-relaxing, he kept busy. We say semi-retirement because even after retirement he still wanted to work. Up until his wife's passing, he was very active in the 7:30 am choir at Sta. Julia choir. At that point, he started having health issues with his knee and wanted to attend mass for it was just a little more difficult for him. He remained a devout catholic and his faith was stronger than ever. He loved all of his children near and far. His grandchildren were his pride and joy. In the recent weeks that passed, he was happily waiting to meet his newest great-grandchild, Roselyn Josephine. Mike shared 60 wonderful years with his wife, Josephine H Amaro who preceded him death. His infant daughter Amparo Angel Amaro and Dolores Amaro. His sister Simona Esparza and Paul Amaro Sr. He is survived by his children, Alfred, Richard (Fermina), Ernest, Mario (Melissa), Daisy, JohnAlbert (Lynn), Christal (Joseph), Miguel, Mike (Valerie), Benny, and Teresa; 17 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren; his sisters Daisy Martinez, Mona Amaro, Helen Gomez, and brother Bruno Amaro Sr along with many nieces and nephews. It broke our hearts to let him go but he was ready and knew that his time was limited. He will forever live in hearts and he will always be talked about just like he is here. Visitation will be held on Friday, March 8, 2024, from 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m., with Recitation of the Holy Rosary beginning at 7:00 p.m., at Mission Funeral Home - East Side, 1615 East Cesar Chavez Street. Services for Mr. Amaro will conclude at the close of the night.

Michelle Marie Cole

Died : Feb 20, 2024

Austin, TX

Michelle Marie Cole, 53, passed away peacefully on February 20, 2024. Michelle was born a happy baby and that happiness never waned. As a hairstylist, she utilized her creativity in the salon to boost the spirits of her long-term clients, while also learning about their lives. She was moved by the holy sites in Rome, and in Israel, such as Bethlehem in the West Bank. Her heart pumped wildly as she watched the bulls of Pamplona storm through the cobblestone streets; she danced to the music of Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro; and she even got to meet her relatives in the small mountain village of Caccamo, Sicily. She especially loved traveling to India to attend a friend's wedding. She was in love with life. Karen Lynn, Michelle's big sister, was her most trusted friend. It was always a joy to watch them tease one another and laugh while sharing stories. Karen and her husband, Jason, loved her dearly. Michelle experienced a new kind of happiness in 1990 when her son, Shelby, was born. This was one of her proudest moments. She lived for him. She was blessed again in 2019 when Shelby and Lauren had their own son, Beckett. Her most important role became "Meemaw," and she loved him fiercely. Being Aunt Shelly to her niece, Gianna, the daughter of her little brother, Criss, and his wife, Helena, filled her with joy. Most importantly, Michelle found the man of her dreams in her husband, Brent Parish, and they enjoyed their life together. This past year, he gave her the most tender, loving, and devoted care. Brent's parents, Ron and Kayla, loved Michelle as their own daughter. On behalf of our family, we would like to thank the many people who helped her during this time, such as Dr. Kyaw Aung, Maya Simand, and her close friends. We love you, dear Michelle. Dad (Dennis Cole) and Elizabeth.
