You may have not known Elizabeth Alegria Riley, but she made this world a little bit better.
Elizabeth, age 56, surrounded by her family, passed away on October 8, 2020.
Elizabeth was born on October 16, 1963 to Richard and Marcela Alegria in Corpus Christi,
Texas. She graduated from Ray High School in 1982.
Elizabeth was a beloved daughter, sister, cousin, friend, aunt, grandma, and most importantly a
mom. Survived by her children, Gina Michelle Chavarria, Amanda Pauline Riley, and Corrine
Yvette Riley and grandchildren Julietta Chavarria and Aaliyah Chavarria. She was not only a
Mom to these three girls, but to anyone who needed a loving and accepting mother in their lives’. She did not judge others on past actions and accepted everyone as they came.
Elizabeth is preceded in death by her father and mother, Richard and Marcela Alegria, and her sister, Virginia Alegria. She is survived by her brothers, Richard Alegria (Ada), Raul B. Alegria (Bilha), Frank Alegria (Edna), and Charlie Alegria.
Elizabeth will always be remembered for her devotion to El Buen Pastor UMC and its worship
ministry, volunteering at Kelsey Memorial’s food pantry, singing in the Kelsey Memorial UMC
Choir, her humility, her selflessness and her smile. Though she did not have much to give, she gave everything she could.
