On Wednesday, February 2, 2022, Eva Franco Acosta envisioned “están abiertas las puertas del Cielo y puedo ver al Paraíso,” and peacefully drifted into eternal rest, at her home in Round Rock, Texas, surrounded by her family. She was 92 years young.
Eva was born on March 17, 1929, to Manuel and Anita Franco in Sierra Blanca, Texas, she was one of ten children. She devoted her life in sharing her unconditional love, guidance, and kindness with all whose lives she touched as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister, and friend.
