August 11, 1957 ~ August 21, 2022
On August 21, 2022 Maria Carmen O’Briant was called to be with the Lord at the age of 65. She passed peacefully, at home, surrounded by her family. She was born in Madrid, Spain to Manuel Las Heras Correa and Carmen Nunez Carrasco. She was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend.
She was a devoted wife of forty three years to her husband, John, who she loved with all her heart. She was also an amazing mother to her two children Lisa and Robbie. She loved being in the company of her family, her friends, and her beloved wiener dogs, Daisy and Sofi.
Maria Carmen personified “lady”. She was dignified, but always down to earth; classy, but in the most humble way.
She is remembered for her kindness, generosity, and compassion. She loved to read, crochet, garden, and visit daily with her Spanish friends and family by way of the internet. She loved to shop for the ones she cared about.
Maria Carmen is preceded in death by her parents Manuel and Carmen, her sister Dolores, and her brother Manolo.
She is survived by her husband John and her two children Lisa O’Briant and Robert O’Briant.
She loved her friends and family dearly and nothing pleased her more than being in their presence. She will be sorely missed.
Maria Carmen’s celebration of life will be held on Sunday, 4pm September 4, 2022, at Watershed Church, 9315 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78217. The family will receive friends at the Watershed Church one hour prior to the service. As this is a celebration of Maria Carmen’s life, casual church attire is recommended.
