In Memory of
Mirta Maria Barreiro
-

Mirta Maria Dal Maso Barreiro passed away on January 3, 2021.  She had long suffered from Huntington's Disease Chorea.  She was born on May 6, 1940 in Buenos Aires, Argentina to Raimundo and Florinda.  She had a sister who also suffered from the same illness later in life.

She studied Italian and excelled in swimming, winning several medals and trophies.  She studied, graduated, and then taught Italian at Escuela Dante Alighieri, a private school in Córdoba, Argentina, within Buenos Aires.  Dante was the writer of the "Divine Comedy."

She married John C. Barreiro on May 14, 1960 in the chapel of San Antonio in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  In 1965, they immigrated to the United States and, a year later, gave birth to their son, David.

She worked at a few places, most notably at Hydril for a few years when they were starting out and then at the Texas Instrument plant near Sugar Land (Stafford) for 14 years.  The couple eventually opened up their own business in 1976.

She was never known to tell a lie.

She was a loving mother and a loving wife.

We are going to miss her.
 

Services will be held on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 from 10am to 12pm at Beresford Funeral Service.
