Graciela Torres Hartenberger, 65, of Richmond Texas, went to be with the Lord on September 8, 2021. She was born on August 6, 1956 in Richmond, Texas to Enrique and Guadalupe Torres. Graciela was known by everyone as Gracie. She was a longtime employee of Southwestern Bell, now AT&T, and retired after working there for over 40 years. Gracie will be missed for many reasons. She loved her family more than anything. She was known to take spontaneous road trips with her sisters to visit her brothers, and would go anywhere from quick trips to Abilene, Texas to as far as Japan to visit her nieces and nephews. Gracie was the type of family member and friend that would call and check up on you. If some one needed a shoulder to cry on, an ear to vent to, or someone to rely on, you could always count on her. She was a strong woman of faith, and her sweet soul and big heart will be greatly missed.
In addition to her parents, Enrique and Guadalupe Torres, Gracie is preceded in death by her husband Richard Hartenberger, brother Valeriano “Ben” Torres, and brother in law Ernest Rodriguez.
Survivors include sisters, Mary Helen Rodriguez, and Debra Jane Perkinson, brothers Jerry Torres and wife Eva Torres, and Enrique Torres and wife Elaine Torres, sister in law Marisol Torres, dog Chloe, and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
A Memorial Service in her honor will be a held on October 9th at 12:00 p.m. at Cabellero Ryder Funeral Home, located at 722 Grillo Way Rosenberg Texas.
