Gloria Costilla Obituary

Gloria Silvas Costilla passed away surrounded by family on December 17, 2023, at the age of 62 at Covenant Medical Center.  She was born to Jorge and Victoria Silvas on November 9, 1961, in Petersburg, Texas.  She attended Petersburg High School and International Business College.  She retired from Lubbock Central Appraisal District after 20 years. 

She married Steve Costilla on May 22, 1981 and shared 42 years together.  Left to cherish her memory are her husband, her son Steve Costilla and wife Maria, her daughter Christina Garcia and husband Steven, seven grandsons (Timothy, Jodan, Eric, Caleb, Zane, Jacob, and Teven), and four granddaughters (Alizah, Jordyn, Karter, and Harlee Rae) all of Lubbock.  She is also survived by two brothers, David Silvas and wife Mary from Del Rio, Texas, Jacob Silvas and wife Mary from Petersburg, and two sisters, Elma Moreno and husband Dario from Lubbock, and Delia Silvas from Petersburg. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, mother-in-law, father-in-law, sister Olga Champion, brother Oscar Silvas, and nephews Michael Zambrano and Billy Champion.

She enjoyed being with her family, especially spending time with her children and grandchildren, traveling with her husband, camping, and working on joint projects, as well as travelling and spending time with her sisters and friends, and watching her favorite television shows.  She will be remembered for her dedication to her family, her warm laughter, being a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, Tia to many nieces and nephews, cousin, and friend.  She will be greatly missed until we meet again.
