Jesusita (Susie) Ortiz, 89, of Hurst passed away on surrounded by her loving family.
Susie, a native of Victoria, TX, born on January 17, 1935, to Catarino and Maria

wife and mother for over 69 years. Susie found joy in cherishing her children,
grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, participating in bible studies, and embracing

Church. Her legacy of love and devotion will continue to inspire those whose lives she
touched.
