Irma Lopez de Montelongo

October 2, 1973 — November 26, 2023

Killeen

Irma “Tequi” Irene Lopez de Montelongo, 50, of Killeen, Texas, passed away on Sunday, November 26, 2023. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, December 5 at Harper-Talasek Funeral Home beginning at 4:15 pm. A visitation will be held the evening prior, on Monday, December 4, from 5-7 pm at the funeral home with Recitation of the Rosary at 6 pm.

Irma was born on October 2, 1973, in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, to parents, Elvira Cruz de Lopez and Gumaro Lopez Diaz. She graduated high school and was employed as a housekeeper in the local area. Irma had a previous union with Hector Ramon Montelongo, which gifted her with her wonderful children.

Tequi, as many of her friends knew her, was a devoted mother, with her biggest goal being to keep her children together and be able to see her grandchildren grown up. She was a great cook and liked to dance and was a true animal lover. Irma was strong, hardworking, and the truest, always-by-your-side friend to all, no matter who or what kind of person they were. Tequi always looked after everyone and prided herself on being a good friend. Irma was an exceptional daughter, a very joyful daughter-in-law, and loved her family dearly.

Irma is preceded in death by her father, Gumaro Lopez Diaz; and son, Hector Rey Montelongo.

Those left to cherish the memory of Tequi are her husband, Jose de Jesus Contreras; mother, Elvira Cruz de Lopez; daughter, Wendy Guadalupe Jiminez; sons, Hector Montelongo Jr., and Jesus Montelongo; brothers, Ruben Lopez Cruz, David Francisco Rodriguez Cruz, Edgar Gumaro Lopez Cruz, Jose Ruben Lopez Cruz, and Juan Alberto Lopez Cruz; sisters, Magdalena Patricia Lopez Cruz, and Tamara Lopez Cruz; and grandchildren, Reyna, Jorge Rey, Enily, and William.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who has helped with funeral services, and to those who came to support the family as they said their last goodbyes to a wonderful woman, who was a great daughter and mom.

May she rest in peace.
