Visitation: 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday evening at Sneed Funeral Chapel. Tensia was born on October 20, 1959 in Lampasas, Texas to Antonio, Sr. and Lucia Valles Ybarra. She grew up in Lampasas and graduated from Lampasas High School in 1978. After high school she got married and started a family. Before the birth of her first grandchild she was employed as a paraprofessional at Kline Whitis Elementary. She left this work in order to dedicate her time to caring for her mother and grandbaby, Emory. At the time of her passing she was a teacher at Heritage Daycare, and a bus driver for Lampasas ISD, she has been a bus driver for well over 25 years. Tensia married Philip Jesse Ramirez in 2002 in Lampasas and they were happily married for 18 years. They were truly each other’s best friend and were inseparable, rarely seeing one without the other. They enjoyed spending time with each other, family, shopping, cooking and baking. Tensia was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church where she served in the Guadalupana Society and also assisted and volunteered in the St. Mary’s kitchen. She was preceded in death by her parents, Antonio, Sr., and Lucia Ybarra; siblings, Martin Ybarra, Robert Ybarra, Arthur Ybarra, Lupe Valadez; nephew, Anton Ybarra and great-nephew, Anthony White. Survivors: Husband, Philip Jesse Ramirez of Lampasas; daughter, Shana Vineyard and husband, Zachary of Lampasas; son, Rudy Garza, Jr., and wife, Nickie of Sherman; grandchildren, Emory Grace Vineyard, Grant Steven Garza, Lucia Jean Garza; sisters, Rosemary Jasso of Dallas, Frances Magley and husband, Roger of Amarillo; brother, Antonio Ybarra, Jr. and wife, Judy of Lampasas and numerous nieces, nephews and great-nieces and nephews. Tensia enjoyed children. Children were her passion and she loved spending time with her grown children, her grandbabies and her babies at Heritage Daycare. Her grandbabies were her greatest joy! She was a friend to all, and a stranger to none. She felt deeply and loved fiercely. She was both soft and powerful; both practical and spiritual. SHE WAS A GIFT TO THE WORLD. The family wishes to extend their gratitude to New Covenant Church, Sneed Funeral Chapel, family, friends, and co-workers.
