Hilaria was born on March 17, 1931 in Bastrop to Vincente Rodriguez and Mikala Cortez Rodriguez. She married Mateo O’Geda, and they made their home in Groesbeck where she was a housewife, and devoted mother and grandmother. She was many more things to the family, their family doctor and advisor, and best friend. She could “kiss away the hurts.” Her many grandchildren and many, many great grandchildren were her greatest joy, loving them all and raising many of them. YaYa had lived at Frost with Michiel and Sheila and granddaughters, Sheila and Tani for the past eight years. Granddaughters, Sheila and Tani had an especially close relationship with her living at their home. They helped make her final days more comfortable and happy with their presence and their acts of caring for her. Also, grandson, Tom Berlin and granddaughter, Jamie Reagan and husband Chris of Corsicana were close by when needed. Mrs. O’Geda was preceded in death by her husband, Mateo O’Geda; her parents; eight sisters; a daughter, Mary Elaina O’Geda, and son, Mateo O’Geda, Jr. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Michiel and Sheila O’Geda of Frost and granddaughters, Sheila Ramos-O’Geda and Tani Ramos-O’Geda of Frost. Also, granddaughter, Jessica Hermosillo of Fort Worth; daughter and son-in-law, Mary Helen and Andrew Prado of Groesbeck; daughter, Mary Jane O’Geda of Groesbeck; son and daughter-in-law, Jesus and Velia O’Geda of Fort Worth; son and daughter-in-law, Ruben and Yolanda O’Geda of Waco; daughter, Rosa Malagon of Mexia; and daughter, Esperansa (Hope) O’Geda of Fort Worth. She also leaves behind thirty grandchildren, and many, many great grandchildren, all of whom she knew and loved. She is also survived by two brothers, Lorenzo Rogers and Emil Rogers and a sister, Vicenta Garcia. The family wishes to express a special thanks to Outreach and her caregivers, JoAnn Laubscher and Melissa Wallis.
