Carmen Amaro, born and raised in New Braunfels, Texas, leaves behind a legacy of faith, love and family. Carmen passed away June 3, 2022 peacefully in her sleep at the age of 98.
She came from a large loving family, and her stories will be missed by all of us. Carmen was a nun for most of her youth but prefers to be remembered as a teacher, who loved to teach music to children. Carmen attended Incarnate Word College obtaining her B.S. in Education and Texas State University earning a Masters.
Carmen had a special relationship with her sister Mary who preceded her in death. Both sisters found great comfort in their Catholic faith. They were the heart and soul of the Amaro household. They loved their family and constantly held gatherings in their home. We will miss Carmen’s sense of humor, easy smiles and laughter.
