Dolores Flores, Dora Jurado's eldest daughter, married Albert Aranda, Jr.
on October 25, 1962 in San Diego, California. This union produced five
children, Loretta Dora, Christina Elva, Ernest Flores, Arlene Dolores and
Michelle Yvonne. Of these only Loretta was born in Los Angeles. The other
four children were born in San Marcos, Texas and have lived there most of
Dolores was divorced from Albert in 1978 and raised these children from then
on (inspired by my aunt Annie). Loretta graduated from college in 1985 and is
currently working for the Attorney General's office and living in Austin, Texas
which is 35 miles from San Marcos.
Christi is employed by Academy Stores and also lives in Austin with her "significant
other", Larry Mann and they both enjoy cycling and golfing in their spare time. Ernest
is employed by Best Buy Stores and lives in San Marcos. He commutes to Austin daily.
He is single and enjoys golfing, traveling and cooking. We can usually count on some
great desserts at family gatherings from Ernie.
Arlene lives in San Marcos with Scott Heinize in an older home in downtown San Marcos
with their dog, Rio. She works for the City of San Marcos as an Activity Director at
our City Activity Center and is a cyclist and an enthusiastic frisbee golfer, he is
a carpenter for a custom home builder, she and Scott also enjoy golfing and various
Last, but not least, is Michelle, who is currently employed by Pedernales Electric
Coop in Kyle, Texas which is about 13 miles from San Marcos, Texas. She also enjoys
golf and volleyball and is pretty active with her soccer team. She also is single
and lives with four other girls in a large home in the country.
Dolores is not, at this time anyway, a grandmother and probably will not be in the
near future. I keep telling my children that they better hurry up, but they are not
in any hurry to do anything about this.
I am very happy and proud of my wonderful family.
I have lived in San Marcos, Texas since 1963 and feel that this has been a great
place to raise my children. I try to visit my family in California as often as
possible and can sometimes even talk one or two of my kids to come along with me.
