Margaret (Maggie) Perales Saucedo


Kingwood, TX–A great Mom and Dear friend to all passed away peacefully in her home Monday July 10th.

Maggie had just celebrated her 83rd birthday, the wedding of her granddaughter Anna and was looking forward to celebrating her Son Eric’s upcoming birthday when she passed. She was, as always, the vision of what we all wish to be in mind and spirit as we approach her age. Maggie had the friendliest smile and would help you ease your troubles away with kind words of encouragement and no nonsense advice.

Maggie grew up in San Antonio with her parents, James and Antonia Perales, along with her younger brother Arthur. She graduated from Providence Catholic High School, then continued her education at San Antonio College. School was a challenge for her because of her dyslexia, but she believed in hard work, common sense, and the guidance of God to help her succeed. After marriage, she and her husband Arthur lived in San Antonio, then Laredo where she had her first child Chris, and finally Houston where she had two more sons Randy and Eric. The family started in West University then moved to a larger newer home in South Houston.  This was a new place with great promise for the future. However, after the area flooded three times, Maggie and the family moved once again to Kingwood Texas a suburb in north Houston where she lived ever after.

Kingwood was a new frontier far away from the life she knew in Houston, but it allowed her to raise her three boys in a wonderful neighborhood filled with the promise of a bright new future.  Maggie was soon joined in Kingwood by her brother & sister-in-law, Robert and Gail Saucedo and lifelong friends Patricia and Harry Weyel. She made great sacrifices of her time by continuing to work in Houston to help support the family and still make time for the kids. Kingwood allowed her family to flourish and her son’s to learn the core values that she cherished through good neighbors, schools, and by attending St. Martha’s Catholic Church every Sunday.

After a long life of working for others in jobs that included various retail sales positions, alterations management, jewelry store owner, and oil field project expediting, she opened an herb shop called Nature’s Solution in Old Town Spring, TX with her close friend Michaelene Peterson. Nature’s Solution was a great success and the two set many sales records allowing them to enjoyed many club trips around the world.

The two spent many years improving their knowledge and helping people, but after her close friend and business partner Michaelene passed she closed Nature’s Solution to spend more time with her family. After retirement she continued her passion of healthy living, cooking, herbs and encouragement to help everyone she knew. Maggie always shared her love of God, and Natural remedies till the end of her days.

Maggie is survived by her sons & wives (Chris & Krista, Randy & Alex, Eric & Iliana), five grandchildren (Cary, Christian, Anna, Austin, and Sophie), her brother & sister-in-law (Robert & Jane) and the newest edition to the family Grayson Saucedo (Garrett & Megan’s son).  Her family and friends will miss her dearly but will be content in the knowledge that this strong but gentile woman has by example paved a path for them to follow her into the kingdom of heaven.

It has only been a few day since she left us and we miss her very much. We are all so much better for her spending time to give us the strength we need to carry on when she is gone.  We Love you Mom … Thanks for all you have done for us!

    Mrs. Saucedo was a second mom to me growing up. I spent countless hours after school at her house with Chris, most likely giving her a migrane! She was always kind and welcoming. Wendy always talks about how kind and helpful she was as well. We’re so sorry for your loss and wish the best for the family. She was a great lady and we’ll both miss her terribly.
