August 25, 1967 ~ February 10, 2021


Resided in: College Station, Texas

Maria Luisa Dimas was born in La Goleta, Michoacan of Mexico, to Alberta Vazquez and Pablo Dimas. She moved to the United States when she was a young child. Once entering adulthood, she married Ramiro Flores, which led to the birth of Ramiro Flores, Jr. and Eric Flores. She then moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, and started a new life there.

In her mid-30s, she had a daughter named Vanessa Palacios, and finally, in her early 40s, she had her last baby girl, which was Faith Dimas. With her two baby girls, she decided to move to Texas to give them a better life.

Maria Dimas was a beautiful, strong, independent single mother who would do anything to protect her loved ones. She dedicated her life to her children because family meant the world to her. She loved traveling, visiting family, making jokes, attending Vanessa’s soccer games, dancing, listening to music, and taking her girls out to eat. “We are who we are today because of Maria’s love.”

She was preceded in death by her mother, Alberta Vazquez, her oldest sister, Josefina Hernandez Dimas, and her niece, Ruby Dimas Garcia. Maria is survived by her children, Ramiro Flores, Eric Flores, Vanessa Palacios, and Faith Dimas, and many loving family members and friends.

On February 10, Maria passed away in College Station, Texas, at age 53. A Celebration of Life Service, officiated by Certified Celebrant Dawn Lee Wakefield, will be held at 9:00 a.m., Saturday, February 20, 2021, at Callaway-Jones Funeral and Cremation Centers, 3001 S. College Avenue, Bryan, TX 77801. Express condolences at CallawayJones.com

  8. Maria Luisa Dimas is one of the beautiful spirits God placed among us, that walked with us, gave us love, joy, compassion and hope, gifts of a good spirit, and now has left us until another time.

    When you lose someone close to you, you sit in silence connecting with your pain and grief, as the rest of the world fades away into the background leaving only you gazing at your memories that mean the most to you of the lost one . All my memories of Maria mean a lot to me. She was an extraordinary person of modest ambition, with a love for her children and a quest for them to have a better life. Whatever she chose to do, she always did her best to succeed. Regardless of the type of day she might be experiencing, she was powered by the kind of spirit that does not let you quit. She had a hidden toughness that was amazing. I say it was hidden because Maria spoke very slowly and deliberately. I don’t believe I have ever heard in some 26 years, Maria speak aggressively in any way. Speaking slowly was her natural way and it was a way that was worth its weight in gold. Maria never spoke with malice towards anyone, no matter how horrible others may have been. She had a nature that sought to be calm and closer to the part of life that was more pleasant and enjoyable. As a result, she brought happiness with her whenever she would visit. It was always a pleasure to hear that she was coming for a visit, or that we would be visiting with her. I learned a lot from Maria. She was a good confidant, and for a little sister-in-law, a person of honest advice. She was a great friend to have. I had traveled around on all modes of transportation and I thought I knew a thing or two about getting around until Maria helped me one day. I found out she knew a lot more about getting around than I did. Being a single mom who moved over a thousand miles away from the rest of the family to seek a better life for her children, she took it upon herself to learn how to make things work for her and her family with what they had. When she spoke, I would listen. She was a very good person who deserved respect and compassion. Extraño profundamente a mi cuñada.

    Her children should know that their mother is a very brave woman who when faced with the challenges in life pulling in all directions, her direction was always forward.

    God bless Maria for her love for her children and their exposure to the love of Jesus Christ, and for the love she gave to others. May she rest peacefully, awaiting her salvation for another time to come. Our prayers go with you Maria, our loved one.

  9. To the family,
    I am very sorry for your loss. I was Ms. Maria Dimas caseworker for the housing assistance program. I pray Jesus will heal all your broken hearts, and strengthen you day by day with his love and mercy.
