There are condolences waiting approval on CARLA's Tribute wall

Carla Denise Stover Zaragoza, 65, of Conroe, went to be with her Lord & Savior on March 2, 2018. She was surrounded by her loving family and passed peacefully from their arms into the arms of Jesus.
Born April 22, 1952 to Bunny & Bo Stover. Throughout the years she became a big sister to 3 brothers, David, Robert and Rex Ronald and a sister, Vicki Lynn. She married her high school sweetheart and became a Navy wife and then a mother to Katrina & Billy Jr. whom she loved with all her heart and soul.
She loved being a stay at home mother but always yearned to become a nurse, but because of life’s circumstances she was unable to do so until later on in life. In 1989 at 36 years of age she decided that she was going to become a Registered Nurse and nothing was going to stop her. She was a straight A student and the president of her nursing class. She worked very hard and struggled through many health problems along the way. She was so very proud to put on her white dress and cap to walk across the stage to receive her diploma. She worked as an RN in Labor & Delivery and in Triage. She loved to take care of people and she very much loved her job!
Some of her favorite things were shopping, going camping, visiting new places, meeting new people, and spending time with her family and friends.
She met her love John Zaragoza in 2001. They spent many happy years together and he stood by her side throughout the rest of her life. He was her soulmate, best friend, confidant, helper, caretaker, and her safe place. She so very much loved her “JAZ”.
Carla went by another name, this one was the one she treasured above all others, “Nana Lala”. She was blessed with 9 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Being Nana Lala brought her much joy and was her greatest blessing.
Carla is preceded in death by her Father, Charles “Bo” Stover, by brothers Robert and David Stover, by her sister Vicki Walton and by her beloved 1st grand daughter Meagan Denise.
She leaves behind her parents Mary “Bunny” & Rex McElhaney & Karen Stover; The love of her life John Zaragoza; her children Katrina & husband Jason Perry, along with son Billy McCombs, Jr.; her brother Rex Ronald & wife Rachel McElhaney; her grandchildren Ryan Marie & husband James Coulter, Mikayla & husband Danny Furrer; Perry children, Jacob, Dalton, Cameron, Brayden & Madison and Allyssa Denise Desha; Great grandchildren, Kynzlee, Jackson & Kacelyn Coulter, Tatum & Meagan Furrer, Gracelynn & Jaxson Perry. She has so many other family members and friends that she loved!
She was a very loving mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend. She will be missed more than she could ever imagine.
