Araceli Avila

“I have fought the fine fight, I have run the race to the finish, I have observed the faith.”
- 2 Timothy 4:7

Araceli Avila, 65, of Conway, Arkansas passed away on January 30, 2024. She was born October 24, 1958, to the late Mario and Amparo Lopez in Delicias, Chihuahua, Mexico. She was a beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and aunt.

Araceli is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Mario Avila and her loving children: Daughters Araceli Avila (Francisco Saldivar), Clara Avila (Oswaldo Godinez), Sons Brian Avila (Raffaela Avila), and Jacobo Avila (Megan Woods).

Araceli truly loved Jehovah with all her heart. She planted the truth into the hearts of many, including her immediate family. She wanted everyone she encountered to learn about Jehovah and all his wonderful truths. Araceli dedicated her life to Jehovah on May 18, 1988. She spent the last 15 years of her life in the pioneer work. She loved caring for her Bible students, many of which affectionately called her mom.
