Mickaela (Mickey) Flores Navarro, of Midland Texas, was called home by Our Savior Thursday, October 20, 2022. Mickaela was born September 29, 1930 in Paint Rock, Texas to Feliciana & Manuel Flores. Mickaela was raised in San Angelo, Texas where she met the love of her life Rumaldo Navarro & was married to him June 4, 1949.

Mickey loved singing hymns, singing in the church choir, cooking/baking, & spending time with all her loved ones. Her last occupation was a custodian for the City of Midland & prior to that she devoted her time to private home care for many families. The best way to describe Mickey was through the word of the Lord, Proverbs 3:15-18 15 She is more precious than rubies; nothing you desire can compare with her. 16 Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. 17 Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her; those who hold her fast will be blessed.
