Mrs. Subia was born on October 6, 1940 in Miles to Jesus M. Flores and Guadalupe O. Flores and grew up in Mertzon. She fell in love and married Santana R. Subia Sr. Mary and Santana went on to have four children, Gilbert, Eddie, Dianna and Santana Jr. Mary worked at the Reagan County Care Center for many years and later retired from there. Santana passed away on October 30, 1994.

She loved caring for all her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She spoiled them to no end. She made the best papitas fritas, Texas trash, pineapple cherry ham, and holiday candy for her family.

In 2008, she chose to make Reagan County Care Center her home as she did not want to burden anyone. During her residence at the Care Center, she was named Queen "La Reina" of the Care Center. Mary enjoyed playing bingo, loteria, and shopping at the country store. She passed her time by nurturing the other residents. She liked sitting on the porch visiting with her friends and smoking. Her favorite desserts were carrot cake and Little Debbie Zebra Cakes. She was fond of her extended family at the Care Center.

Mary was a loving mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother. She loved her friends and family dearly and will be greatly missed.
