Mount Pleasant

Thomasa R. "Tiny" Orozco Alaniz, born May 22, 1929, in Horton, Kan., has joined her husband of 67 years in the presence of our Lord, Jesus.
For most of her 90 years Tiny enjoyed her family, extended family of Al-Anon and her involvement in various ministries in her church. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, mentor, friend and devout Catholic.
Tiny lived out her life in Horton, Kan., the Chicago area and Mount Pleasant, Iowa. In May 2019, Tiny was thrilled to celebrate her 90th birthday surrounded by family and friends.
Her life will be celebrated at a public visitation Thursday, Nov. 14 at 3:30 p.m. followed by a rosary at 6:30 p.m. at St. Alphonsus Church in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. A Mass of Christian burial will be held on Friday, Nov. 15 at 11 a.m. followed by a luncheon at St. Alphonsus Church. Private interment will be at a later date in Chicago.
Surviving Tiny are Sal and Rosalee Alaniz, Joseph Alaniz, Richard and Betsy Alaniz, Theresa and Mike Morgan and Michael Alaniz; 11 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Ruth Garcia and Jennie Sanchez.
Special thanks to Every Step Hospice and Park Place Elderly Center.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials to be given to Every Step Hospice or St. Alphonsus Catholic Church of Mount Pleasant.
