On April 28, 2022, Esperanza Pantoja Cagle was called to her Heavenly home surrounded by her loving family. She was born May 1, 1927, in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico and came to the United States in 1955 when she married Harland E. Cagle from Bend, Texas.

She was known for her beautiful voice and delicious cooking as the owner of the Guadalajara Mexican Café for twenty years serving her legendary taco pies and enchiladas. She was also known for her kindness, never turning away a hungry person that was led to her doorstep for a good meal and kind word.
