The frequent trips to the Las Carmelitas Convent to buy bread for her family were never too burdensome for Yolanda Juarez. She took responsibility for helping her family and when at the convent, she would visit with the nuns who had come to know and love her.
Juarez was on her way Thursday to the convent in northwest Harris County, just seven miles away from her home, when she was struck and killed by a man driving a pickup reported stolen and being pursued by deputies. He ran a red light and collided with her Honda, killing her instantly. She was 21.
