Wife of Texas Ranger Capt. M.T. "Lone Wolf" Gonzaullas. Married fifty-seven years, untill the Captains death in 1977. Bob Stephens, a friend of Capt. Gonzaullas wrote-"Prhaps the most predominant trait Captain Gonzaullas demonstrated was his rigid and uncompromising enforcement of the law. In the course of his lifetime, he killed twenty-two men, was shot seven times, and was knifed on several occasions. He carried brass knuckles and once said, "I'd do anything in a fight." It was an understatement of fact. Because he was somewhat less than average in size, he sometimes had to prove his physical prowess to larger men. In contrast to his aggressive nature, he was gentle and compassionate toward his wife, Laura, his only relative. They were very devoted.
