Also preceding her was her beloved niece Lucille whom she raised as her own. She is survived by her brother Abedon Garcia and sisters-in-law Rose Garcia and Berlinda Trujillo. Although she never married or had any children of her own, she was essential in raising at least four generations of nieces and nephews. We were all truly blessed and grateful to have had her in our lives for this incredible length of time. She was deep in her faith, an example to us all.
