She assisted CCAD "Operation Christmas Spirit" wrapping and passing out gifts to those in nursing homes for over three decades. She was also a huge Spurs fan and could tell you the name of each player.

Carmela is survived by her loving husband of 58 years, Manuel V. Garcia, her children, Patricia Garcia (Ruben), Perla Molina (Manuel), Lewis Garcia (Missy), Priscilla Gutierrez (Abel), Martin Reyes, ten grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, eight brothers and sisters and many more loved ones too numerous to list.

Awaiting her arrival in heaven are her daughters Priscilla Garcia and Palmira Reyes, parents Luis and Antonia Garcia and her sister Irma Escobar.

She was a loving and compassionate wife and mother who had a great love for God and her church community, enjoyed working with children and always expressed love to her family unconditionally.

Carmela will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

She will be laid to rest May 21, 2020 in her hometown of Palito Blanco, TX.

Our family would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. & Mrs. Bill Dennis and all the medical staff that cared for Carmela during her illness, to the priests that ministered to her and to family and friends that showed their support with prayers, get well cards and phone calls.

A Big Thank You to our sister Priscilla Gutierrez for being the liaison between the nurses, our father and the entire family. We would have been lost without your knowledge and assistance.

Mr. Manuel, our sincere condolences for your great loss. The SSCM community has also suffered a great loss in Carmela's passing. I worked alongside Carmela, as one of a group of church ladies counting the church's tithe collections. She was a quiet and dignified lady who loved her faith and family very much. Our thoughts and prayers remain with you and your family.
Sincerely, Mary and John Alvarado
