Rebecca "Becky" Ann Moreno, above all else, had a giving heart. She was a Christian woman who was a nurturing, loving, strong, and selfless person. She dedicated her life to loving her husband, raising her six children and spoiling her grandchildren, especially with affection. As the matriarch of the family, she always showed her endless support and true love that will forever live on through her entire family. Although she was super short in size, her heart was enormous. She made sure to teach her children and grandchildren to always be thankful for their blessings, no matter how big or small. She always had others in mind and found joy in putting a smile on others faces, even if it meant she would have to go without. There were many things that Becky loved, but her family was what she loved the most. She was so proud to see the successes of her children and grandchildren over the years and wasn't shy to share the news with anyone who would listen.

Becky, as most of us knew her, fought a year and a half long battle with Pancreatic Cancer after leading a normal healthy life before her diagnoses. She eventually succumbed to this illness on Thursday, April 22, 2021 when she took her last earthly breath at her home in Banquete, Texas holding her husband’s hand and surrounded by her children.

We are sure that as she was welcomed into Heaven by the Lord, He made good on his promise that she would one day see her family members again. As she walked hand in hand with the Lord, she was reuinted and embraced by her parents, David and Elijia Garcia; her two brothers, Mario Arturo Garcia and Arturo R. Garcia; her brother-in-law, John Flores and her sister-in-law, Nora Garcia and her parents-in-law, Lino Moreno, Sr. and Margarita Rios Peralta.

Becky is the daughter of the late David Garcia and Elijia Ruiz Garcia. She was born on August 6, 1954 in Banquete, Texas and was one of fourteen children. She married the love of her life, Lino Moreno, Jr. on April 25, 1971 and together they raised six children for the most part in Banquete. Becky seized every opportunity she had to find a good yard sale up until the day she was too weak to walk. She would spend hours in the car searching for the perfect spot and always left with gifts for everyone else but herself. She always brought her grandchildren, and other kids in the family, toys and clothing and was so happy to see the excitement on their faces. Any chance she got, she was buying lottery tickets for her chance to win big. She donated a lot of her time to helping the local food banks and colonia organization and residential neighborhood. She was always thinking of what she could do to make sure friends and family she knew were taken care of. She would even visit the hospital to see them if they were ever admitted, even if it meant her being on and waiting for the bus for hours, to get there and back. She was a saver as well…no, not of money, but of her grandchildren’s keepsakes like their first haircut hair, baptismal dresses, childhood outfits, the teeth they lost, and much more!

Becky leaves her family with many great memories and they have faith they instilled in them that they will one day reunite at the gates of Heaven with many hugs and kisses.

Never forgetting her life and memories are her husband of 50 years, Lino Moreno, Jr. of Banquete; four sons, Lino (Lori Ramirez) Moreno, III, of Robstown, Texas, Jimmy (Gloria Tober) Moreno of Alfred, Texas, Adam (Selina) Moreno of Falfurrias, Texas and John Paul (Juanita) Moreno of Fulshear, Texas; two daughters, Cynthia (Ricardo) Flores of Annaville, Texas and Martha Moreno Beazley of Banquete; four brothers, David (Linda) Garcia, Jr. of Banquete, Hector Garcia of Orange Grove, Pablo (Rosa) Garcia of College Station, Texas, and Ernesto (Amanda) Garcia of Banquete; seven sisters, Juanita Elena (Fernando) Rojas of Banquete, Texas, Maria Diana (Ricardo) Rodriguez of Hanford, California, Rosaenna (Andres) Arsola of Corpus Christi, Texas, Maria De La Luz Garcia of Banquete, Texas, Elia Flores of Buda, Texas, Leticia (Joseph) Garcia-Bayarena of Corpus Christi, Texas, Elena Mata of Buda, Texas; 26 grandchildren, Shelby (Mario, Jr.) Rendon, Lino (Hope Ranley) Moreno, IV, David Moreno, Alicia Bella Moreno, Jonathan Palacios, Abraham (Shyanne) Palacios, Abdel Palacios, Jr., Nicolas Jimenez, Emilio Jimenez, Selina (Daniel Harsila) Jimenez, Daniel Jimenez, Jimmy Moreno, Jr., Adrian Beazley, Bobby Beazley, Leticia Beazley, Alexis (Jason) Garcia, Adam Moreno, Jr., Ariel Moreno, Aaron Moreno, Kaziah DeLeon, Quinley Moreno, Samuel Moreno, Frank Tober, Rosendo Tober, Tomas De Los Santos and Crystal De Los Santos; eight great grandchildren with one on the way and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.

Thank you for being my momma. I couldn’t have asked for a bigger fan and supporter. No matter what I was going though you were there to pick me up and tell me it’s ok mijo or try a little harder next time and you got it. There was nothing negative to ever come out your mouth just love.

I remember when I would get home from school you would always have these amazing sandwiches ready for me.... ya a sandwich right... I’ve always tried to make it as good as you did but I know now it’s the touch of a loving mother that made it the best.

I remember the look on your face and the excitement you had when we told you about Samuel.... oh how I wish he could of had more time with you... he is going to miss you so so much momma

Thank you momma for making me the man I am today. Thank you for being the best mom a son could ask for. Thank you and I love you for all eternity and un dia I will meet you again at heavens gate. I love you momma

Mom,
Thank you for never judging me or treating me any less that a daughter. When I met Adam and he introduced us you made me feel so welcome. I remember that next time or so you asked if I was hungry because I was coming over to visit after work. I told Adam to tell you yes (because I was shy ;)) and you made conchitas for me. I had never eaten that in my life that I could remember and I told you how good they were. Everytime you knew I was coming over you would tell Adam to ask me if I wanted some. My answer was always yes. They were the best!

Thank you forgiving and helping raise the kids as they were younger. They always talked about you being their second mom and how much they loved you.

You took in Kaziah with open arms after just meeting him one time and he was already calling you his "grandma Becky".

I love you and I am so grateful for the son you raised ❤ the son I get to treasure and cherish and love. He learned his values and his heartfelt, giving soul comes from you. He is a great Husband and father and son as I saw him be with you. Thank you for being such a blessing in the time I got to know you and for always having your door and house open to us.

I'm sad Quinley doesn't get to have you for longer but I'll remind her of you always.

Moreno/Garcia Family -I'm so sorry that mom had to go so soon, so young. We never know the answers as to why one person over another but we just have to have faith that God has his reasons. Love y'all and I'm here for whatever you need.

Xoxo, Selina Garza Moreno
