Lovetta Jean Garcia
February 22, 1939 – February 7, 2019
Lovetta Jean Garcia was born in Huntington, W VA nearly 80 years ago on February 22,1939. After surviving a difficult childhood and a few bad marriages, she met the love of her life in Bremerton in 1978. After Bill and Lovi married, they moved to San Diego, where he continued his military career, and she began one in the VA Hospital as a secretary. In 1986 they moved to Marysville, where she lived out her life enjoying the natural beauty of the great PNW, and the company of their family and friends. She enjoyed watching every imaginable sport, eating at IHOP, completing the Times crossword puzzle in pen, and the love of every one of her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. On February 7 she finally let loose the bonds of this earth. She is preceded in death by her parents, (Lucy Metcalf Smith and William Garland Napier), and her brothers (Bill Napier and Jerry Smith). She is deeply mourned by her husband William, her daughters Angela, Pamela, and Deborah, her grandchildren Jason, Michael, Johnny, Nicholas, David, Christopher, Christine, and Michelle, and her great-grandchildren Zander, Leona, Joshua, Noah, and Penelope, in addition to her 3 step-children, their 7 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Services will be held at 11:00 on February 16, 2019 at Schaefer Shipman Funeral Home, located at 804 State Avenue, Marysville, WA 98270. Burial will take place at Marysville Cemetery. If preferred, in lieu of flowers we ask that her favorite charities be considered, such as Northwest Harvest or St Jude’s.

I send my voice. I send prayers up for Lovi’s good journey back to the stars! A good-hearted woman. A beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She brought my brother back from the brink of the abyss after the Vietnam conflict and a broken heart with the power of LOVE. I will forever be grateful to this dear woman. Journey safely.
Monte and I send our deepest condolences to my brother Bill and Lovi’s daughters Pamela, Angela and Deborah.
