June 19, 1937 – May 14, 2019
Elizabeth C. Garcia, 81, went home to be with our Lord and Savior on May 14, 2019. She was surrounded by all her children throughout her illness and at the time of her peaceful passing. Mom was born on June 19, 1937 in Fronton, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents Beatriz Guerra Cantu and Juan Cantu, several siblings and her husband Fidel Garcia Jr., the love of her life. Elizabeth is survived by her children: Nancy (Luis) Limas, Anna Garcia, Eloy (Ruth) Garcia, Melba (Homer) Garza, her grandchildren: Amy (Catarino) Gonzalez, David Limas, Elizabeth Limas, Cristina Garza, Jose Garza, Lauren Garcia, Eloy Garcia Jr.; her great-grandchildren: Isaiah Limas and Olivia C. Gonzalez. Elizabeth was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She enjoyed working in her yard tending to her roses and hibiscus. She loved reading especially poetry in Spanish and watching basketball games on TV. Her favorite songs were "Que Sera, Sera" and "Los Laureles". She loved getting dressed up, posing for photos and eating out especially at Koko's. Her favorite colors were red and fuchsia. Most of all, she loved spending time with family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her laughter, stories of her childhood in her beloved Fronton, her kindness, encouragement and wisdom will be greatly missed and leave an incredible void in all the lived she touched. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Ruth, Homer, Luis, Catarino and Russell for all your love and expressions of kindness for our mom during her lengthy illness.

Melba, Nancy, Ana and Eloy, I am so very sorry to hear about your mom. I have so many memories of her from my younger years growing up with Melba and I will cherish those always. She was such a beautiful, loving and cheerful soul and I always remember her generosity and just how she always made me feel welcome in her home. One thing for sure, we were never hungry at her house! She was just so wonderful.
I will pray for your family that our Lord and Savior give you peace and tranquility through this tough time. Just know, that today, she is in paradise right alongside your precious Daddy.
