Dorothy "Dee Dee" Denise Garcia, From Sylmar CA passed after battling Leukemia.

She is survived by her daughter Cynthia Tellez and two granddaughters Alexis and Olivia Tellez Her Brother and Sister in law Danny and Elena Garcia Many nieces and two nephews

Her diagnosis shocked her family but she faced her treatment with courage and positivity. She spent her days in the hospital making her nurses and doctors laugh, always keeping them on their toes. To have know her is to have loved her. She touched and made lasting impressions on most everyone she met.

Dee Dee built her career from an assembly line to a senior buyer position. She was not the kind to take handouts from anyone and one of her biggest strengths was her work ethic.

She was the matriarch of her family, consisting mostly of girls. She lead with a fun and sometimes stern hand. She was especially close to her late father, taking trips to Vegas and Laughlin; the best of gambling buddies. She was the best mom always putting her daughter's needs before hers, the type of mom who is your best friend. She wasn't a boring grandma but was a cool Nana. When her sister passed 14 years ago she became a mother figure to her nieces. She was the type of parent and aunt your could tell anything to and always had an open door. She was a fierce friend. Enjoying a many of camping trips and building a bond with her friends that would rival even the closest sisters. The loss of Dee Dee is immeasurable but so is the love left behind.

My Deepest & Sincere Condolences to Cynthia , Alexis, Olivia , Selena, Adrienne , Julie, & Family. My heart aches without her here. But I’m at Peace knowing she is no longer suffering. I will miss my Loca . Her loud voice, her kissing me on the mouth to make guys squirm, her smashing my face into her boobs because that’s as high as I reached. But most of all I’ll miss what a Loyal , caring, & giving Friend she was. She always had good advice and was a good listener . My continued Prayers go out to all you Girls for strength to go on, hope that the days will get easier, & Peace in your hearts that your Mom, Nana, & Auntie is in a Better place watching over you all.
Love you all
Angela 🙏🏼🧡

My sincerest sympathy to Cynthia, Alexis and Olivia in the passing of their rock, their helper, their mother. I pray that caring friends comfort your grieving hearts. She was an amazing woman who loved life, loved people, helped so many women, built their self-esteem, brought joy in their life and put them before herself. She was so humble, generous, loving, caring and loyal to those she loved. I appreciate and am grateful for having been a big part of her life. Even in her illness she inspired me. Courageous, fearless, hopeful and so positive. I hope she awoke the heavens with her boisterous presence. Heaven is her home now. Rest in eternal peace Dee Dee. I love you.
