She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Enriqueta was the kindest person one could meet, always supportive, generous and willing to help; Enriqueta will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
Enriqueta found happiness in many things. For several years, she coached Men’s, Women’s, and co-ed softball and enjoyed coaching co-ed volleyball. She loved watching her daytime soap operas and the Hallmark Channel, playing card games, Loteria and the penny slots at the casinos. She brought her family and friends together with her wonderful cooking and celebrations. She will forever be remembered for her hard work, her dedication to her family and most of all, her smile.

She is also survived by her 20 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren.

Enriqueta Flores Garcia

I remember that everytime I would visit grandma she would make tortillas for me. I always asked her to show me how to make them and she would say a little bit of this and a little bit of that. I would laugh and tell her that her little bit of this and little bit of that(her hand was her measuring cups) are different sizes..

You are always remembered and a big part of our lives.
