Ladislada (Lala) Duran Garcia, 89, formerly of Victoria, Texas, passed away on Saturday, October 31, 2020.

She was reunited in Heaven with her daughters, Yolanda Herrera, Yolanda Herrera Longoria, Sylvia Herrera; and husbands, Eliseo Herrera and Edward Duran Sr. She is survived by her devoted and loving husband, Roberto Garcia; children, Al Herrera, Ruben Herrera, Juan Herrera (Alicia), Lydia Guerra (Joe), Severita Barrios (Antonio), Eliseo Herrera, Jr. (MaryJane), Ladislada Cortez(Ruben), Rachel Rosario, and Edward Duran Jr. She is also survived by siblings, Nicholas Casarez, Eglentina Casarez, Cleophas Casarez, and Claudina Burks. She was the proud grandmother of forty grandchildren, fifty-six great-grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren.

Born during the Great Depression, Ladislada acquired a deep sense of strength and determination that she carried with her throughout life. She gave to her family generously, loved them fiercely, and never missed a grandchild’s birthday. Ladislada was a lover of traveling, and a baseball enthusiast with an adventurous spirit that led her to find love again late in life with her husband Roberto. She will be deeply missed, but her memory will carry on through her loving influence that spans across the generations.

November 4, 2020

Mother you were my mentor in life, you taught me how to be a strong female and that there wasn’t anything in life I could not accomplish. From the strictest love I have resulted to a successful woman. You were there when I took my first breath at birth and as hard as it was, I was with you when you took your last. Love you always and in my heart you will remain. Your daughter Sheri.
