Lancarte, Hope Garcia - Fort Worth  
On Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, Hope Garcia Lancarte, a true and respected pioneer in the restaurant business, passed from this world into the loving arms of her heavenly Savior. She was surrounded by her adoring children, grandchildren and her devoted soulmate, Frank Munoz. The matriarch of the Garcia-Lancarte family and Joe T. Garcia's restaurant, "Hope," as she was affectionately known, was born in Fort Worth in 1928, the daughter of Joe T. and Jessie Garcia. Memorial service: 11 a.m. Monday, Dec. 1, at Christ Chapel Bible Church, 3701 Birchman Ave., celebrating her incredible life and legacy. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to All Saints Health Foundation in support of the Annette C. and Harold C. Simmons Transplant Institute at Baylor All Saints Medical Center. Hope originally married the late Paul Lancarte and they had seven children, Lanny, David, Zurella, Joe, Jesse, Phillip and Elizabeth, all of whom worked by her side in the renowned Joe T. Garcia's Restaurant. Hope was the CEO of Joe T. Garcia's Enterprises, Inc., which includes Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Restaurant, Esperanza's Bakery & Cafe, Joe T. Garcia's Hot Sauce and Esperanza's Wholesale Bread Division. In 1912, her father immigrated to Fort Worth from Mexico. In 1914, he worked as butcher and had a small grocery store. In 1935, Joe T. along with his wife, Jessie Garcia, opened a one-room, Mexican restaurant on the north side of Fort Worth at the location of what is now known as Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Dishes restaurant, or "Joe T's" to the many loyal customers and visitors from all over the world. Upon Joe T.'s death, Hope assumed responsibility for the operation of Joe T's. For many years, Hope lived above the restaurant and could be found in the original kitchen overseeing food preparation and servers as well as greeting the many loyal patrons who enjoyed the festive patio and world famous Mexican food. Over the years, she worked tirelessly with her children to grow and expand Joe T's. Hope and her children subsequently expanded her family business to include Esperanza's and a salsa division. The restaurant now covers nearly an entire city block, serves thousands of customers a month and will celebrate its 80th anniversary on July 4, 2015. Hope often said she was "blessed with a large, wonderful family and a very successful business." She was a member of All Saints Catholic Church and attributed her success to "hard work, but most importantly the grace of God." She was extremely proud of the many honors Joe T's received, including the first "American Regional Classic" Award from the James Beard Foundation, the "Family Business of the Year" award from the Baylor University Institute of Family Business, and the "Philanthropic Corporation of the Year" award from the National Society of Fundraising Executives. Joe T's has merited accolades by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, including the Best Outdoor Dining and Best Margaritas, received a "Best Gardens" award from the Fort Worth Botanical Society and it is a member of the Texas Restaurant Association's Hall of Fame. A steadfast supporter of the Fort Worth community, Joe T's has hosted for 35 years the "Fiesta de Oro" benefiting the Lena Pope Home, the Noche de Fiesta benefiting Cassata Learning Center for many years, and Hope and her children sponsored an annual Christmas toy drive for the benefit of H.O.P.E. Farm. Through the generosity of Hope and her family, more than $10 million has been raised through benefit events at Joe T's. The Lancarte family expresses special thanks to the eighth-floor nursing staff and Dr. Natalie Murray, Dr. Luis Martinez and Dr. Angelita Yango at Baylor All Saints Medical center. Hope was preceded in death by her parents, Joe T. and Jessie Garcia and son, David. Survivors: Son, Lanny and his wife, Jody; daughter, Zurella; son, Joe and his wife, Hollie; son, Jesse and wife, June; son, Phillip wife, Heidi; and daughter, Elizabeth; 22 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; soulmate, Frank Munoz; and sister, Mary Christian.
