Monica Garcia was born on September 16, 1963. She is an Arizona native, born and raised in Tempe. She was beautifully surrounded by family as she joined our Heavenly Father on January 22, 2021 after a hard fought, nearly 2 year battle with gastric cancer. Monica touched many lives with her beautiful smile, her big heart, and the strength she showed during her fight. She is preceded in death by her Father Carlos. She is survived by her husband Darrin, her Mother Frances; her five sisters Adeline, Theresa, Connie, Ceca, and Carla; two daughters Stephanie and Jami; and six grandchildren Phynix, Logan, Hadli, Skarlet, Avery and Hunter. She will always be remembered for her contagious laughter, her adventurous spirit and love for her grandchildren. She is deeply loved and dearly missed.
A Celebration of Life is to be held by invitation only. Please contact the family for further information about services, donations and flowers.
