Garcia, Manuela P.



Our beloved mother and Grandmother Manuela P. Garcia passed away in her home on Sat. May 13, 2017. She was born to Feliciano & Vicenta Porras in Presidio, TX on Feb. 23, 1921.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ben Garcia, daughter Gloria Ann Vigil, niece Carolina Montoya.

She is survived by her 3 children Maria Sylvia Romero & husband Richard, Benny Garcia and wife Maryjon, Esther Alderete and husband Pete and one surviving brother Jose Porras and wife Mary, including many grandchildren & great-grandchildren.

Her perseverance in the face of adversity throughout her life was the example she left for her children. She lived her life simply & by example & helped as many people as she could. Though her words were few, when she spoke one could not help but listen and gather strength from her wisdom and her remarkable sense of humor. She was a devout caring & honorable mother whose love for her children & grandchildren never wavered. We will miss our matriarich & her sense of purpose with her faith & in a higher power.

Pallbearers will be her grandsons & granddaughter; Vincent Vigil, Rick Romero, Tracey Vigil, Dennis Vigil, Lt. Col Adrian Romero, Deputy 1st Class Mario Alderete, Brian Garcia, and Officer 1st Class Rueben Alderete.
