Femia Garcia

1914 - 2015 Obituary Condolences

Femia Garcia, 101, passed away peacefully on Thursday, October 8, 2015. She was born on July 19, 1914 to Cipriana and Conrado Salazar, Sr. in Tularosa, N.M.

Femia was a very active member of her church, Our Lady of the Light Catholic Church. Always civic minded, she actively participated in fundraising and other activities, always with her community in mind.

She knew no strangers. She was always ready to welcome anyone who visited with a hug, a smile and a warm meal.
The joy of her life was always her family, with many of whom she shared travels. Femia loved to travel. One of her fondest memories was her trip to Mexico City, where she took the pilgrimage to Our Lady of Guadalupe with then Bishop, Ricardo Ramirez.

Her hobbies included praying, gardening, traveling and visiting with family and friends. And, she was always ready to visit a casino.
Femia is survived by her four children, Stella Aguilar, Clara Silva (Edward), Arturo Garcia (Maggie), and Loli Telles (Sammy); 17 grandchildren, 30 great grandchildren and 28 great-great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents Cipriana and Conrado Salazar, Sr.; her husband, Cipriano Garcia; a son, Robert Garcia; son-in-law, Leo Aguilar; and her four siblings, Ophelia Whitehead, Elvira Garcia, Conrado Salazar, Jr., and Lily Aguirre.

The family will greet family and friends on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of the Light Catholic Church in La Luz, N.M. Rosary will be recited at 10:30 a.m. with Funeral Mass to follow at 11:00 a.m. Burial will follow at the La Luz Catholic Cemetery. A reception will follow at the La Luz Community Center after services.

The Garcia family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home to direct the services.
