Obituary Condolences

Marie Beatrice Garcia Childers went to our Lord Sunday, March 2, 2008. She was born Dec. 18, 1918, in Corpus Christi, Texas. She is preceded in death by her parents, numerous brothers, sisters and her husband of 34 years, Lt. Houston Joseph Childers, Navy (retired), who passed away July 13, 1984. She leaves behind daughters Pamela E. Hall, of Alamogordo, and Yvette Childers, of Plano, Texas; Fred E. Wallis, of Alamogordo; grandsons Joseph M. Applewhite of Houston, Jesse C. Childers, of Oklahoma City, Okla., Matthew T. Hall, of Gadsden, Ala., and granddaughter Amelia Marie Hall, of Gadsden, Ala.; one great-granddaughter, Piper Applewhite, of Houston; brothers Gilberto Garcia and wife, Rose, of Corpus Christi, Texas, and Paul Salinas and wife, Toni, of Victoria, Texas; and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
She was a very devoted Catholic, wife and mother. She will be sorely missed by her family and friends. Always giving and never taking, her heart was always open to listen to others. Marie was a dedicated and supportive military wife who inspired adaptability and courage in those who knew her. Prior to her passing, she endured with exemplary courage the effects of rheumatoid arthritis. Never complaining but accepting her own illness, she was truly a living, breathing prayer. There is no greater tribute that could be given her than this.
Recitation of the rosary will be at 5:15 p.m. Friday, March 7, 2008, and will be followed immediately by a funeral Mass at St. Jude's Chapel, 1404 College Lane, Alamogordo, NM 88310. Interment will be with her husband in Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C.
Cremation will take place locally at PCS entrusted to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home.
