Antonia L. Garcia, age 86, went to be with the Lord on Saturday 12/29/18 in her home in Elverta, CA. She was born to Jesse and Lucy Luna, she had 9 brothers and sisters. In 1950, she met Alvaro Z. Garcia. In 1951, they were wed and began their family in Clarksburg, CA, eventually moving to Elverta, CA. Together they had six children, Alvaro Jr. (Patty), Roy (Gloria), Rose Marie, Renee, Allan (Desiree) and Ruben (Rita); they had 18 grandchildren and a host of great-grandchildren. Antonia is survived by her children, Roy (Gloria), Renee and Ruben; grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Antonia will be greatly missed by her loved ones. She was a woman of faith characterized by her love, loyalty and care towards her family. She was a woman who showed her love with her actions. Whether it be with a plate of home cooked food, a bag of tortillas when you left, or by her prayers on your behalf. As a woman of faith, she was marked by prayer, teaching her children to pray to the Lord. She was a woman whose impact will leave a void in the hearts of all who knew her. Our hearts will miss her words of "I love you and Good Night" as well as her constant presence and prayers over us. A memorial service is scheduled for 10am on January 12th at Thrive Church in Elk Grove, CA. Followed by an interment at Saint Mary's Church, 58th Street in Sacramento, CA
