Angela Garza Abrego Obituary
October 9, 1926 - December 28, 2018
Angela Garza Abrego led a life dedicated to serving God. Born to Eduviges Garcia-Lopez and Librado Garza, Angela grew up on San Antonio's West Side. By the age of 10, she had lost both parents to tuberculosis. Missionaries took in the four Garza children and sent them to Presbyterian boarding schools. Angela completed Cadet Nurse Corps training at Sage Memorial Hospital in Ganado, Arizona. The Navajo women in her class of 1947 became the first Native American women to serve in the U.S. Military, commemorated with a national monument inscribed with all the graduates' names. Angela volunteered with pre-school children and youth of Hispanic churches, from the local to the national church. She championed women and people of color. She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank Reyna Abrego, and her sister, Frances Trevino. She is survived by her brothers, Florentino and Lalo Garza, children, Rita Abrego, Debbie Matusko, Frank Anthony Abrego, Irene Abrego (Tricia Buchhorn) and Francine Cantrell, grandchildren, Jacqueline (Thane), Rachel (Philippe), and Simon; and two great-grandchildren, Addison and Cade. A memorial service will be at 11am on Sat., Jan. 19, 2019 at Divine Redeemer Presbyterian Church, 407 N. Calaveras, 78207. You're invited to sign the guestbook at www.porterloring.com
