Adelfa A. Garza passed away peacefully in the early evening of Friday, September 15, 2017 at the age of 93. She is survived by her daughter, Norma Mouton, and her son, David Garza, along with their respective spouses, Jay and Angela. She also leaves behind three grandsons, Raymond Mouton, Matthew Garza and Andrew Garza. Adelfa earned her Associate of Arts degree from Wayland Baptist University. She worked for over 15 years as an accounts technician at Kelly Air Force Base now Joint Base San Antonio. She was married to Jose Garza for 22 years. He preceded her in death in 1979 and she continued to reside in the home they had made together until her health no longer permitted her to be alone.
It counts as a credit to her that she raised two children with strong Christian values. Her grandchildren follow in those same traditions. She believed that her Christian duty was to evangelize family first and help her fellow Christians any way she could. These things she did.
