Barbara Rosiland Garcia, Age :79

Jul 22,1939---Apr 02,2019

Barbara Rosiland Garcia

Barbara was born July 22, 1939.  She passed away peacefully on April 2, 2019, with her beloved family at her side after a hard fought and courageous battle against Parkinsons and Cancer.

Barbara was married to Leroy Garcia for over fifty years.  She will forever be remembered by her devoted children Joseph, Lawrence (wife Nickole), and Loretta. Barbara treasured her grandchildren Isabella, Marcos, Viviana, and Lorenzo.  She is also survived by her brother Eugene Valdez (wife Corinne).  She is preceded in death by her parents Candido and Teresa Valdez, and brother Roman Valdez.    

Our hearts are full of gratitude as we say many thanks to our family, friends, and neighbors for all their prayers and acts of kindness towards Barbara.   Barbara was well known for her love for the arts. She used her God given talents to teach many cultural dances like ballet, Flamenco, and Matachines, to name a few.  Barbara’s last words were “be kind.” She had a big heart and loved everyone.  Our family is thankful to God for such a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. 

Services for Barbara Garcia will be held on Thursday, April 25, 2019 at Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe in Pojoaque, NM.  Rosary will be held at 10:00am, followed by the funeral Mass at 11:00am. 

May the good Lord bless and keep you until we meet again.
