Gloria A. Garcia, 94, died Monday September 2, 2019 at Garden Valley Retirement Village in Garden City, Kansas. She was born November 17, 1924 the daughter of Julian & Sylveria (Rodriquez) Alonzo in Lamar, Colorado.

Gloria grew up and attended school in Lamar. She met Epifanio “Pete” Garcia at a dance in Syracuse. They married on October 3, 1946 in Garden City. He died on January 24, 2007. They started a family, and while he worked and played in various bands, she cared for the family. She loved to cook and felt the need to put a little meat on anyone’s bones. Her homemade tortillas were a neighborhood favorite. She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, and embroidery. She didn’t mince words and was always very direct. Her giggle was one of a kind. She was a talented artist, drawing even in her later years. She was a devout Catholic and was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church. In addition to her husband she was preceded in death by her siblings, Alejandro Alonzo, Dario Alonzo, Frank Alonzo, Magdalena Gomez, Pauline Oviedo, Phyllis Jacobs, Lola Alvillar & Bessie Agredano.

She is survived by her children

Epifanio “Eppy” (Elaine) Garcia Jr. of Garden City

Your Cousins in California have you in our prayers. The last of the generation and it is hard to say goodbye. We know our Grandma Lola is there in heaven to welcome her. We will say Mass for Aunt Gloria here at St Catherine Laboure in California and I have asked that they remember her again at St. Mary. My Dad Butch would say "Family is always connected by blood no matter how far you go you will always be a part of us." We love you all and may perpetual light shine upon you. Jeanne, Marc, Andy & Loretta Alvillar
