Our beloved mom Frances "Weda" Garcia passed away on January 7, 2022. She went to Heaven to be with her sister Mabel Sisneros, Laura Mares, Debbie Rivera and her brother Kenneth Rivera. She is survived by her son – Robert (Helen), daughter - Nancy, sisters Lucy Samora, Martha Urioste, Tina Struck, Patricia "Patty" Gonzales, Bernadette "Bernie" Rivera, brother John " Sledge" Rivera, Alfred Rivera, grandchildren Jr (Anna), Raul, Justin, Jessica (Rick), Alyssa, Lauren, Ben, great grandchildren Jayden, Lilah, Mia, Callie, Sophie, Emerson, Camden, Eli, and Finn.
She was born and raised in Trinidad, Colorado until the age of 12 when she moved to Denver and attended Sheridan schools. She met Robert "Bob" Garcia and they were married on January 28, 1965 and had two children together, Robert and Nancy. She was a homemaker until the kids were in high school, when she went to work outside the home. She worked as a housekeeper and Nanny for several years. During that time she went through a divorce and eventually met Frank "Frankie" Lucero in 1995. They lived together as husband and wife until Frankie passed in 2019.
"Weda" enjoyed spending time with her great grandkids, gardening and watching talk shows. She also liked telling "Alexa" what to do!
