Sanjuana Garcia

November 12, 1955 — December 16, 2021

Sanjuana Garcia, 66, de Villa Juárez, San Luis Potosí, México falleció el 16 de diciembre del 2021. Nacida el 12 de noviembre de padres Felipe  Cazares Barrón y Daria Meza Ruiz . A los 16 años de edad dejo su tan querido   hogar en Villa Juarez para ir hacia los Estados Unidos en busca de una mejor vida para sus padres y hermanos. Llegando a Estados Unidos inmediatamente se puso a trabajar para ayudar a su tan querida familia. Pasaron los años y a los 20 años de edad conoció al amor de su vida, su esposo de 41 años Onésimo Garcia “Roy”, y después de 3 años se casaron y comenzaron a crear su propia familia. Al año de casados nació su primer hijo Roy, a los dos años y medio su hijo Daniel, y a los cuatro años después su hija Sandra. Ella tuvo tres hijos biológicos pero fue madre para muchos compartiendo siempre su amor ayudando, y haciendo por los de más desinteresadamente.. Abuela a Roy Alessandro, Iliana, Andrew, Adryan, Idaliah, y el más pequeño Julián Garcia. Nunca fue una persona fiestera, para ella sus nietos siempre fueron la fiesta y le llenaba el corazón de gusto que a todos les encantaba su comida porque esa era la manera que les decía cuanto los amaba  y ellos a ella.

El 12 de noviembre del 1987 junto a su esposo compro su casa donde viviría por 33 años. Aun cuando ella no quiera esa casa su esposo le decía “Si, honey yo sé que esta fea, pero esta maciza y entre tu y yo la vamos a arreglar”. Al nacer su hija Sandra, se dedicó por tiempo completo a su familia, una ama de casa con mil trabajos. Todos los días se despertaba antes que todos para preparar el desayuno, mandar a su esposo a trabajar, llevar a sus hijos y sobrios a la escuela solamente para regresar a su casa a tumbar paredes, lijar puertas, pintar y mucho más. Su casa fue reconstruida por ella….cada pared, cada clavo, cada cuadro de piso fue tocado por ella desde el basement hasta el techo. Aun con tanto trabajo de reconstruir su casa, como por obra de magia siempre tenía la comida lista echa con tanto amor y los postres ni se diga. Siempre tubo la pasión por la cocina, esa era su manera de decir cuanto quería y amaba su familia. Sus pasa tiempos eran siempre pensando en su familia, sembrando en su jardín tomates, chiles, pepinos y más por 33 años sin falla. Le encantaba coserle ropa para su hija cuando de  niña y aun de adulta su hija  y ella, las dos se ponían a coser y hacer vestidos y disfraces para eventos de la escuela donde trabaja su hija. Le encantaba ser parte de  las aventuras y creaciones junto con su esposo, aun cuando muchas cosas le daban miedo al final se divertía. Fue una mujer sencilla pero con un gran corazón tan grande que no hay suficientes palabras para describirla y su amor. Aunque todos la vamos a extrañar mucho sabemos que está con nosotros en nuestros corazones.

Sanjuana Garcia, 66, from Villa Juárez, San Luis Potosí, Mexico passed away on December 16, 2021. Born on November 12 to parents Felipe Cazares Barrón and Daria Meza Ruiz. At 16 years of age, she left her beloved home in Villa Juarez to go to the United States in search of a better life for her parents and siblings. Arriving in the United States, she immediately started working to help her beloved family. Years passed and at age 20 she met the love of her life, her husband of 41 years, Onésimo Garcia “Roy”, and after three years they got married and began their own family. A year after they were married, their first son Roy was born, two and a half years later their son Daniel was born, and four years later their daughter Sandra was born. She had three biological children, but was a mother to many, always giving love and helping others selflessly.  Grandmother to Roy Alessandro, Iliana, Andrew, Adryan, Idaliah, and the youngest, Julián Garcia. Her grandchildren were always the party in her life, and it filled her heart with pleasure that everyone loved her food because that was the way she showed her love for them and they loved her.

On November 12, 1987, together with her husband they bought their home where she would live for 33 years. Even when she didn’t really want to buy this house, her husband would say to her "Yes, honey, I know it's ugly, but it's solid and between you and I we will fix it." When her daughter Sandra was born, she dedicated herself full time to her family, a housewife with a thousand jobs. Every day she woke up before everyone else to make breakfast, send her husband to work, take her children and nephews and niece to school only to go home to knock down walls, sand doors, paint and much more. Her house was rebuilt by her .... every wall, every nail, every square of the floor was touched by her from the basement to the roof. Even with so much work to fix up their home, as if by magic she always had the food ready always made with so much love and let’s not mention the desserts. She always had a passion for cooking, that was her way of showing how much she loved her family.  In her free time and always thinking of her family she would plant tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and more in her garden.  She did this for 33 years without fail. She loved to sew clothes for her daughter as a child and even when her daughter became an adult, her daughter and her both began to sew to make dresses, and costumes for events at the school where her daughter works. She loved being part of her husband’s adventures, even though many things scared her at the end she enjoyed it and had fun. She was a simple woman, but with a big heart so big that there are not enough words to describe her love. Although we are all going to miss her very much, we know that she will always live in our hearts.
