Wanda Maxine Garcia, 71, of Crosby, Texas, passed away Sunday, January 10, 2021. She was born Monday, September 26, 1949, to Alice Lorene Sexton. She attended Westport High in Kanas City Missouri where she met the love of her life Anthony Felipe Garcia. Wanda attended San Jacinto College where she obtained her Cosmetology License.
She was a very loving family-oriented woman, selfless in every step of her life. When you were down, she was able to encourage you without hesitation, and calmly and quietly listened to everything you had to say. Her pride and joy were spending time with her grandchildren, which were her complete focus. She loved to travel and go shopping with friends and family. She was a beautiful soul who always put God and family first.
In 2019 Wanda was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church. Wanda loved the Lord with all her heart, soul, and mind. Her hunger for God was sated as with the choice of food.
Psalm 63: 1-4…
O God, you are my God-
it is you I seek!
For you my body yearns;
for you my soul thirsts,
In a land parched, lifeless,
and without water.
I look to you in the sanctuary
to see your power and glory.
For your love is better than life;
my lips shall ever praise you!
