Our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother Paulina, age 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on October 30, 2022. She is finally reunited with our Lord and Savior. She was preceded in death by her parents, Consuelo and Emeterio Garza; sisters, Blanca Vargas and Alicia Ferguson and brother, Luis Garza. She is survived by her sons, David Valencia (Elvira), Ignacio Valencia (Diana) and daughters, Virginia Valencia and Iris Gardea; daughter-in-law Lizeth Valencia; 6 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
She was born in Juarez, Chihuahua MX in 1944 and made her way to San Francisco, CA where she had her 1st child. She settled in El Paso soon after and raised her 4 children. As a single mother, she worked hard to provide for them, and ensure they lived their best lives. In her later years she enjoyed traveling to San Francisco, San Jose, San Diego, and Las Vegas visiting family. She loved music, dancing, Chinese food, watching novellas, and her cats. But most of all she loved her family. She will be dearly missed, but her legacy will continue on through her loved ones.
A celebration of life will be held at San Jose Funeral Home on Monday, November 7th, 2022 from 4pm-8pm. As per our mother’s request, she is asking for all of us to wear white tops.
As per family’s request, in lieu of flowers, donations in her honor can be made to Project Amistad’s Client, Health and Welfare fund. Thank you.
