Dora Cantu-Garcia, age 99, of Kingsville, TX. went peacefully to be with our Lord and Savior on July 9, 2021.
Dora was born August 26, 1921 in Tienditas, TX. to Toribio Cantu and Isabel Garcia-Cantu. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. Dora married Luciano Garcia in 1941 and established residence in Kingsville, TX. where they would raise their family.
Preceding her in death were her husband, parents, brothers, Noe, Louis, Humberto, Toribio and Homero Cantu, and great granddaughters, Alyssa and Alexandra Ramirez.
Left to cherish the fond memories of her rich and vibrant life are her 5 children; Homero Garcia (Peggy) of Kingsville, TX., Maria (Pique) Ramirez (Tomas) of Hebbronville, TX., Luciano Garcia Jr. (Esperanza) of Edinburg, TX., Mario Garcia of Kingsville, TX., and Phillip Garcia (Mia) of Brownsville, TX. She was also blessed with 16 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. Her surviving siblings include Leonila Rubio, Olga Elizondo, Esther Hinojosa and Nelda Colmenero; special friend Vicki Wilson
She was a dedicated wife and mother, working diligently in various retail stores not retiring from secular work until the rich age of 90. She was also an active member of Saint Martin's Catholic Church in Kingsville. Her resilience and vigor stemmed from the everyday pleasures of life such as when she and her siblings utilized the family horse as transportation to and from school. She often spoke fondly of life experiences that instilled in her values of hard work, intrepidness and resiliency as she worked on the family dairy farm and fields. The outstanding success of all her children is a testament to the depth of her character. Dora touched the lives of so many and as the sun set on her precious life she will be dearly missed by all.
