In loving memory of Dolores Senádia Garcia who passed away on February 25, 2023 at the age of 76. Dolores was born November 16, 1946 in Grants, NM to Bernabel and Dulcinea “Diddy” Vallejos. Dolores is survived by: her loving husband Clarence Garcia (married for 56 years), children Fabian Garcia, Rhonda Montaño and husband Daniel Montaño, Leroy Garcia; granddaughters Britny Montaño, Brooke Garcia, Janelle Garcia, Brianna Garcia, and great granddaughter Alaia Molina; siblings Helen Smith, Lucille Matthews, Cheryl Torres, Bernabel Jr., and Paul Vallejos. She was the eldest of eight siblings. Preceded in death by Bernadette Peña and David Vallejos.
After 15 years, Dolores retired from the Good Samaritan to happily spend her life watching her granddaughters grow. She enjoyed traveling to the mountains, riding the side by side, visiting her family around the country, and watching the Rams play in both St. Lous and Los Angeles. She was full of life, stories, and witty comments.
Our family would like to thank everyone for their love and support during this difficult time. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the following people for years of making Dolores comfortable: George, Kiana, Luther, and dialysis staff; Dr. Rochas and PMS medical staff; and Dr. Gurule and staff.
Burial will follow at Grants Memorial Park at 2PM.
Pallbearers will be her granddaughters. Honorary Pallbearers are Thomas Molina and Daniel Montaño.
Mom, nana, you will forever be missed. “I love you hun,” Clarence Garcia.
