Francella Marie Garcia, age 55, died unexpectedly on Saturday, April 2, 2016, in Frisco Texas. She was the loving mother of Justin A. Garcia and Nicacio “Nick” Garcia, both of Frisco. She was the youngest daughter of Paul and Bessie Garcia of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Besides her sons she is survived by her brothers David L. Garcia, Rueben Garcia, Vincent Garcia, Lennie Garcia, Richard “Dikki” Garcia and sister Debbie Atler, all of Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Francella attended Governor Bent Elementary as well McKinley Junior High and graduated from Del Norte High School in 1979. She moved to Frisco, Texas over 23 three years ago and it was here that she raised her two boys, doubling up as a soccer and karate mom and then an avid tennis fan to her son Justin at Centennial High School. She attended every school function at every school that her sons attended and the pride of her life was touring OU where Justin was enrolled. Justin plans on being a senior at OU next year. Though life became tough for the three of them Francella did her best to see that her kids had everything, often times going without basic necessities. A few months back Justin brought home a female puppy “Lucky” which they all treasured. Though they did not have much they had the only thing that really mattered in life and that was love for each other.
As Nick himself expressed: “Even though Mom and I had our ups and downs, I still loved her for what she did. She made my Brother and I number 1, and always first before her. She made sure that my Brother and I were loved by her. After everything she has done or did I still love her for the fact that she made us happy. I will never forget what she has done for me and my brother”.
