Garcia, Francella M.

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”.

Funeral Services for Francella Marie Garcia will start with a Rosary Service at 7:00 P.M., Thursday, April 14, 2016 at Queen of Heaven Catholic Church. A funeral mass will begin at 10:00 A.M., on Friday, April 15, 2016 also at Queen of Heaven Catholic Church with interment following at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.

Francella always came into the Shawnee Trail office with a smile because she and Nick would be spending time with you, Justin. You could tell you two were the loves of her life but she brought a happiness to all she met. She will be missed! I pray knowing she made a difference in so many lives gives you comfort.

I am deeply saddened by Francella's passing, she was a great example of a loving mother, and a true friend. Her sons Justin & Nick were her top priority, she was a valued member of the community, and will always be remembered watching her sons play tennis. Francella attended every event they had, she will forever have a place in my heart. Rest in Peace my dear friend. The Titan Tennis Family as well as my own is grateful you entered our lives and sad that you departed so soon. Melissa

Francella,
Godspeed my beloved friend. I reflect on all of our memories together over these past 18 years. You will be truly missed my dear, by me and my kids... for you always were there for us as we raised our families together. Thanks for the many smiles throughout the years.
I love you, Justin and Nick and I will always be here for the boys.
You are the Best Mother in the world and dedicated your life to Justin and Nick making sure they had everything, but mostly your love.
I will miss all of our walks and talks, but mostly my true friend.

Justin and Nick, you two are like family to us, and we are here for you both. We love you boys, always.
Dickie, I hope that comfort finds you in all of the memories during this difficult time. My arms are always open to you all and we are here for you and the boys with love and support.

Our hearts are hurting and we are so devastated. We have a hole in our hearts, but Francella will always remain inside our hearts.
If only our arms could reach heaven...
I will forever miss you, my sweet dear friend....
