Updated: 5 days ago

Margaret E. Garcia, age 77, went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, surrounded by her loving family. Margaret was born in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico to Casimira Baca and Joe D. (Nicho) Cordova. Margaret married Santiago (Jimmy) Garcia in the summer of 1965 and together they had three beautiful children. She was an amazing mother, grandmother, and the best great grandmother. She enjoyed going gambling with her kids and cooking for her family. She enjoyed going to church, picking pinon, going to bingo, spending time outdoors, and keeping in touch with her friends and family. In her final days she really got to enjoy her life. She got one last gambling trip; she got a full week of her great granddaughters, and she won a raffle. Even though she was taken from us unexpectedly, Margaret lived a full life all the way to the end, and she will be dearly missed.

She is survived by her daughter Roseann (Chris) Martinez, sons Martin (Sara) Garcia, and Moses (Shelley) Garcia. Grandkids Christopher (Ashley), Lucas (Chelsea), Monica (Paul), Eric Davis, Derek (Karina), Jesse, Trey (Cristal) and Sophia.
