Joy Garcia-Manning, age 97, went home to be with her heavenly Father on Thursday, January 24, 2019.
Joy, the daughter, of Leandro and Beatriz Maestas, was born in Pueblo, Colorado. The family moved to New Mexico shortly thereafter.
She was a beloved mother, a loving grandmother, a devoted wife, and a caring friend. To those whose lives she touched she will be dearly missed.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her oldest daughter, Consuelo Delgado-Cordova (Pete, deceased); and her husband, Ralph Manning. She is survived by her son, Carl Garcia (Kristen); and daughters, Tina Otteni, Nina Garcia; and only grandchild, Lisa Lindquist (Ryan).
The family also wishes to express their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the staff at Atria Vista del Rio for the love, support, and compassionate care extended while our mother lived there.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Monte Vista Christian Church located at 3501 Campus Blvd NE. Her favorite color was any shade of green…so we invite you to dress accordingly if you wish.
In lieu of flowers, we thank you for your donations to The Sunflower Sanctuary Animal Rescue, as she so loved dogs.
