Ariana Ellena Garcia

February 23, 2013 ~ May 3, 2022 (age 9)


On Tuesday May 3rd, 2022, we unexpectedly lost our beloved daughter Ariana Garcia at the young age of 9. 

Ariana attended John Baker Elementary and was in Mrs. Esteves’ 3rd grade class. Ari’s friends in class remember her as kind, funny, and loving dragons. Her family will forever remember her as the sweetest little girl who cared so much about everyone around her. If she loved you, she loved you forever.

Ariana loved to draw, get frozen drinks after school, going to GameStop, and eating at Buffalo Wild Wings every Sunday with her dad. She loved to paint, go to the movies every Tuesday, take drives near the mountain, and jam out to music at home and in the car with her mom. Ari was the best big sister, she was always cuddling, dancing, laughing, and playing with her little sister Amaya. Ariana loved animals, especially her pet pig, Phoebe and her parrot, Elloise. She really enjoyed visiting family whether it was heading to the ranch or if she was visiting San Diego, she loved seeing and playing with all of her cousins. She loved all of her family very much. Ariana was the light of our life, and an angel on earth. She will forever be missed, and forever on our minds.

Ariana is survived by her parents, Steven and Alicia Garcia; her little sister, Amaya Garcia; maternal grandparents, Rick and Altagracia Brito; maternal great-grandparents Arturo and Maryann Padilla; her maternal aunt Jasmine Brito and cousin Mikaiel; paternal uncle José Seineke and cousins Sarah and Genevive; paternal uncle and aunt Chris and Jessica Crane and cousins Carlos, Michelle, Mariana, and Mariah; paternal uncle and aunt David Ghio and Stephanie Garcia and cousins David, Nathan, and Desiree; maternal great-uncles and aunts Alan and Shannon Padilla and cousins Alan Jr, and Alexis; Bettyann Pacheco and cousins Andres and Adrian; Arturo Padilla Jr and cousins Jewell, Kendra, Paige, TJ, and Vincenzo; Antonio and Tonibeth Padilla and cousins Antonio, Azlyn, Sarai, Irah and Nana; Andres and Samantha Padilla and cousins Averi and Ashton; Twilla and Lee Gonzales and cousins Felix, Emilio, Reanna, Luciano; maternal cousin Gene Salazar.
