Mother, teacher, sister, practitioner, lover of animals and all nature, Betty Garcia, passed away at home in the loving company of her daughter, Kate and brother, Tom. Betty was a giving, loving, friend and an example of faith in Love and God to all those who were blessed to know her. For over 20 years, Betty shared her time and love, touching the lives of many students from elementary age through adult.
She was at total peace with the upcoming transition, looking forward to being with her mom again and of course being one with Spirit. It all happened quickly and she often said, “All of this is Divinely guided. This is just perfect”
The message she left for her daughter, Kate, was, “I love you desperately. Katie, you are the most important person in my life.”
When she passed, her brother Tom said, “She is going to get run over by all the animals at the Rainbow bridge!” She was a St Francis of sorts and throughout out her life she had countless animals for which she loved and cared.
Betty was very involved at CSLSR in the Heart in Hand ministry, serving our community in this capacity for many years. Another of her favorite projects was which providing backpacks for children going back to school and collected much needed classroom supplies for teachers. She continuously studied and took classes at the center.
She will be remembered with much respect, love and admiration. Betty was a teacher to her last days, modeling not only how to die with grace and peace, but teaching us all that it is possible to end this lifetime with a sense of gratitude, excitement and anticipation about what will be next.
