Evangelina G. Yañez

Evangelina G. Yañez, passed from this life into the next on Sunday, July 17th in the 2022 year of our Lord, at the age of 66.  

She dealt with several medical issues in the final years of her life.  Her body may have perished, but her sprit has been made new.  She will not be remembered by her infirmities, but rather as a devoted servant, submissive wife, selfless mother and loving grandmother and great-grandmother. 

Accepting, forgiving, impartial, hospitable, discerning, wise, confidant; these words were echoed with gratitude as goodbyes were expressed during her final hour.

She was a simple person, without lofty ambitions.  She did not strive for material wealth, but rather stored up her treasures for eternity.  She was a woman of faith, who trusted in our Father’s providence.

She upheld a devotion to our blessed Mother, which was passed on to her by her mother.  A strong faith is the legacy she passes on to those who grieve her loss the most.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Claro Garcia, Sr .and Pola Gomez Garcia; and her siblings, Claro Garcia, Jr., George Garcia, Sr., Jose Luis Garcia, Sr. and Ruben Garcia.

She is survived by her husband of 49 years, Maurilio Yañez. Sr., sons Maurilio Yañez, Jr. and daughter-in-law Thipwanee.; Jesse Yañez and daughter-in-law Marta, daughters, Patricia Yañez Soto and son-in-law Ruben.; Melissa Yañez, Delia Serrano and son-in-law George Sr., and Velia Yañez; grandchildren, Samantha Gay Yañez, Maurilio Yañez, III, Miranda Yañez, Mireya Yañez, Genesis Faith Soto, Ariel Divine Soto, Christian Perez (Jovana), Miracle Angel Soto, Elijah Elisha Soto, Allyanah Raquel Vela, Mariyela Evangelina Vela, Priscilla Serrano and George Serrano, Jr.; great grandchildren, Ruben Jesse Soto, Rosalinda Perez, Sofia Perez and Elias King Navarro, as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
