Theresa Ybaro Garcia

August 11, 1957 - May 2, 2020

Theresa Ybarbo Garcia, a medication aid and long-time resident of Alleyton, Texas passed away from a heart attack on May 2, 2020 while in an assisted rehabilitation facility in San Marcos, Texas. She was 62 years old.

Theresa is survived by her husband Edward Joe Garcia; son John Edward and his wife Brenda and their two sons, Evan and Eddie; youngest son Andrew Michael and his children Jayden and Tessa. She is also survived by her sister Connie and several nieces and nephews.

Theresa Garcia was born in Goliad, Texas to Esther and Juan Ybarbo. She grew up in the small town of Goliad, Texas; best known for the great Battle of Goliad during the Texas Revolution in 1835. She had 2 older siblings Lupe and Connie and a younger sister named Delmira (Dee). In 1968, when Theresa was 10 years old, her father was transferred to Columbus, Texas because of work. Here she made lots of friends and graduated from Columbus High School in 1975. From there she went on to become a medication aid for many years. In 1985 she married Edward Garcia and later that year they welcomed their 1st son, John Edward in August. Four years later in 1989 they welcomed their second child Andrew Michael. A few years passed and she started working for Meals on Wheels where she worked for 12 years until her first grandchild was born in August of 2008.

Some of Theresa's favorite pass times were playing chicken foot, dominos, candy crush on her phone, and she absolutely loved Bingo! She loved spending time with her family and grandkids and watching the Andy Griffith show.

Theresa was a loving wife, mother, sister, and aunt. Even though she only had two children she was a second mother to many of her nieces and nephews. Edward was the love of her life, but she had a second half to her, her niece Erika Espitia. Erika was often her confidant, best friend, and without a doubt her favorite!

Theresa will be deeply missed by many. Her memory will live on forever because of the love and dedication she showed for everyone.
