Katrina Maria Garcia, 49, of Amarillo, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family, on Sunday, September 5, 2021. She was born on August 23, 1972, in Clovis, New Mexico, to Roman and Julianita (Lucero) Garcia.
A Celebration of Katrina’s Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at MORE Church, 5511 W. Amarillo Blvd., Amarillo, Texas.
She married the love of her life, Vicente Garcia on April 14, 1990. Together they created a world of loving, giving, and celebrating life together, always willing to include their precious family and friends.
One of her dear friends lovingly described her this way:
“She was tiny, tipping the ruler hardly past four feet, but her JOY skyrocketed past the million-inch mark. Katrina brought an ease and laughter to every circle she stepped into. Her heart was for the underdog; she cheered us all on, encouraging and waiting on the sidelines just like an over-zealous soccer mom. Her extreme nurturing created the beautiful children that she and Vincent have, and watching them parent over all these years made me realize that you can do it with crazy love AND with caring discipline.
If you knew her, you know Katrina’s title of “Hostess-with-the-Mostest” was well-deserved. Katrina supported everyone’s dreams, and she did so without judgement.” (A.H.)
She was preceded in death by father in law, Art Grant.
Those left to cherish Katrina’s memory are her beloved husband, Vincent; her parents, Roman and Julianita Garcia; mother-in-law, Patricia Grant; her loving children, Sandra and husband Josh Ramirez, Job Garcia and wife, Tavi, and Jazia Garcia and wife, Tommie; six grandchildren Aubriauna, Reager, Aria, Noah, Isaiah, and Vaughn (due Nov 2021). She is also survived by three sisters and two brothers, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, and countless friends who loved and cherished her.
