Victoria V. Garza, 89, of Yorktown, passed away at home on Saturday, May 13, 2023. Victoria was born March 6, 1934 in Goliad to the late Reymundo and Geronima Martinez Valdez. She was a member of San Luis Catholic Church and was a Guadalupana. Cooking was one of her many gifts that all of her children enjoyed with each one of them having their favorite dish. She volunteered at Yorktown Alliance Ministry and was always ready to help at San Luis Church Jamaica making hamburgers and tamales. Our sweet mother will be remembered for having had a heart of a servant always willing to help others. 1 Peter 4:10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
