Rebecca Irene Garza passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on November 24, 2017. Born July 12, 1941 she grew up in Mission, TX and graduated from Mission High School and took classes at the School of Business in McAllen. . She met the love of her life and got married to John J. Garza. She was a devoted wife for 20 years until the untimely passing of her one and only true sole mate. She was a woman of great strength and a true spirit of faith. Irene soon began a family and had her first child, Joel J. Garza aka JJ. She soon moved to Houston Texas where she then had a beautiful daughter Rebecca (Becky). Many years later, her daughter Becky and husband Rusty started a family and gave her what every mom wants; a grandson. John Hunter was her one and only Grandson and he was her pride and joy.

She has been reunited with her parents Ismael and Rebecca Pena. Irene left her memories to be carried on by her children along with her sisters Gracie (Alfonso), Norma, Judy (Pete), Soni, Richard (Karen) and a host of nieces, nephews, friends and her beloved Second Baptist Church family.

Always a ray of sunshine, Irene's smile made a profound impact on everyone she loved, especially children and the radiance of who she was will be forever missed. She taught us how to love, nurture and show the love of Christ in her words and actions. She was the happiest woman and she was always doing what she loved like quilting, sewing, gardening, knitting, and spending time around her pond. She spent the last day doing what she loved until the Lord called her home.
