Order Flowers now for guaranteed delivery before Idolina's visitation.
Idolina Leyva was born January 25, 1936 in El Cenizo, TX to Cayetano and Sara
(Balderas) Garcia. She was the 8 th of 9 children and a daddy’s girl. She married Gavino
Leyva February 28 th , 1965 in a small church wedding in Worland, Wyoming. In this
union they had four children, Elva Gonzales, Priscilla (Scott) Stringari, Sara (Bobby)
Chapa, and Mark (Lisa) Leyva. Her legacy continued with 15 grand and great
grandchildren and one on the way. She was proceeded in death by her parents;
brothers Cesario, Marcos, Ruben, Francisco, and Robert Garcia; sisters Carolina
Lopez, Lydia Garcia, and Aurora Martinez; and grandson Joey Gonzales. Throughout
her life she loved planting flowers, traveling, painting, embroidery, laughing,
attending church every Sunday, watching Molly B Polka with her husband, but most
of all spending time with her family. She had the opportunity to visit many places
including family vacations to Disney World and the beaches of Padre Island; she even
travelled to Mexico to help build a church on a missionary trip. She worked with
children in daycares, visited the members of the local nursing home, and even
helped washing dishes in her family’s restaurant. Although Idolina never learned to
drive, she was a social butterfly and was always ready to hit the road seeking
adventure. Up until the end she could be heard saying, “Are you ready? You got your
car? Let’s Go.” And she has gone; she’s now in Heaven waiting on all her family to
join her where the laughter and fun will continue. We love you Viejita!
Funeral services will be held Tuesday July 13 th , 10:00am at Glad Tidings Assembly of
