Obituary

Petra Garcia, 68 of Salinas joined our Heavenly Father on Wednesday May 10, 2017.

She was born in Zacatecas, Mexico and raised in Mecatan, Nayarit.
Petra migrated to California to raise her family in Salinas Valley and gave 42 years
of hard work harvesting the fields on the Central Coast and Imperial Valley. She is the epitome of strength, courage, and resilience. Petra's love for her children was endless, selfless, and unconditional. Her Joy in life was increased when she became a grandmother to her grandchildren and even more with her great grandchildren. She took pride in talking about her children and grandchildren's successes, education, and seeing them accomplish all that she could have only dreamed of. We will forever miss her carefree attitude, and genuine love for all of her family.

She was proceeded in death, by her late husband, Roberto Garcia, and her father Dolores Salas.

Petra was survived by her mother: Maria Castaneda-Salas, her Children: Roberto (Zulema) Garcia, Maria (Jesse) Ramirez, Griselda (David) Palafox. Grandchildren: Karissa, Erin, Koby, Jade, Palafox, Anthony (Jessica), Abraham (Stephanie), Michael, Ashley, Jovan, Milagros Pajimola, Jesse (Jessica), Valerie, Eden, Vanessa Ramirez.

Brothers: Pedro Salas, Jesus Salas, Francisco (Telma) Salas, Jose (Felix) Salas, Mario (Chela) Salas. Sisters: Clementina (Luis Velgara) Salas de Velgara, Alicia (Conrado) Vasquez, Ernestina (Abel Gomez) Salas. And many nephews and nieces and friends.
