Alondra Ines Garcia

Our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece and friend, Alondra Ines Garcia, went to be with our Heavenly Father unexpectedly on Monday, November 2, in Copperas Cove.

Alondra came into the world on February 27, 1996, to her parents, Carmela Guardiola Garcia and Arnulfo Garcia in College Station, Texas.

Alondra was raised in Temple and graduated from Temple High School in 2014, where she was involved in Temple concert and marching band, and TISD After-School Program. She attended Temple College for two years. Alondra was also a member of Christ The King Catholic Church in Belton and the youth program. She was the 2011 Festival Queen for Christ The King.

Alondra worked at Spare-Time, Ralph Wilson Youth Club, Megg’s Café, Ariza Apartments as a leasing agent, Backyard Barbecue and Clear Creek Meadows as their assistant manager in Copperas Cove, where she had just recently moved.

Alondra had an unforgettable spirit and a smile to match. Anytime she was present, she would light up the room. She was a beautiful soul inside and out.

Alondra loved to take care of all her loved ones, including her nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. Anytime anybody went out of town, or was away for the weekend, she’d be the first to step up to take care of their pets. You would always find Alondra with her Mom and Sister. If she wasn’t out shopping or eating, Alondra would be babysitting her teacher’s children or upgrading her cooking skills or doing skits with her mom and sister.

Alondra is survived by her beloved parents, Carmela and Arnulfo Garcia; her beloved sister Bianca from Temple; her brothers, Eric Garcia and wife Evangelee of Midland, Texas and Ronnie Garcia and wife Melissa of Mesa, Arizona; and her grandmother, Pura R. Guardiola of Temple. She is also survived by her beloved pet Faye, who was with her until the end. Alondra considered Faye as her daughter and best friend. Everywhere Alondra went, Faye was by her side.

She is also survived by her aunts and uncles: Frank and Theresa Guardiola, Epifanio and Puri Ortiz, Roy and Elsa Castillo, Francisco and Alma Davila, Johnny and Delia Guardiola, Ricky and Teresa Guardiola, George and Sue Guardiola, Francisco and Maria Elena Guardiola, Bernardo and Rosa Baeza, Oscar and Amalia Torres, and Joe, Phillip, Raul and Cesar Guardiola
