Frances Belmontes Garcia
With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Frances Belmontes Garcia. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and key family member who will be deeply missed and not forgotten.
On Monday, August 9, 2021, she passed in Sacramento, CA at Sutter Health Hospital. Frances Belmontes Garcia, age 76, was born to the late Merced Belmontes and Dionisia Belmontes, on January 30, 1945, in Buena Park, CA. She was second to the youngest of 8 children and 4 of her siblings preceded her in death.
She lived in Southern California all of her life until she retired from the Monrovia Unified School District and moved to Atwater to be close to her sons and her grandchildren. She lived there with her caring husband for 20 years before her passing.
Frances loved sports. She watched football and baseball games on TV, but she got the most enjoyment when she watched her children and grandchildren play.
She took pride in her cooking and baking, along with cross stitching, making greeting cards, and reading and studying the Bible. Frances attended church regularly and was an active member at Liberty Fellowship Church. She was on the worship team because her passion was singing her praises to the Lord.
Frances married Robert Garcia on June 21, 1963, who survives her, along with her three sons and their wives, Robert Garcia, Jr. ( Eva), Johnny Garcia (Marlene) , and Art Garcia (Rita) , along with her brother, Santos Belmontes, her two sisters, Eva Lopez, Aurora Ballesteros, her eleven grandchildren, and 17 great grandchildren.
