Carmen Garcia

Carmen L. Garcia, 77, returned to the loving arms of the Lord on Saturday, May 14, 2022, at St. Vincent's Medical Center, Bridgeport, CT.  She was born in Juncos, Puerto Rico to the late Guillermo Resto and the late Primitiva Morales. She is the beloved wife, of over 40 years, of Jorge Garcia. 

Carmen was a dedicated employee at Edwin Gaynor Corporation for 39 years.  She was a very nurturing person who always kept her doors open to all with a warm plate of something delicious to eat.  She was an avid fan of the New York Yankees, especially Babe Ruth.  She enjoyed spending time at the park, fishing, playing bingo and completing word search puzzles.  She was a humble servant of the Lord who praised him with her gift of song in the church choir.    

Aside from her husband Jorge, Carmen leaves behind to cherish her memory her loving children Eunice Garcia, Reynardo Ortiz, Edgardo Ortiz (Blanca), Elizabeth Garcia (Viviana Medina), Maria A. Carillo and Luz A. Garcia, as well as her adoring siblings Gladys Rivera, Angel Resto, Olga Resto and Nino, 11 precious grandchildren and a great-grandson, and a host of friends and family that will miss her dearly.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2022, from 5:00 - 8:00 PM at Funeraria Luz de Paz, 426 East Washington Avenue, Bridgeport, CT.
