MARIA GARCIA
Maria Cardillo Garcia, widow of Ernest John Garcia, her husband of 69 years, died at her home in Greenwood on August 1, 2008 of natural causes. She was 96 years old.
Born in Brooklyn, New York on April 19, 1912, she was the daughter of Leo S. and Marianna La Torre Cardillo, and the sister of six pre-deceased siblings. She was the last remaining member of her immediate family. She devoted her life to her home and her family. Her love of grandchildren and gardening were hallmarks of her life. She continued to cook and serve traditional family Sicilian meals on a weekly basis through her early nineties. It was not uncommon for twenty five or thirty people to grace her holiday table. She left her family home in her seventies to relocate from Long Island to Greenwood.
She is survived by four children, Lea Garcia McCallum of Greenwood, Josephine Garcia Royle of Vermont, Ernest Mathew Garcia of Connecticut, and William John Garcia, MD of Virginia. She is also survived by twelve Grandchildren, nine Great-Grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
