Tina G. Losoya

On Jan. 27, 2020 our beloved Tina G. Losoya entered eternal life with family by her side at the age of 72 in Alpine, Texas. She was the eldest child born to Ernestina and Eldefonso Garcia in Marfa, Texas. She married the love of her life, Joe Losoya, on Jan. 11, 1966, and recently celebrated 54 years of marriage.

Tina was devoted to her Catholic faith, and was a member of the Guadalupana Society at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Alpine. For a short period of time, she lived in Presidio, Texas, worked as a clerk for Big Bend Telephone Company, and served on the Presidio ISD school board. She was an assistant manager at a general store until she had to care for her son who was in an accident. After a time, she returned to the workforce at First National Bank in Alpine, a nursing home, Dollar Store, and Big Bend Community Action.

She was a loyal friend with a kind heart to many, and never ignored a stranger. She lived life to the fullest by always being cheerful and compassionate. She loved to travel, and played the slot machines at various casinos, especially in Las Vegas. She was the biggest supporter and proud of her children and husband.

She will be greatly missed by her soul mate, Joe, and her children who loved her so dearly, Joe Kenneth, Robert and Cindy Losoya, Dina Jo and Glen Marquez, and Kevin and Ruby Losoya. She was a grandmother of 10 children, and was soon to be a great grandmother.

Also to cherish her memory are her mother Ernestina and siblings Elodia Garcia, Poncho and Rosa Garcia, Eddie and Mary Garcia, Elia and Oscar Gonzales, and Eva and Michael Arriola.

She has rejoiced with her father Eldefonso and infant brother Lalo Garcia.

She had numerous nieces and nephews.

The  Holy Rosary was recited by the Guadalupanas on Jan. 30, 2020 at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church. Mass of Christian Burial was Jan. 31, 2020 at 10 a.m. Burial followed at Holy Angels Cemetery in Alpine.
