Loving daughter, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, aunt and niece. Irene E. Anaya, age 71, went home to be with the Lord peacefully on November 16, 2023, with her family by her side.
She was born to the union of the late Ignacio and Flora Garcia in La Junta, Colorado. Both parents preceded her in death, and two brothers: Raymond Garcia and Gary Garcia.
Irene retired from King Soopers. She enjoyed cooking with her children, planting colorful flowers, playing bingo, family games, and movie nights. Her most precious times were spent with her grandson, Jacob. Family was the most important to Irene, second to her love for God.
She leaves to cherish her memory, her children: Jacquelyn (Roland) Raye, Jerry Duran; grandson, Jacob Duran; brother, Rick (Lorraine) Garcia; sister-in-law, Joni Garcia; nephew, Julio Garcia; niece, Mercedes Garcia; great-nieces and nephews: O‘Mari, Aizlin, Mila, Ziah and Montez; aunts: Inez, Barbara, Mary, Gloria, Bea (Ed); numerous cousins and many friends.
A celebration of Irene‘s life will occur in the summer of 2024. She will always be in our hearts and memories forever on earth and now in Heaven.
Rest in Paradise Our Sweet Irene!
