Garza 70Th Anniversary


After World War II had ended, a young Navy Yeoman Third Class returned home to Catarina, Texas to marry his sweetheart. They exchanged vows in Asherton, Texas on May 4th, 1947. Seventy years later, we still honor them for their commitment to each other and to family and country.On Saturday, May 27th, Victor V. Garza, 96, and Amalia R. Garza, 88, were surrounded by their children for an Anniversary celebration at Las Palmas Restaurant in Victoria. Their 7 children were in attendance, Victor Jr. and Beatrice Garza from Houston, Delia Garza from Victoria, Mario and Silvia Garza from Alice, Texas, Irma and Danny Pina from Conroe, Anita and Mike Manley from Houston, Rudy and Mimi Garza from Lafayette, Louisiana, and Diane and Brian Flemming from Pflugerville, Texas. Victor and Amalia also have beautiful 13 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren.The couple moved to Victoria with four of their children in the summer of 1957. Victor worked with the Fordyce Company and later would retire with Krueger Construction Company. Amalia (Mali) was a busy homemaker to a family of seven children, whom they would encourage and later see graduate from colleges as well as their grandchildren.They taught us to trust in God, to respect others, to have a great work ethic and to find our voices in life. We, their family, thank our Mom and Dad.
