McAllen - Selina M. Garza, passed away on September 24, 2018 after a lengthy stay at Amara Hospice. The daughter of Linda Garza and the late Leonel Garza Jr. She was a vibrant person who loved family. She is survived by her mother Linda Garza, siblings: Linda Gould (Richard), Leonel Garza III (Monica) and Luis Carlos Garza (Martha), and (7) nieces and nephews. Educated at Bowie Elementary School and Memorial High School, Selina continue to thrive through aid of special educators and tutors whom helped her became an independent person whom had Downs Syndrome. This challenge did not stop her from being one of the longest standing employees at McAllen Red Lobster Restaurant until her retirement after 23 loyal years. This opportunity was a local program which she was given a chance to work full time. She was loved by her fellow employees and several managers to whom our family is grateful for their efforts to help her succeed. Being the only surviving individual in a program aimed at providing jobs to challenged individuals, Selina broke the barrier to which children with special needs can contribute to society. A job she took very seriously and with passion to which never ended until her retirement. With the help of all of those surrounding her daily and the continued and never ending support of family and friends, Selina led a life which can only be labeled as astonishing. Growing up she was a Special Olympic Athlete, competing in track relay events and a also a model for the McAllen Child Study Club fundraising events. After all the years of working at Red Lobster, during her retirement, was so excited to receive all the accolade for all her years of service with former employees and managers attending the event. For all that Red Lobster has done for Selina over the years we thank you. Visitation will be at Kreidler Funeral Home in McAllen, TX today, September 25, 2018 from 6 pm to 8 pm with a rosary at 7 pm. The funeral mass will be on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 at Our Lady Of Sorrows Church at 10 am. Interment will follow at Roselawn Cemetery. The family would like to thank the entire staff and doctors at DHR Hospital ICU and Amara Hospice.
