On Saturday, July 30, the children of Stella Garza Sanchez – Ruby, Jerry, Edward and Melissa – hosted 60 family members and friends to lunch at Leota’s at the Berclair Mansion in honor of Stella’s 80th birthday.

Children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, longtime friends, sister-in-law Idalia Garza, and siblings Mary Rojas, Frank, Johnny and Luz Garza were all able to attend.

Guests enjoyed visiting, and photos were taken prior to being seated for lunch. The blessing was given by Mike Muñoz, family friend and next-door neighbor, who also spoke about Stella’s having touched many lives in the teaching field, her service to the Catholic Church and friendship to many.

The four-course meal included pear celery soup, mixed greens salad and rosemary chicken. A raspberry-filled birthday cake and cookies were served after all joined in to sing “Happy Birthday.” Afterwards, group photos of Stella with her siblings were taken.
