Selsa was born in Ojinaga, Mexico on July 28, 1945 to Julian and Carmen (Velasquez) Garcia and passed away on December 11, 2020 in Lubbock, Texas. She was a very active member of St. Thomas Catholic Church and was very faithful to say her rosary every morning. She was a giver of her time and an encourager and helper to others and would give communion to the inmates at the jail and always the ill. She also did a Bible study at the prison for the inmates. In her early years, she was a candy striper and later worked for the City of Lovington as a meter reader and Good Samaritan Center as a CNA. She had a work ethic that was huge and she loved her family very much. She was a great cook, sharing her tamales and beans and her wonderful, mouth-watering Biscochitos with others and she especially loved to cook for the grandkids on their birthday. She was a much loved lady and will be greatly missed.
