November 6, 1970 ~ February 12, 2018
Frances Cinderella Garcia, better known as Cinderella was born on November 6, 1970 in Manila, Philippines and joined her maker on February 12, 2018, at the age of 47 in Lawndale, CA. Her father, Engr. Benjamin A. Garcia and her mother, Remedios Villavicencio Garcia preceded her in death. She is survived by her 12 sisters and 3 brothers.
Frances was born in the Philippines. She immigrated to the United States with her mother in 1973 and joined her Dad and siblings. Frances attended North Torrance High School for Special Needs Children. She worked at the Westside Regional Center workshop until 2011.
Frances was a very loving, sweet, and sociable individual. Everyone she meets is “my friend”. She was a delight to see and interact with. She loved music, singing and dancing. She loved all the family parties with her numerous nieces and nephews and took every opportunity to dance and sing. She would always try to get you to join her, often seen waving and saying “Come on guys”. Her favorite singer was Michael Jackson; however, her favorite song was “Be My Lady”. She loved to go to Disneyland and Mickey Mouse.
She travelled with her Dad and Mom. In August 1978, she went on a cross country tour with her Dad and Mom. They traveled to Denver, Colorado; Victoria, Kansas; St. Louis, Missouri; Chicago and Niles, Illinois; Ontario, Canada; and New York. She has visited the Sequoia National Park and Big Bear for a taste of snow. Frances had experienced her first cruise in 2001 on board the Carnival Cruise Ship to Catalina Island and Ensenada. She, with her Mom, frequented New York to visit her Mom’s sister. She has traveled to London, Paris, Venice, Portugal, Rome, and Hong Kong with her Mom and Dad. She has also traveled to Hawaii; Orlando, Florida; Cancun, Mexico; and the Bahamas. When her Mom passed away in 2010 her sister, Evelyn, and her family took care of Frances.
Frances will be sorely missed. This earthbound angel has now joined her loving parents to watch over their amazing flock. She was truly an inspiration and had a message for all her “my friend”:
Love, Dance, and Sing.
