November 20, 1960 – May 1, 2019
With great sadness the family of Ana Garcia Martins wishes to announce her passing at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital on Wednesday, May 1, 2019, Blessed with 58 years of life.
Ana was born November 20, 1960 in Cranbrook, BC to parents Miguel and Georgina Silva. Along with Helder, Ana raised their two children as well as a few neighborhood children along the way, all while working full or part- time jobs most of her life. Ana also had a hand in caring for her parents and siblings in their time of need. Ana spent over 10 years working at Walmart serving the public. Amidst that her loving “work family”Â was made. In her off time Ana enjoyed spending quality time with her friends and family, cooking, teaching the next generation new things, and
