Josefina Garcia Menendez, 96, left us on June 16, 2020 with her family by her side in Naples, Florida.  Josefina was born on November 15, 1923 in Havana, Cuba to Luis and Nieves Menendez.  She lived most of her life in Cuba where she met the love of her life, Antonio Garcia, and married him.  They had two boys and later found themselves living in Wichita, Kansas where their family grew.  Eventually life brought her to Miami, Florida where she lived with her sister, Esperanza Mesa. 

Her interests included family, loving her grandchildren, cooking Cuban food, making photo albums, crocheting and making friends with everyone in the neighborhood.  She devoted much of her time and energy to being a loving mother, grandmother and friend to all.  She was a devoted Catholic woman and always put God first.
