Eric A. Garcia

Eric A. Garcia, age 33, of Calumet City, IL, passed away peacefully on January 17, 2021, surrounded by his family.

Violet is survived by her devoted and loving daughter Donna Marie, niece Marilyn Hulick, nephew Mark Loomis, great nephews Sam Hulick, Michael Hulick and Jeffrey Hulick, and treasured kumovi, loving friends, and cherished neighbors.

Violet earned her Cosmetology certificate from Don Roberts Hair of School Design and pursued her career by building a beauty salon in her home, where she continued to cultivate her professional clients while ensuring she provided a consistent, stable and loving home life. She continued her career retiring from Inland Steel Corporation, followed by serving as Hall Manager of St Sava. Equally important to her professional endeavors, Violet embraced philanthropic efforts through her lifelong participation in and dedication to church activities, St. George Serbian Orthodox Church, East Chicago, IN and St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, Merrillville, IN including Board Member of Serbian Circle of Sisters, 4 Kolo including the inaugural trip to her Yugoslavian ancestral homeland, Folklore Groups, SSS Karageorge Choir, Lifeline Humanitarian Organization, Chairman of many St. Sava Bake Sales, SNF Lodge and Historical Society, for the benefit of all.

A renowned quote which eloquently describes Violet is “hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny”. She was not a modicum ordinary, quite contraire. She was special, rare, unrivaled, beyond compare, a precious gem, more precious than rubies.

Singularly, she built a home which foundation was made of faith; the walls were covered with virtue and wisdom and the inside adorned with furnishings of her selfless deeds of love for church, family, friends, neighbors and her precious daughter Donna.

She arose while it was still night to provide food; she set about her work vigorously, her arms strong for her tasks. She opened her arms to the poor and extended her hands to the needy. She was clothed with strength and dignity; she spoke with sage wisdom, and faithful instruction was endlessly on her tongue. She watched over the affairs of her household and never ate the bread of idleness. Her daughter called her blessed. Many women do noble things, Violet surpassed them all.

The Orthodox Faith is rich in 3. The Holy Trinity, Resurrection on the Third Day; Daniel and the 3 young boys in the furnace, and faith, hope and love, the greatest being love. Like her faith’s connection to 3, Violet’s significant 3: kumovi/friends, family and caretakers provided profound support, exceptional care and above all else, incomparable love for her, especially during her recent months. Abundant gratitude and lavish appreciation to each of her 3. Several years ago, divine providence bestowed upon Violet a special angel who provided medical attention, care and companionship up until her last, peaceful breath. A humble, inexplicable expression of indebtedness.

Violet was an exemplary example of someone to be emulated. Honor her for all that her hands have done and let her works bring her praise. Her daughter humbly prays, “As is the mother, so is her daughter”. Ezekiel 16:44. Her daughter was blessed, fortunate, and privileged to be the only one to call Violet “Mom”.

May her Memory be Eternal.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, December 24, 2020 at 10am at St Sava Serbian Orthodox Church, 9191 Mississippi St, Merrillville with V. Rev. Marko Matic officiating.

Rosa Mangual

Rosa Mangual
January 13, 2021

Rosa (Leon) Mangual August 30, 1930 to January 13, 2021.

Rosa (Leon) Mangual, age 90, born August 30, 1930 to Pedro and Manuela Leon was a long-time resident of Gary, IN. In 2009,
she moved to Merrillville, IN where she resided with her daughter, Gloria, and special son-in-law, Peter Obregon. Her final year
was spent in their new home in Crown Point, IN.

Rosa is preceded in death by her parents, Pedro and Manuela Leon; husband, Amado Calo Mangual; daughter, Anita Gamez;
sons, Anthony Vargas and Amado Calo Mangual, Jr.; sister, Jennie Sandusky; brothers, Juan Flores and Peter Leon;
granddaughters, Atina Rodriguez, Yvette N. Williams, Lindsey Williams, and great grandchildren, Jazmin Osbourne, Jamin
Osbourne, Yazmin Goldman and Ariel Goldman. She is survived by 8 daughters, Deborah Surgener, Jennie Teague, Judith
Williams, Gloria (Peter) Obregon, Sorida DeLeon, Neraida Torres, Angelina Mingo, Laura (Danny) Alcocer; brothers, Simon Leon
and Eddie Leon.
Rosa accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior and literally praised Him with her last breath. She was a long-time member of
Holy Angels Cathedral in Gary, IN where she sang in the choir and participated in a special prayer group. Rosa frequently
attended Family Christian Center for services, productions and other events until she became ill. Thereafter, she streamed the
services alongside family.
Her family was her ministry. This adoring matriarch of five generations was a devoted wife, beloved mother of eleven children,
grandmother of twenty-three grandchildren, forty-two great grandchildren, and twelve great-great grandchildren. She raised
strong-willed children with wide-ranging personalities; yet, loved them unconditionally and nurtured each one according to their
needs. Initially reared in the Catholic Church, godly morals and values were instilled in her children. During her last days, she
reminded them to seek the Lord for themselves, to love and care for one another, to always forgive each other, and never ever
allow anything or anyone to separate them. Rosa wore many hats and filled many roles: loving daughter, devoted wife, gracious
mother, adoring grandmother, sister, aunt, friend, protector, and teacher. When her husband was disabled, she became his
primary caregiver until he passed. She was a wonderful example to follow and the rock the family needed.
In addition to raising eleven children, maintaining a marriage and a household, Rosa was employed full-time in retail
management until retirement. She was known for her loyalty, exceptional work ethic, grace, kindness, and friendly
demeanor. She lived a full, active, blessed life, which consisted of intentionally serving others, giving of herself relentlessly,
unselfishly and without complaints. She was truly a Proverbs 31 woman of God.
In her younger years Rosa loved to dance and was known to be quite trendy and fashionable. She relished cooking Sunday dinners
for the entire family, celebrating holidays, birthdays, family outings and more. She enjoyed the outdoors, going out for dinner
and a movie, word puzzles, and most recently playing bingo with her special circle of friends–Monin, Celia, Isabel, Margaret,
Ofelia, Sandra and Lisa.
NEVER GIVE UP appeared to be the mantra throughout Rosa’s life. She lived through the Great Depression, war times, and was
privileged to vote in many presidential elections from Harry S. Truman to Joseph R. Biden. She endured much heartbreak,
hardships, emotional pain, and trials; yet, remained strong and maintained her peace. She learned to recognize that God’s
blessings far outweighed every challenge.
In 2009, Rosa became part of the Obregon household and remained there until her transition. Gloria and Peter provided the
best care and spoiled her to no end, as did the rest of her children. Her daughter Debbie was at her side 24/7, whenever she
was hospitalized and required special attention. Rosa shared time between households, which allowed her the opportunity to
intimately know ALL of her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She had a special relationship with
each one. Because she treasured spending time with family near and far, Rosa never missed birthdays, showers, weddings,
graduations, sporting events or any other significant occasion. She was present for the birth of many of her grandchildren. She
was showered with love and joy all of her life, not only by her family but also many close friends.
Rosa fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith (2 Timothy 4:7). She was called home on Wednesday, January
13, 2021, which also happened to be her wedding anniversary, and transitioned peacefully at home with family by her side. This
woman of God achieved her heart’s ultimate desire, to meet Christ Jesus our Eternal Savior, and be reunited with her husband
and family who made their glorious journeys prior to her departure. Both family and friends honor and celebrate her
extraordinary life.
Rosa left an amazing legacy that will carry on for generations to come and her children will not fail her.

She is preceded in death by her parents: Althea and Silas Shirley; her dear daughter Pamela; and her brother, Bob Shirley.
