Josephine Solis Galvan entered eternal rest on Monday, April 17, 2023, at the age of 76. She was born on May 10, 1946, in Floresville, Texas to Alicia De La Garza but was raised by Olivia Solis.

Josephine (Fina) Galvan was a one of kind Wife, Mother, and Grandmother she loved all her family and friends. She was a passionate person always praying for others. Waking up every morning to a cup of coffee, starting her day with Peanut being her best companion.

She enjoyed listening to church music, going to yard sales, cooking, making tortillas sometimes tamales, and watching her favorite novelas. Her favorite outside plants were roses and Chile pepper plants. On Football Sundays you could hear her shouting, watching the Dallas Cowboys play.

In her home she always kept pictures everywhere of the family keeping the memories alive! She called every day to check in on us and we won't forget the sound of her voice telling us how much she loved us!
