Juliana (Nelly) García Flores, 82, of Winter Park, Florida, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, August 12, 2012, after a heroic battle with cancer. She was a woman who valued knowledge and education, who was a loyal friend to many, and who had a deep and abiding faith in God.
Juliana was born on February 16, 1930, in Cardenas, Matanzas, Cuba, to Ana Lucia Rodriguez and Roberto Garcia. She attended Montreat College, North Carolina, for two years where she began her college studies and learned English. She returned to Cuba and attended the Evangelical Seminary in Matanzas, Cuba, graduating with a degree in Christian Education in 1954. After graduation, she served a church in Nueva Paz, Cuba, and also served as a missionary in both Cuba and the United States, speaking to church groups in both English and Spanish. She moved to New York City in 1956, to Miami, Florida, in 1961, and then Winter Park in 1998. In 1983 she earned her bachelor's degree from Biscayne College, Miami. In 1989, Juliana retired from her post as a deputy court clerk with The Dade County Clerk of Courts, Juvenile Court Division.
She had a God-given talent for making friends and maintaining them. She remembered names, faces, and most-importantly each person's story. Her genuine interest in others made her welcomed and loved among many with whom she came in contact. She gratefully remembered missionaries, teachers, classmates, and colleagues and remained in close contact with many. She will be remembered for her strong faith in God and sharing her love of God and life with family, friends, and strangers. Her faith formation came by way of the Presbyterian and United Methodist churches. She was also a long-time member at Central Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), Orlando.
Juliana is survived by her loving children Mirtha (Frank) Martinez, Miriam (Stephen) Gentle, Alex (Mercedes) Bosque; grandchildren Evan, Ryan, Wesley, Ana-Elisa, Phillip, Christian, Nicholas; sister-in-law Norah Garcia; nieces Donna and Lisa. She was predeceased by her beloved brother, Robert Garcia, of San Antonio, Texas.
Internment will be at Woodlawn Cemetery South, Miami, on Friday, August 24, at 10 a.m.
