Felipa “Angelica” Malandra Garcia



Peacefully, while surrounded by her loving family on Monday, March 13th, 2023, our beloved Angelica passed away at the age of 52 years after her 20 year long battle with cancer.


Angelica was born on August 22nd,1970 in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco Mexico. At the age of 16 years old fate brought Giuliano and Angelica together. Angelica was working at the Hotel Flamingo when Giuliano first laid eyes on her. True love at first sight. After a short time of writing long distance letters to each other, they both knew that this love was forever, bringing her home to Canada to start their journey together.


Angelica was the greatest Wife, Mother, and Nana that anyone could ask for, despite any obstacles that she had faced in her life. A kind spirited soul who filled her world with beautiful harmony. She was a master gardener, who so dearly loved creating beautiful gardens with all her flowers and plants. A passionate cook who expressed her culture and love on every plate. Above all, Angelica always kept her family, and friends close to her heart.
