Mrs. Sandoval was born on July 22, 1948 in Berclair to Albert and Eva Garces.  She started working for GTE in accounts payable in 1973 and retired from Verizon in 2003.  Mary married Robert Sandoval on her birthday, July 22, 1985 in San Angelo.  Everyone knew not to bother her when she was watching her two favorite shows, The Young and the Restless and Judge Judy.  She was involved with ACTS as a director and attended many of their retreats, taught CCD at Holy Angels Catholic Church, and enjoyed playing Bunko with friends.  Mary loved spending time with her family and attending her grandchildren’s events.  She battled cancer for 12 years, and last year she marked riding in a hot air balloon off her bucket list.

Mary is survived by her husband, Robert of the home; her five children, Melissa Delarosa and wife Elsa of San Angelo, Melinda Vasquez and husband Shorty of North Richland Hills, Mary Stanfill of San Antonio, Art Gonzales, Jr. and wife Julie of San Angelo and Bobby Sandoval, Jr. of San Angelo; two brothers, Albert Garces, Jr. and wife Maggie of Beeville and Jesse Garces, Sr. of San Angelo; a sister, Mary Jane Fuentes of San Angelo; 14 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
