Esther Garcia passed away on January 5, 2020, a month and a half after co-hosting the Questa Women’s Tea in November, 2019. A powerful love for the people, history and traditions of Questa and the surrounding communities was a core conviction in her life. Esther celebrated and studied her roots, family and community history. She was a fierce advocate for land and water, acequia systems, culture and traditions. Her work and words have left a lasting mark on our hearts. Esther will be missed by many and we are grateful to have known and worked with her.
