Obituary

Carmen Cisneros Floeck, 79, passed away March 3, 2015, surrounded by family and friends.

Carmen was a lifelong Galveston resident who loved the beach, reading, sewing, cooking, crossword puzzles and, most of all, her extended family, friends and church family. She was known and loved for her compassion, upbeat disposition and sense of humor.

She graduated from Ball High School, where she was active in extracurricular activities, and remained in contact with many of her childhood and school friends. She attended Sam Houston State Teachers College. She was a longtime, active member of Broadway Church of Christ.

A skilled seamstress, she made clothes for herself and her daughters, as well as their Barbies. Many of her friends enjoyed Dickens on the Strand in costumes she created. She re-covered furniture, wallpapered like a pro, and stitched quilts for her grandchildren. She could whip up a tasty meal on a moment’s notice; her family especially looked forward to her holiday meals and fruitcakes.

After years of working part-time and short-term jobs, she joined UTMB as an administrative secretary in the radiology department, retiring in 2002.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Raymond S. Cisneros and Edna Mansfield; sister Rachel Irene Fajardo; former husband, Calvin E. Floeck; and son, Calvin M. Floeck.

Survivors include her dear friend J. Dean Knox; daughters Nancy Floeck Wilson and husband Ronald, and Anne Rodwell; sister Norma Henriksen and husband Eugene; brothers Robert Mansfield and wife Robin, and John Mansfield; six grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Visitation will be Monday at 1 p.m. at Broadway Church of Christ, 1628 Broadway in Galveston, followed by a memorial service at 2 p.m.

Honorary pallbearers are Michael Lake, Eugene Henriksen, Robert Mansfield, Jim Gowdy, Armando Cardenas and Joe Knox.

My heart goes out to your family. I am so sorry for your loss. What pain hurts worse than the pain of losing someone that you love? Ms. Carmen was loved and she will be dearly missed. Again, I am so sorry. Though the pain you're feeling must seem unbearable, please remember that you are not alone. Psalms 46:1 says, "God is our refuge and strength, a help that is readily found in times of distress." Pray to Him for strength. Weep to Him when there are no words. One of the poets of the Bible said at Psalms 56:8, "You keep track of my wandering. Do collect my tears in your skin bottle." You see, God understands your pain and He cares for you very much (1 Peter 5:7). And He will really help you get through this difficult time (Isaiah 41:10).
