The company that is in charge of Garza's funeral services published her obituary. "Margaret enjoyed the simple things in life and knew their worth. Everything big and small was worth its weight in gold to her. She was beauty without presumption, intelligence with humility, and unyielding perseverance without rest.
Margaret was a self-proclaimed “Daddy’s Girl” who loved every moment with him. She gained her love of nature, riding horses, shooting guns, and all things cowboy from her #1 Cowboy, her Daddy. And from her mama, it was having pride in a nice clean home, her love of cooking, and her respect for others. Margaret had a lovely bond with her mother. Above all, she and her mother were best friends. Both her parents loved, cared, and nurtured Margaret. Their love made Margaret the beautiful human being she was inside and out," says the death notice.

El Cenizo (Texas) Mayor, Raul Reyes, said: "We became friends 15 years ago during a beauty contest and from that moment I saw that she was a fighter, full of optimism and without malice."
