Mary Alecia Sibio
Beloved mother, daughter and friend, Mary Alecia Sibio, passed away August 12, 2015 with her son at her side after a courageous battle with bile duct cancer. She was born August 1, 1952 in Henderson, Nevada. Alecia grew up in the Las Vegas valley and graduated from Valley High School.
During high school, Alecia was a member of the popular singing and touring group The Las Vegas Ambassadors, and remained close friends with many members of that group until the end of her life, even helping to organize reunions. Alecia (“Al” to the Ambassadors), was always the life of the party, bringing her vibrance and energy to every Ambassadors event. She also spent a portion of her high school years in Sitka, Alaska, where she still has close friends.
Alecia had a 40-year career in the gaming industry, working as a casino dealer and as management for various resorts in Las Vegas and Mesquite Nevada, Atlantic City, Phoenix, Delaware, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Alecia was crowned Ms. Senior Mesquite in 2013, and was first runner-up at the following Ms. Senior Nevada pageant. She was well-known in Mesquite for her sense of humor and style, and was sought after to promote issues of local interest.
Alecia is survived by her three children Aaron, Zachary and Sarah, by her mother and stepfather Diana and Dennis Garmann, by her brother Blake, and by her lifelong friend Lanie.
Funeral services for Alecia will take place at 1:00pm on Thursday, 20 August 2015 at Bunkers Eden Vale Mortuary, 925 Las Vegas Blvd North in Las Vegas, NV. Family and friends can gather for a viewing from 11:00am to 1:00pm. A graveside service and interment will follow at Bunkers Memory Gardens cemetery.
