Her husband, Antonio Basco, had no other family and invited anyone to show up.
An El Paso man with no other living family is inviting the public to the funeral of his wife of 22 years, who was killed in the massacre that left 22 people dead at a Walmart earlier this month.
Hundreds of people across the nation are expected to gather for the funeral of one El Paso shooting victim in an outpouring of support for the victim's husband. Basco invited the public to attend the memorial in her honor and has laid fresh flowers everyday since the shooting at a make-shift memorial outside the outlet.
Friday didn't mark the only service that will honour Reckard. Funeral home staff urged attendees to be patient as people began rotating in and out of the service amid scorching heat.
After hearing Mr Basco's story, the funeral home director told the BBC they had made a decision to cover the full cost of the funeral. People crowded around to hug and touch him.
"Just sent flowers from Los Angeles, CA. The crowd is mostly Latino, lot of families, abuelas herding their grandkids, bikers, old school Chicano dudes in zoot suits. basically its El Paso", he continued.

Visitors from other cities at the makeshift memorial outside the Walmart on Friday said they had heard about the widower and seen stories about him mourning alone. He leaves fresh flowers each day at the site of a white cross bearing his wife's name and removes any that are dying. He prays for her and even talks to her.
"I know she's looking down and she's smiling", Mr Basco said, according to a Facebook post shared by El Paso native Beto O'Rourke. Antonio Basco has made headlines around the world after inviting the public to her funeral saying he was anxious not many would come to her service. What started as a drink and a friendly conversation turned into a dinner and later into their first time sharing breakfast. "I never felt anything like that in my life".
The couple soon became inseparable, traveling around the country until they eventually settled in El Paso.
