ORCIBIANA VASQUEZ ROMERO Orcibiana Vasquez Romero -- , known to her friends as "Annie" was born in Penasco, New Mexico on April 3, 1926. Annie passed away peacefully on Friday, May 9, 2014, at the home of her daughter Annabelle Romero in Santa Fe. Her parents were Luisita and Emilio Vasquez, and she had 14 siblings. She lived most of her life in Vadito, New Mexico with her husband, Raymundo Romero who died July 2, 2007. Annie's mother died when she was in elementary school and she was required to end her formal education and help with the care of her younger siblings. Her young life caring first for siblings and later as a wife and mother were shaped by the sacrifices endured during World War II and the Great Depression. Those challenges caused her to acquire a mental toughness, resilience, and conservation ethic to survive the hardships of the time. She became a strong, gentle woman, self-educated, speaking, reading and writing in both Spanish and English. While her husband Raymundo worked in Los Alamos for 23 years and commuted home only on weekends, Annie managed the household, her five children and the family farm. By her own perseverance, and enterprising self-reliance she taught herself to become an excellent cook, and seamstress. Annie was a loving mother, wife, aunt, and friend to many; all while maintaining an immaculate home and her cherished flower gardens. Annie is survived by three sons, their spouses and one daughter: Louis Romero and wife Patricia, Benito Romero and wife Linda, Isaac Romero and wife Marie, and daughter Annabelle Romero. Annie is preceded in death by her daughter Eleanor Montoya. Annie is survived by one sister, Priscilla Martinez, former son-in law, Michael Montoya, six granddaughters; Bonnie, Raquel, Michelle, Danielle, Drucille and Rebecca, two grandsons; Cameron and Brock, three great-granddaughters; Aspen, Pilar and Esperanza, three great-grandsons; Chase, Carson, and Isaac, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Memorial Services begin on Friday, May 16, 2014, with Visitation at 6:00 p.m. followed by a Rosary at 7:00 p.m. at Rosario Chapel, 499 North Guadalupe Street, in Santa Fe.
