CHOUINARD, CONSUELO MEYER (TINY) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. (2 Timothy 4:7). Consuelo (Tiny) Meyer Chouinard passed to the Promised Land May 7, 2014 just as she lived her life, with dignity, grace and gentle strength. She had an immense spirit and brought love and joy to all around her. Connie lit up a room with her contagious smile and had a joyful, vibrant presence. Her selfless nature and faith in God knew no bounds. Born in El Rito, NM March 6, 1926 Connie was raised in Las Vegas, NM. Connie held education in high esteem; attending Historic Loretto Academy in Santa Fe and completed her High School education from Benjamin Franklin HS in Los Angeles. Further studies included Behavioral Science and Education from Loretto College in Denver, Highlands University, and the University of New Mexico. She was awarded a Bachelors and a Master's Degree. She was an original employee in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project. Connie had a profound influence on NM youth, initially teaching Special Education, then Elementary Education for 33 years with APS. After retiring she was a substitute teacher and served as docent for the National Hispanic Cultural Center, El Rancho de las Golondrinas, and Maxwell Museum of Anthropology. She appreciated Arts and Culture, enjoyed playing the piano, and was a regular patron of Popejoy Hall events. She was an avid UNM Lobo fan. In the presence of God, Connie has now joined her son Richard and her parents Charles and Eloisa Meyer. Connie is survived by children, Donelle Murphy, David Chouinard, Patrice Wendlick (Scott), Lisa Chouinard (Steve), Victoria Chouinard, daughter-in-law Chris Chouinard, and stepson Mark Chouinard. Siblings, Marian Ackerman of Las Vegas, NM, Charles Meyer (Eda Mae) of Sun City, AZ, and Julius Meyer (Connie) of Albuquerque. 12 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends. "There is no death when one sees the foreverness of existence, the oneness, as an expression and offshoot from the main source of being- the very mind of God. Mortal time on earth is a vital training school. Death is but a gentle transition from one life to another. Of times it appears a trick of fate or a great tragedy but truly it's a glorious mission into eternity. Excerpt from "There Is No Death", Marian Ackerman. Rosary May 15 6:00 pm, and Mass of Christian Burial May 16, 9:15 at Sangre de Christo Catholic Church, 8901 Candelaria Rd, NE, Albuquerque, NM 87112.

Manuel grew chile and alfalfa on their two acre parcel, until his death in 1989. Rita was well known for her great sewing and baking skills, winning blue ribbons for her cookies at the State Fair. Rita eventually moved to Albuquerque to be near her two daughters. She lived at Encino Terrace until going into the hospital in late April, followed by a brief stay at Gentiva Hospice, where she remained until her passing on Sunday. Rita is survived by her three children, Concepcin "Concha" Lopez-Cherry and husband, Ned Cherry; Clarence Lopez and wife, Nancy Blackney-Lopez and Carleen Lopez; as well as grandchildren, Gabriel Harrington and Cristina Lopez-Cherry and Ethan and Estevan Blackney-Lopez; great-grandchildren, Hazel Mae Korce and Summer Corbin-Lopez; as well as numerous loving nieces and nephews, who remember her fondly for her kind and generous spirit.
