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.

"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.
