  • 06/01/14--00:00: Obituary for HIGGINS
  • HIGGINS, CAROL E. (EVANS) Passed away on Sunday, 25 May, after many years of courageous and erstwhile successful struggle against cancer. Born in December 1931 she was her mother's "Christmas Carol." It was during the Great Depression and one of our beloved mother's hardscrabble childhood joys was breeding and training tri-color collies. Her lifelong love of animals, which she shared with her younger surviving sister, Neil Evans, she conveyed to her four children, three of whom survive her: Leah Kim Higgins and husband Nathaniel Paul Tully; Bruce Higgins and wife Bonnie York Higgins of Flagstaff AZ; Mark Buckner Higgins with Tish Morris; two granddaughters Leila Higgins with Joe Fleishman, and Meira McKay and husband Eric and their two children Connor and Caitlyn and everyone's myriad dogs! Carol's youngest child, Paula Higgins, then married to Jerry Kiuttu, pre-deceased her in July 2006, as did her husband Philip Buckner Higgins who died in 1993. As a beautiful and bright 17-year-old attending college chemistry class, Carol met Philip Higgins, with whom she eloped to begin family life in Pescadero, CA where Philip was hired to maintain costal radio towers. The young family eventually returned to Utah where Carol began raising their first two children while Phil resumed colligate engineering studies on the greatly appreciated GI Bill. On Christmas Eve, 1954, Carol, with her family of five now, crossed the Rio Grande to live in Albuquerque. Phil had begun crucial Cold War work out at the burgeoning Sandia Labs. For years while the family rose into the Middle Class and relocated to the Village of Corrales, Carol labored hard as a stay-at-home mother now raising four children. Eventually she resumed her studies at UNM, earning a BA in English, an MS in Sociology, and an MA in Counseling. Carol was an accomplished cruciverbalist, birder, hiker and gardener; either active in or giving generously at various times, to the: NM Mountain Club, Audubon Society, Nature Conservancy, Planned Parenthood, Roadrunner Food Bank, and Animal Humane Society, among others. She read and travelled widely and had an artistic bent, evidenced in her drawings, paintings, ceramics and needlepoint works. She played accordion and piano, and loved Classical music. Tough when she needed to be, yet Carol loved people deeply and uniquely. We, her saddened survivors, will greatly miss our mother's broad humor; her intelligence and worldly curiosity; her spiritual seeking; her tender sympathies for all creatures both domestic and wild. We will even miss her often myopic determination to secure herself materially and emotionally from some hard lessons of an often bleak childhood. We love you Mom; we love you Grandma. We remember. We will always remember . . . Those of you who may recall Carol and are so inclined, please donate, in lieu of flowers or other such, in Carol's honor, to any of the aforementioned organizations.

  • FRITZ, DAVID BRUCE Age 64, of Tajique, NM, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 20, 2014. On July 25, 1949, David was born to Velten F. and Marian Hollerich Fritz in Albuquerque, NM. Blessed with a creative and curious mind and a hunger to live life to the fullest, David succeeded in all the endeavors of his life. David has lived his dream as an artist and outdoorsman. He hiked many mountain tops including the high peaks of Sierra Nevada. He engaged in the mysteries of life choosing opportunities that allowed him to travel the world, but he always returned to his beloved state of New Mexico, where he built his own home in the East Mountains. David loved and laughed for 37 years married to Stefa K. Zawerucha, a woman who laughed easily and joined him on his life journey. Together they danced and choreographed new avant-garde performance pieces. They got their undergraduate degrees in Dance at the University of New Mexico and their Master degrees in Dance at Mills College in Oakland, CA. David's skill as a carpenter excelled from building homes to creating beautiful wood carvings of three dimensional design that inspired abstract thought and intrinsic spirit. David was a Technical Director of the Tish School of the Arts at New York University in New York City, a job he loved where he met inquisitive students and creative colleagues who pushed each other to excel. David was deeply respected in his career as a choreographer and as an administrator who got things done. He received a Bessie, a New York Dance and Performance Award, for his thought provoking lighting design. He also received grants and awards from the New York State Foundation for the Arts and the New York Council on the Arts. David served his country honorably during the Viet Nam Conflict. His earthly cremains will be alongside his parents and grandparents below the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at the Santa Fe National Cemetery in Santa Fe, NM. David is survived by his wife, Stefa K. Zawerucha; his brothers, Stephen (Maria) of Albuquerque and Philip (Judy) of Portland, OR; three sisters, Jean Latham (David) of Rio Rancho, Mary Ellen Farrelly (David) of Albuquerque and Teri McMillan (Michael) of Rio Rancho; 11 nieces and nephews; and seven great-nieces and nephews; all whom he loved deeply.
