  • 06/15/14--00:00: Obituary for JOHNSON
  • JOHNSON, GLENN K. Glenn Kenneth Johnson, 79, an Albuquerque resident since 2012, died on Thursday, May 29, 2014. Glenn will be remembered for his one-liners, love of travel, life-long dedication to music, devotion to family, commitment to the unique needs of the handicapped, and enthusiastic spirit of adventure such as chasing trains. He is survived by his wife, Karen; sons Brian and Keith Johnson of Fairbanks, AK; son Grant and wife Laura Johnson of Walnut Creek, CA; sister Bettie Sue and husband Milo Marquardt in Denver, CO; nieces Denise and Roger Dionne and Mel and Ed Westergaard in the Denver area; and numerous cousins in California. Glenn and Karen met in 1955 in Columbus GA where Glenn was stationed in the Army at Ft. Benning and Karen was a senior in high school. They dated briefly and when Glenn was transferred to Germany went their separate ways, marrying, raising families, and grieving the loss of spouses over the next 55 years. In October 2011, from his home of 42 years in Fairbanks, Glenn was reminded of Karen when he saw a photo taken in 1955 while they were dating and decided to call. They began phoning then skyping then face-to-face visiting and were married in May 2012, settling in Albuquerque. Glenn was preceded in death by his first wife, Nancy Dunnington and parents Ken and Lola Johnson. Glenn was community-minded, serving others through Rotary International, numerous educational and handicapped organizations, and playing in orchestras and bands for 75 years. He played tuba in the Albuquerque Concert Band and viola in the Symphony Orchestra of Albuquerque, HSC Orchestra (UNMH), and the Sinfonia at Central Methodist. He played violin at the age of 6 in San Francisco's World's Fair "Golden Gate International Exposition". He would tell you that he began playing the tuba in high school when he realized you couldn't play marching violin in the school band. Glenn traveled to over 50 countries around the world and all the states except North Dakota. He never knew a stranger, making friends all over the world. Our family sends blessings to the UNMH staff and Gentiva Inpatient Hospice staff for their professionalism and for treating Glenn and us like cherished family. We also give thanks for our family and friends who loved and supported us throughout Glenn's illness. A memorial service will be held at Central United Methodist Church on Saturday, June 21 at 1:00 PM. The church is located at 201 University NE. A reception will follow in the church's fellowship hall. Contributions may be made to Albuquerque Concert Band or Symphony Orchestra of Albuquerque.

  • HENRIQUEZ, JOYCE ELIZABETH CLAIRE ARCHER Joyce was born on March 16, 1923 in Toronto, Canada to Cyril and Ida Archer. Much of her childhood was spent in Vancouver, Washington, and Northern California. She and her sister, Lois were talented singers and dancers and performed in nightclubs in San Francisco during WWII. It was there that she met the love of her life, George Henriquez, a lieutenant in the US Air Force. They married in 1944 and traveled from base to base: Florida, Mississippi, Albuquerque, Denver, England, California, and back to Albuquerque when George retired. One of her proudest achievements was becoming a naturalized American citizen. During that time, she learned to cook, making favorite dishes of arroz con pollo, garbanzo bean soup, and coffee pie. Joyce also became expert in sewing, knitting, embroidery, and crocheting, talents she passed on to her daughter. She taught knitting and was buyer-manager of the knitting department at Fedway for several years. Later, she took up beading and created many extraordinary pieces of jewelry and beaded clothing. She assisted George in the making of his jewelry by helping him cast his silver najas and by stringing the necklaces he made. During the 70's and 80's, Joyce (with George) produced and directed two arts and crafts shows annually. She loved animals, especially cats; she will be missed by those kitties, especially Pretty Girl, Pepe, and Ivory. She grew beautiful orchids and loved butterflies and hummingbirds. She was a strong woman, surviving heart problems, breast cancer, and a stroke. Joyce was an elegant beautiful lady who read voraciously, who always had an opinion about politics and who loved her family fiercely. Joyce was predeceased by her husband, George; her parents; and her sister. She is survived by her daughter, Leah and her husband, Mark Ready. She will be buried at the Santa Fe National Cemetery with George. Please join us for a celebration of her life at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 15, 2014 at Monroe's Restaurant on Osuna (between San Mateo and San Pedro). She will be greatly missed.

  • 06/15/14--00:00: Obituary for DURAN
  • DURAN, PETER G. JR. September 15, 1934 June 6, 2014 Dear Dad, I'm sorry I was not there at the end and that my call to say goodbye came only minutes too late when the nurse discovered you had left this earth after 79 years. I'm sure you are being comforted by your parents, Julia Sandoval Duran and Peter G. Duran, as well as by your siblings Renetta Duran Casias, Julian "Buzzy" Duran and Juliette Duran Wolff who preceded you in death. I wish you lasting peace in their company. You grew up in one of the seven founding families of Old Albuquerque with hardworking, faithful parents -- a doting mother and the original pharmacist and owner of Duran Central Pharmacy. You had the advantages of a parochial education and a UNM law degree yet traditional "success" and internal peace were evasive. Your high school graduation photo shows a young man with promise. You were most proud of your service in the Marines during the Korean War and the time spent coaching basketball. In 1965, Mom fell in love with that promise seeing the closeness you had with your family and your desire to create change during a time of political unrest. Leaving Albuquerque when I was 14 and only seeing you a handful of times since, I'm not able to say much about the second half of your life. I know you continued to love basketball, politics and crossword puzzles. From your hospital bed you identified yourself as a "left wing democrat" and someone who had "tried to be a good Catholic." Lacking connections to your own family, I'm grateful you found good samaritans who offered food, a place of refuge and personal connection. I'm sure you would thank Theresa at Bank of the West on Central, Joe and his wait-staff from Mannies on Central, Abdul and his family from the recently-sold convenience store on Carlisle, Dani and Dion from your neighborhood, Art Casias Jr., your oldest nephew who recently passed, and your long-time friend Sam L. Baca. May we all be as kind and reach out to those who cross our paths alone. I thank you for the legacy you left me: Southwest roots, pride in a hometown chock full of relatives, value in education and social advocacy. Your DNA lives on in my children and you paved a path that allowed me to find my most responsible, caring husband. I'm glad you were able to meet each of them. I hope you're not offended by the fact that there will be no service. You will be put to rest with the family at Mt. Calvary Cemetery. I, my husband, Mike McHugh (Oregon); your son, Mark Duran (Wisconsin); your grandsons, Logan McHugh (Oregon), Duncan McHugh (Oregon), and Paolo Duran (Poland); your nieces and nephews, Theresa Casias, Cecelia Casias, Elaine Casias Armijo (Oklahoma), Greg Duran, Timothy Duran, Julie Duran Kitch, Donna Wolff Madrid, and Gerald Wolff; and your ex-wife Paulette "Toby" Case (Wisconsin), will say a prayer for you, each in our own way, and hope that we have learned to hold dear to our families and reach out to others who may be alone. May You Rest in Peace, Your Daughter Michelle Duran McHugh (Portland, Oregon)
