  • 06/22/14--00:00: Obituary for HETES
  • HETES, HELGA E. Oh how I wish I was fifty years old, my life would be trimmed in gold. I'd still be living with my wife, I'd still be having a wonderful life. I'd be able to look her in the eye and wonder how come I'm the lucky guy? I only know what God gave to me, a gray eyed woman full of beauty. With me she stayed through thick and thin saying - to do it over I'm ready to begin. To go through life with you once more. Wow! What a dream, just open that door. I too think of such as do you my love, but alas babe, it can't be for you are now in heaven above. You were given to me as a great gift, my serious demeanor and dour heart to uplift. When I remember the times we had I look upon them and my heart is glad and I'm pulled up from my sad loneliness. You my sweet Helga will I forever bless. Yes, I have known one of God's best and I will love you until I'm laid to rest. By your side once more I will hold your hand eternally through ages measured by the shifting sands. Happy Birthday Helgalein! Ron and Family

He survives her and resides at their family home in Lemitar, New Mexico. Their union was blessed with two daughters, Delaney Baca of Socorro, New Mexico and Lilli Craddock, of Tyler, Texas. They will forever celebrate and honor her memory. Joye especially counted among her loved ones, sons-in-law, Abie Baca, III of Socorro and Cameron Craddock of Tyler, Texas. We would like to especially note that one of Joye's greatest honors in life was being the world's proudest Granny to Audrianna Rose Baca.

Also among virtues was courage and this was evident at an early age. As a child she fancied herself a bull rider and once beat out four boys at the Socorro County Fair to win a prized belt buckle. Joye was an animal lover and was especially fond of her pets. She was an avid reader and appreciated the simple beauty in things, such as flowers, music and a good laugh with a friend. Joye was a woman of strong faith a genuine light in this world. She had a special fondness for hummingbirds and similar to them she was here just long enough to show us something wonderful to marvel at before she soared away to Heaven. It gives her family peace and strength knowing she is there.

  • FERNANDEZ, VICENTE R. Chente, the following are a few words from mom, sis and I. On the fifth anniversary of your passing, we all wanted to share a few words with you. Mom says, "My precious Chente, not a day goes by that I don't pray for you and miss you. I know with every passing day I get closer to seeing you again and never having to say goodbye again. Your mommy longs to see you, but in the mean time, mi hijito, don't leave me alone and watch over me please. Rest in peace my precious baby boy." Sis says, Chente, "I'll never understand why God had to take you so suddenly. Everyday I wake up and pray it's a bad dream and then I walk passed your memorial picture and realize we will not sit around and laugh with you in this lifetime as a family again. The pain without you here with us is overwhelming and we all lose it often when we speak of you. I miss you and pray for your peace everyday." Finally, my words for you are simply that I love you, miss you everyday, do my best to take care of mom and pray that you know how hard it is to face everyday without you here. May the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ keep you and know you'll never be forgotten. Chente, your family will always love and pray for you.

  • 06/22/14--00:00: Obituary for DWYER
  • DWYER, SHIRLEY JEAN DIETMEIER 5/6/1925 ~ 6/17/2014 Shirley J. Dietmeier was born on May 6, 1925 in Downer's Grove, Illinois to C. Richard Dietmeier & Verna Lena Garrison Dietmeier. Shirley had three brothers, Richard, (1917-2001), Joseph (1923-2007), and Robert (1928-2007). Shirley was the first girl in three generations on her father's side, and was a celebrated child on Saratoga Avenue. She was bright, cheerful, and active, and despite a heart murmur was a cheerleader in high school. Shirley was an independent young woman who convinced her parents that she should attend college. She embarked on the train to the University of New Mexico, where she joined Chi Omega sorority, her home during college. It was through the Greek fraternal community that she met her future husband, George William Dwyer, engineering major and member of the Sigma Chi fraternity; in 1945 Shirley was chosen as the Sweetheart of Sigma Chi. Shirley and George married on October 22, 1946, and welcomed their first child, Leslie Ann, on George's 24th birthday in Downer's Grove in 1949. Leslie was followed by the births of Brian Richard in 1951, Linda Jean in 1953, and Jon William in 1956, all in Albuquerque, NM. Shirley was an enthusiastic mother, who emphasized nutrition and exercise long before it became popular. Her children grew accustomed to friends bewildered by her offers of wheat germ or fresh low-sugar treats and her exercising along with fitness pioneer Jack LaLanne's television program. She cultivated a garden of New Mexico State Fair prize winning roses. She was an expert seamstress, making gowns from Vogue patterns for important events. She was also a loving wife, and her children recall a happy parental couple who slow-danced in the kitchen. For years, Shirley and George and the children were content on Mossman Place in Albuquerque before moving to Las Vegas, Nevada for George to work at the Nevada Test Site. In 1969, Shirley returned to Albuquerque where she worked for the University of New Mexico until she retired. It was during these years that Shirley undertook a period of creativity, painting exquisite watercolors and crafting ceramic pots. Shirley was a docent at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History, a volunteer for the Santa Fe Opera, a long time patron of the Albuquerque Little Theater, and an aficionado of musical productions. Shirley was also for many decades an active member of St. John's United Methodist Church in Albuquerque, NM. In addition to her four children, Shirley raised her grandson, Dustin Ammon (b. 1975) after his father, Brian Richard, died in 1983. Shirley moved from Albuquerque to Ft. Collins, CO in January, 2003. She settled into her new home at Ft. Collins Good Samaritan Retirement Village where she lived independently until July, 2011. Shirley enjoyed a rich and varied life at Good Samaritan. With her abiding smile and gregarious nature, Shirley made friends and sustained relationships throughout the community, where many of Shirley's friends became close to her family as well. Shirley enjoyed participating in the choir each Sunday and derived profound joy from singing the annual cantatas. She attended weekly history lectures and group discussions and for a time oversaw the community rose garden. Naturally, Shirley also provided menu and nutritional advice and attended exercise sessions as long as she was able. Shirley thrived in nursing care for three years, under the competent and loving attention of the Skilled Nursing care providers. She received the nurturing of Pathways Hospice during parts of that final season of her life. The quality and span of Shirley's life would not have been possible without the excellence of the staff of Good Samaritan, the devotion of the residents of Good Samaritan, and the competence of the team from Pathways Hospice. Shirley's family expresses their heartfelt and enduring appreciation to each and every one of them. Shirley will be remembered for her joie de vivre, love, faith, imagination, inventiveness, self-reliance, elegance, charm, vitality, and her decree that one should always seek the good in others. She will also be remembered for her optimistic and at times quixotic nuggets of wisdom. Shirley was preceded in death by her parents in 1971 and 1974, her son, Brian, in 1983, and her brothers in 2001 and 2007. She is survived by Leslie Dwyer and husband John Perzow of Ft. Collins, CO; Linda Potter and husband Cal Potter, III of Las Vegas, NV; Jon William Dwyer of Las Vegas, NV; and grandchildren Dustin Dwyer, of Albuquerque, NM; Allison Potter, of Santa Monica, CA; Cal Potter, IV and wife Jenna, of Las Vegas, NV; Bethany Potter, of Melbourne, AUS, and Sarah Perzow, of State College, PA. She also leaves behind nephews Jon Michael Dietmeier and wife Sara, of Las Vegas, NV, and Bill Dietmeier and wife Bonnie, of Northbrook, IL; and nieces P. J. Dietmeier of Corrales, NM, and Lisa Dietmeier Sill and husband Patrick Sill of Delray Beach, FL. A memorial service was held on Friday, June 20, 2014 at Fort Collins Good Samaritan Chapel.
