  • MORA, DOLORES MARIA Age 92, a lifelong resident of Bernalillo, NM, went home to the Lord on Friday, August 15, 2014 surrounded by her loving family. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and will be deeply missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her two sons, David N. Mora and wife Angie of San Jose, CA and Robert L. Mora and wife Rachel of Las Vegas, NV; five grandchildren, Nic (Nicky), Anthony and wife Mandi, Julian, Kristina and husband David, and Catrina; eight great-grandchildren, Katelyn, Paige, Danica, Alexandra, Eli, Trace, Tyler and Leah; sister Ignacita Tenorio; caretaker, Nora Bolivar and son Anthony; plus numerous other relatives and friends. Dolores was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Nick Mora after 61 years of marriage; parents, Liberato Montoya and Victoriana Lopez Montoya; and brother, Ernest Montoya. Dolores was born in December of 1921 in Bernalillo, NM. After graduating from high school she was employed by the Bernalillo Mercantile Company as a cashier and bookkeeper for many years. Dolores then worked as the bookkeeper for the Albuquerque Blueprint Company for a number of years. She returned to the Bernalillo Mercantile Company to support the closure of the business. She managed the final business and customer account receivables. She was one of the last employees to leave the company. Dolores enjoyed farming and ranching and worked right alongside Nick on their fruit and vegetable farm in Bernalillo. One of her favorite tasks in the fall was preparing fruit and vegetable arrangements for judging at the New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque, where she won numerous blue ribbons, competing with many of the larger farms in the state. Work in the retail industry gave Dolores the experience and background needed to embark on her second career and dream of owning her own business. Together with a co-worker from the Bernalillo Mercantile they opened the Central "Y" Gift Shop in Bernalillo. When her partner retired Dolores continued to run the business all by herself for many more years.

Born January 19, 1921 in Clovis, NM, J.B. was the 2nd generation of eastern New Mexico homesteaders. A 1939 graduate of Clovis High School, J.B. also attended Eastern New Mexico University where he was on the "Roll of Honor". By March of 1941, he was employed by the Santa Fe Railroad as a machinist apprentice. In July of 1942, J.B. married Paula M.

Hendrix in 1970, mother: Ruby B. Leach in 1972, sisters: Aileen Fay in 1962 and Pauline (Punk) in 2010 and his beloved wife, Paula in 1996. J.B. was the last male of this Hendrix line. When World War II began, railway workers were exempt from military service due to the vital national security of the railroads. By May of 1943, because so many of his friends in the New Mexico National Guard were called to active duty and became embattled on the island of Bataan; he could no longer remain on the sidelines. He enlisted in the United States Navy on May 05, 1943 and served as a machinist aboard the USS Hoggatt Bay, CVE 75, a small aircraft carrier. Their field of operation was the Central and South Pacific. The USS Hoggatt Bay became known as "the sub-doer" because of her high achievement of sinking enemy submarines. At the end of WW II, citing seven specific Pacific campaigns; the Secretary of the Navy awarded the Navy Unit Commendation to the Ship, Her Crew and the attached Air Squadrons for outstanding heroism in action against the enemy forces in the air, ashore and afloat. J.B. was discharged from the Navy in November of 1945. Upon his discharge, J.B. returned to work for the Santa Fe and began to build a successful 40 year career. He designed and helped develop specialized hydraulic equipment for the railroad and retired in 1983 as Engineer of the Centralized Work Equipment Shops; overseeing 173 employees and the maintenance of 12,500 miles of the rail system. An avid outdoorsman and early environmentalist, J.B. grew up hunting and fishing; he continued to fly fish into his 90s. He and his father, along with Officer Don Price of the NM Fish and Game Division, were instrumental in establishing a haven in eastern NM for the wild life of the region, as well as preserving a small part of the Llano Estacado; now known as the Running Water Draw and the Ned Houk Park. He was an officer and active in the VFW for many years and participated and held office in the USS Hoggatt Bay Assoc.; hosting a highly successful Albuquerque ship's reunion in 2002. With a 5th wheel trailer, he and Paula traveled across the USA and went camping and fishing with dear friends for many years. He mastered fly tying, learned the art of Comanche Bead Work from a tribal member, grew gardens that fed family and neighbors and was always ready to lend a helping hand to others. In his late 60s, J.B. embraced the holistic health field and practiced herbology, reflexology and other energetic techniques. He also studied with the noted American herbalist, the late Hanna Kroeger and various spiritual and energetic teachers. Finding love once again, he married Florence E. Barker in April of 1999 and she survives him. He is also survived by his daughters: Sharalynn Rocha, of Denver, CO, Anita Hendrix (John Juric) of Belen, NM and Rhonda Hendrix (Kevin Haddock) of Reno, NV.

Jordan was born February 8, 1918 in Des Moines, Iowa and grew up in Dallas Center, Iowa where his father P. B. Glew was a physician and his mother, Veva H. Glew was a nurse. He always loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing and swimming were his passions. Jordan was married to the former Clara Rhinehart for fifty-six years.

He was mainly stationed in Cerignola, Italy at Torreta Field. From there his crew completed 36 harrowing missions over Germany, Romania, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Austria, Italy and France. After the war, he worked for the Banes Company in Albuquerque building metal buildings. In 1950 he started his own business with a friend, Jack Heagy, to build metal buildings and chain link fence. This later became the J. J. Glew Company, which was well-known in Albuquerque and New Mexico for quality work. They received many government contracts as well as work at the State Fair and the power plants in the Four Corners area . Clara and Jordan moved to T or C after retirement where they continued to hunt, fish, boat and RV. Jordan always wore a cowboy hat and loved and owned horses for many years.

Romans 8:36-38 Our beloved son, brother and father Matthew suddenly passed away Monday August 18, 2014. He was born January 17, 1980 in Albuquerque, NM.

  • BROWN, HAROLD September 17, 1917 - August 14, 2014 The final chapter in the life of Harold Brown came to an end on August 14, 2014. Born in 1917 in Lawrence, Massachusetts, he attended Harvard University and Harvard Medical School. He served in the U.S Army Medical Corps in Europe during the latter part of WWII. His career in academic medicine spanned four decades as a teacher, researcher, and administrator. Early years were spent at the University of Utah Medical School in Salt Lake City, and the largest segment of his career was at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Appointments as Visiting Professor also brought him to Thailand, China, and Colombia. After retirement, Harold and his wife Norma, who died in 2012, resettled in Santa Fe. They lived for ten years in the Sunlit Hills area and spent their final years at El Castillo. Their love of travel and interest in other cultures carried them to every continent with the exception of Antarctica. Harold was an active member of a reading group and gave generously of his time in many capacities. He was an Ombudsman for the NM Agency on Aging and a tax aide for AARP. Other organizations for which he worked included the El Castillo Residents Association, the Unitarian Church, the U.S./China People's Friendship Association, and the Council on International Relations. His was a life well lived. He will be missed by all who knew him.
