May 20, 1930 - July 11, 2014

Bernardina "Nina" Cano, age 84, of La Mesa, NM entered eternal life on Friday, July 11, 2014, surrounded by her immediate and extended family and friends. Although Nina resided primarily in La Mesa, she was also a part time resident of Grand Junction for the last 19 years, while spending time with her daughter, Bernie, son-in-law, David, and grandchildren, Stephanie and Aaron Moreno. She was born May 20, 1930 in Barstow, Texas to Alberto and Hilaria Evaro.
Nina's passion in life, after retiring from NMSU as a Nutritional Aid, was spending time traveling to visit her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Nina had 17 grandchildren, and 17 great-grandchildren. She treasured her family and lived for meeting and making new friends, always "adopting" children wherever she visited. Her beautiful smile, sense of humor, and loving ways will be missed by all. Nina was devoted to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Ladies Auxiliary, where she served as vice-president of her local post and as District President of her District.
Survivors include seven children, Margaret Roybal (Ramon, deceased) of Dallas, TX; Beatrice Chavarria (Benny) of Omaha, NE; Jaime (Evelyn) of Columbus, OH; Michael (Valerie) of Dona Ana; Joel (Nancy) of Las Cruces; Robert (Angela) of Las Cruces, and Bernadine "Bernie" (David) of Grand Junction, CO. Nina is survived by two brothers, Albert (Matilda) of Las Cruces, NM, and Rudolfo (Margaret) of La Mesa. In addition, Nina is survived by six sisters, Damacia (Lalo, deceased); Sara (Pete, deceased), both from La Mesa, NM; Frances (Lalo), Mary (Juanito), both of Las Cruces, NM, and Kila (George) from El Paso, TX. Nina was preceded in death by her husband of 60 years, Manuel; her parents, and three brothers, Juan (Esther), Nicholas (Dolores), and Manuel (Estella) and one sister, Isabel Goodwin.
Per Nina's request, cremation has taken place, and a Memorial Mass will take place on Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 11:00 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, where Nina loved attending Mass with her family.
