Armanda Grace S. Morris
Armanda Sanchez–Morris, went to be with the Lord Jesus Christ on the morning of Jan. 4, 2014.
She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Louis, and by their children Mary Jane Manriquez, Betty Jean Garcia, Cynthia Ann Begazo, Melinda Lea Morris, Michael Wayne Morris and Dwayne Louis Morris. Also by her sisters Gloria Estrella, Simona Zamora, Lupe Douckley and Esther Landry; and brothers Raymond Sanchez, Delfido Sanchez, Poncho Rocha and Andy Rocha. She has 16 grandchildren and six great-grandkids. She leaves behind many, many nieces and nephews as well as cousins and other extended family members.
She was preceded in death by her father Vivian Sanchez and by her mother Pilar Guilez-Rocha; sisters Josephine Montoya, Carmen Rocha, Dolores Rocha, Victoria Sanchez and Elaine Schroeder; and brothers Pete Rocha, Chon Rocha and Mike Rocha.
To know Armanda was to know what unconditional love meant. She was a devoted wife and mother. Her greatest joy in life was children. She never saw a baby that she didn't love. Many years of her life were spent watching over the children of friends and the children of what would become life-long friends. It was a true gift from God. Her love for children also flowed to family and her closest friends and was never a second thought.
She was a God fearing woman who would go the extra mile to help those in need.
Services will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 18, 201,4 at the Flying J Ranch (Church out of Church) in Alto, N.M., off of U.S. Highway 48.
In lieu of flowers, we request that donations be made to the Armanda Morris Memorial Fund account at Wells Fargo Bank (Account # 1222702381).
The family wishes to express their gratitude for the acts of kindness and love that has been shown to them and to Armanda.
