ALONZO, CATALINO - El Paso  
Our beloved Catalino "Pacho," Alonzo, passed away on Thursday, April 21, 2016 with family by his side, just nine days before his 82nd birthday. Pacho was born on April 30, 1934 in the impoverished but tight-knit community of Smeltertown where he began his life. He went on to serve in the United States Navy for four years aboard the USS Newport News on the Mediterranean Sea during the Korean War. After retiring from the service, he worked diligently as an inspector at William Beaumont Army Medical Center for the next 30 years, where he received many awards for his employment. Pacho was the epitome of virtue, a true pillar of wisdom, and even-tempered rationality that brought balance to his entire family. He was a simple man who valued his family, integrity over money, and trusted fully in God's will. He was a man of few words but expressed genuine heartfelt emotion. Perhaps his greatest sources of pride were the accomplishments of his grandchildren: engineers, police officers, doctors, teachers, writers, and fathers, who cherish, and uphold his unwavering work ethic in their own lives. Pacho was preceded in death by his first son, Felix Alonzo, who passed away in October 2009, and six of his eleven siblings. He is survived by his devoted wife of 60 years, Adelina Alonzo, his brothers: Luis, Alberto, Jose Alonzo, his sisters: Francisca De Santos, Socorro Lozano, his daughters: Patricia Anne Alonzo, Leticia Miller (Bill), his son: Gilbert Alonzo, seven grandchildren: Dr. William Paul Miller(Dr. Jessica Miller), Eric David Miller (Katie), Robert Patrick Miller (Teresa), Gilbert Alonzo Jr; Dr. Christopher Anthony Alonzo, Jacquelyn Batton, and Stacey Michelle Alonzo, and three adorable great-grandchildren: Leon, Morgan, and Liam Miller. His family regrets that he will not be around to witness the birth of two more great-grandchildren expected this year, but his wise spirit, compassionate nature, and lively storytelling will live on in each of them. Pacho has earned a burial with a traditional 21-gun salute at Fort Bliss National Cemetery with full military honors for his service in the United States Navy. Visitation will be on Tuesday, April 26, 2016 from 5-9pm at Hillcrest-Carolina with a vigil at 7pm. Funeral Mass will be on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 at 12:30pm at St. Mark Parish, 11700 Pebble Hills. Interment to follow at Fort Bliss National Cemetery, 5200 Fred Wilson ETA 2pm. Services are under the direction of Hillcrest Funeral Home, 1060 N. Carolina, 598-3332.

ARMISTEAD, GLORIA - El Paso  
Gloria Diane Armistead August 4, 1928 - April 27, 2016 Gloria Diane Farah Armistead peacefully fell asleep in our Lord Jesus Christ during the late evening of Wednesday, April 27, 2016, at the Good Life Senior Living Center in El Paso, Texas. Gloria was born on August 4, 1928, in Beaumont, Texas. She was the second youngest of six children born to Amelia and John Farah, Jr. Gloria graduated from Beaumont High School in 1945 and undertook additional studies at Angelo's Business College in Beaumont, Texas. In 1965, Gloria moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and began working at Louisiana State University. She remained at LSU for next 13-years. Her employment included serving as secretary to the Chair of LSU's Department of Management. Gloria left LSU when her younger brother Harry, who had established an architectural practice in El Paso, convinced Gloria and her older sister Yvonne to join him in El Paso. They both moved to El Paso in 1978. In El Paso Gloria found employment at the University of Texas at El Paso where she worked as an Administrative Assistant in the UTEP's Department of Economics and Finance under the direction of the Department Chair, Professor Timothy P. Roth. Dr. Roth noted that Gloria cherished her relationship with the academic community, and that she appreciated the importance of the University's, the College's and the Department's commitment to access and to excellence and, above all, to student success and faculty productivity. Gloria remained at UTEP for 24-years, retiring in 2003. Gloria was a woman of faith. Prior to moving to El Paso, Gloria was an active member of Beaumont's St. Michael Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church. She acquired an extensive knowledge of the liturgical services and took an active role in the spiritual life of the church. Upon moving to El Paso, Gloria joined Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church. At St. George, she was involved in numerous organizations including the Society of Orthodox Youth Organizations, the Saint George Ladies Society, and the Fellowship of St. John the Divine. For almost two decades, she served as a chanter and in the Church choir under the direction of her spiritual godson, Sub-deacon Michael Sifuentes. She also managed the Church Bookstore and, every May during the Church's annual "Feast in the Middle East," Gloria operated a concession booth selling books, icons and religious gifts. Gloria was a devoted daughter, sister, aunt, and godmother. She was preceded in death by her brothers Constantine, Emile, Ledor, and Harry, and by her sister Yvonne Farah; she is survived by her nephew Shaheen Farah and his wife Kerri of Beaumont, Texas, by her niece Amelia Lyons and her husband Gene of Odessa, Texas, and by two grandnieces, two grandnephews, two great grandnieces, and three great grandnephews. Special recognition is due to Gloria's close friend and guardian, Patty Chagra Russell, who acted as Gloria's confidant, advocate, and frequent companion over the last few years. Special thanks are due to the loving and conscientious staff of Good Life Senior Living and to the compassionate staff of Hospice of El Paso for caring for Gloria during the last difficult part of her life. A Trisagion Service will be held on Wednesday, May 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the Martin Funeral Home located at 128 North Resler Drive ( www.martinfuneralhomewest.com ) . Gloria's funeral will be held on Thursday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m. at Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Church located at 120 North Festival Drive with the Reverend Father George M. Al-Dehneh officiating. Interment will follow at Evergreen Alameda Cemetery where Gloria will be laid to rest in the Farah Family Plot. The family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of contributions to Saint George Antiochian Orthodox Church. May her memory be eternal.
