Our beloved mother, Genevieve A. Nolan, slipped peacefully from her earthly bonds on Oct. 17, 2018. She was born in Truchas, N.M., June 9, 1926, to Primitivo and Rebecca Archuleta who preceded her in death.
Others preceding her in death include her husband, Harry Nolan Sr., her son, Harry Nolan Jr.; daughter-in-law, Onesima Nolan, son-in-law, Robert P. Vigil, grandson Rene D. Vigil, brother Nelson Archuleta and sister, Olivama Martinez.
Survivors include her daughter, Becky Vigil and Frank Rendon and her son, Harold W. Nolan; granddaughters Rachel Vigil and Ben Santistevan, Jeanette Mercedes Nolan and wife Jessica L. Ortiz, Amanda Trujillo and husband Fidel Trujillo; grandsons Darian and wife Vicky Nolan and Ryan Nolan; great grandchildren Flavio, Julio, Leticia and Liana Vigil, Ivonae and Karli Vejil, Dylan Nolan, Joseph and Jace Trujillo and Tristan Nolan; siblings Frutoza Lopez, Matias and wife Josie Archuleta, Alex and wife Ruby Archuleta, Louise Giron, Lydia and husband Ralph Riley, Diana Archuleta, Sam and wife Kristine Herbert, Irma and husband Mike Fernandez; sister-in-law Fedelina Nolan and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
She graduated from Menaul High School and earned her bachelor's and master of arts degrees from New Mexico Highlands University. Having taught elementary school in Mora for over three decades, she made a positive contribution to the lives of many, and in return, garnered respect, affection, and friendship.
For her family, she was a source of love, strength and comfort, as throughout her life, she faced every challenge, every triumph, every sorrow with quiet grit, enduring grace, and abiding faith in Jesus Christ.
There are no words to express how very much she was loved or how very much she will be missed.
A rosary was held Monday, Oct. 22, 2018, at St. Gertrude's Church in Mora. Mass of Christian Burial was celebrated Tuesday at St. Gertrude's, followed by interment of cremains at the El Carmen Cemetery.
