Faride's family extends from far West Texas across the Southwest. Her legacy as the matriarch of a large, robust and vital family is a measure of the beauty and profundity of her life. Deeply loved by all who knew her, whether it be the Sensational Seven, high school classmates from Las Cruces High School, or fellow students from Holy Cross School here in Las Cruces, her life touched so many.
