Baxter, Nadia Stephanie  
NADIA STEPHANIE BAXTER Nadia Stephanie Baxter, 22, passed away on Monday, May 25. She was born to Karin Baxter King and Michael Baxter on September 28, 1992 in Santa Fe, NM. Nadia graduated from La Cueva High School in 2011, where she was the captain of the Cross Country team her junior and senior years. She also competed at the local and state level outside of school in National Reigning Horse Association competitions. After high school, Nadia went on to study biochemistry at the University of New Mexico as a pre-med student, volunteering at the UNM hospital pediatric emergency room. Vivacious and always inviting adventure, Nadia was happiest when exploring her dreams, spending time with family and friends, and skydiving. Her overriding motivation in life was to make a contribution and to help others, specifically by becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon. Nadia is survived by her mother, her father, her step-father, Kevin, her brother, Chris, her sister-in-law, Georgia, her grandparents, Hartmut and Karin Krieger, her uncle, Boris, and her aunt, Lulu, among countless other family members and friends. Taken too soon from this world, in the hearts of her family and those who knew her, her pursuit of good will never cease to inspire. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that a donation be made to UNM Hospital in her name. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday, May 30 at McGee Memorial Chapel at 1320 Luisa St., Santa Fe, NM, 87505. The family requests that all guests wear bright colors in honor of Nadia's wishes that her life be a cause for celebration.

De Baca, Antonio "Tony"  
ANTONIO TONY C' DE BACA Antonio "Tony" C' de Baca passed away on Mother's Day in Ft. Collins, Colo. He was 37. Tony leaves behind his beloved son Tristan, his fiancee Jennifer Shaffer, his mother Glenda Dean, step-father Percy Sandoval and his father David C' de Baca among many others who loved him. Tony's life will be celebrated with a remembrance on June 27 in Pecos. Tony was a successful musician and accomplished writer who performed with myriad musicans in Northern New Mexico and throughout Colorado. He was a guitar-driven solo performer and a band mate of Buddy and the Lush and the Lush Life. His distinctive Latin pop-rock sound earned him a loyal following in Santa Fe through the first decade of the 2000s before he relocated to Ft. Collins. He was a regular act at Fiestas de Santa Fe. He also recorded three albums during his career. Tony was a 1995 graduate of Santa Fe High and was voted Prom King his senior year. He attended New Mexico State University before devoting himself to music full-time. Tony was a loving and gracious friend with a strong will and sharp wit. His shows would commonly take a turn toward stand-up comedy then swerve sharply back to a pop gig. Tony was able to hold audiences with only his guitar and book of songs -- he would even free-style rap if the mood struck him or a challenge arose. Tony's voice was silenced, but his spirit and music will live on in the hearts of hundreds of friends, family and fans.

Gilliam, Julian  
JULIAN GILLIAM Julian Gilliam was a successful businessman; a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather; a wonderful story-teller; an avid gardener, hiker, and fisherman. He died peacefully at his home in Little Rock on May 16th, less than a month shy of his 95th birthday. He was born on June 14, 1920 in Forrest City to James Mullen Gilliam and Louise Gatling Gilliam. He often entertained friends and family with enthralling stories of his mischievous childhood in and around Forrest City, where he learned to hunt and fish with his father, older brother Henry, and many cousins. Gilliam's education was cut short by WWll. He signed up to be a radio operator, but was recruited to train as a fighter pilot with the Army Air Corps. After earning his wings, he was stationed first in Panama and then in Burma with the Second Air Commando Group. He flew 62 combat missions over Burma and Thailand and was decorated with the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, and the Purple Heart. One vivid story of his wartime adventures was of landing a plane that had been badly shot up, so much so that he had gotten out of the cockpit onto the wing to parachute to safety, but decided at the last minute that he should save the plane. He crawled back into the cockpit, and managed to land safely without losing the P-39. After the war, Gilliam joined his older brother, Henry, to start a ready-mix concrete business in El Dorado, Arkansas. It was also in El Dorado that he met Hope Wadsworth, originally from Westfield, New Jersey. They married in 1950, and had two daughters, Betsy Hall Gilliam and Julie Blount Gilliam. His daughters remember his droll sense of humor, so conspicuous in the clever woodland characters he invented to populate their bedtime stories. Recognizing that El Dorado's economy could not continue to support both growing families, Gilliam decided to expand to Little Rock. He relocated his family and launched the new division of Gilliam Brothers. The business prospered, and he was able to expand operations to three plants. In the early 1980's Gilliam constructed a port on the Arkansas River to handle cement for the growing business, and started a real estate and construction affiliate to take advantage of opportunities in the concrete tilt-up market. He sold Gilliam Brothers and retired in 1986. Inspired by the landscape and culture of Northern New Mexico on the way home from a ski trip in Colorado, Gilliam and his wife, an accomplished artist, bought a house in Santa Fe in 1975, where they spent much of their time through the 80's and 90's. He hiked, fished, and camped and she painted. It was there and on a small ranch in Vallecitos, New Mexico, that friends and family gathered for two decades. He leaves his daughters, Betsy Gilliam Trapp of Atlanta, Georgia, and Julie Gilliam Roth of Boston, Massachusetts; five grandchildren, and one great grandchild. His wife of 58 years died in 2008. The family would especially like to recognize and thank Debra Anderson, his long-time and devoted care-giver and Theresa Vogelpohl, MNSc, RN of Eldercare Decisions, his wise and patient geriatric care manager. A memorial service will take place on Friday, June 12th at 2pm at St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Little Rock. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the Nature Conservancy.

Klebanoff, Nina A.  
CELEBRATION OF THE LIFE OF NINA A. KLEBANOFF - 1953-2015 We would like you to know that the work of Nina A. Klebanoff, born November 2, 1953 to Robert and Betty Klebanoff in Albuquerque, NM is complete. She received a call to move on May 2, 2015. She did such a great job in her life she was offered a spectacular place where she will be dancing, listening to music, creating music playlists, recycling everything, skiing, or in the wilderness. Her life was full of caring, teaching, and most importantly nursing. Nursing was one of her major passions. She especially loved "home health" care working with older adults in their homes. She drove the back roads of north Texas and northern New Mexico talking and caring for older adults. She began her career in Denver where she received her diploma degree in nursing and later continued her education culminating in receiving her PhD. in nursing from Texas Woman University. She specialized in behavioral health working in hospitals, home care agencies, clinics and almost any other nursing venue. After working many years she ended her career Director of the RN to BSN degree at Northern New Mexico College. The program is based on the principles of holistic nursing and says much about Nina's philosophy in life. She believed and lived by the principles that everything is connected and living "with" the earth and the universe is the highest priority. Nina had many passions: art, being in the wild, kayaking, and most importantly skiing at Taos Ski Valley. She loved Taos so much that even in her last days she was telling her doctors to make a reservation at the St. Bernard to ski next year. Finally she had an insatiable curiosity and a ferocious intellect. She loved talking politics and great ideas, most always having an opinion about everything. We will all remember her enthusiasm for life and her energy to make a difference. She will be terribly missed by so many. Please join us to celebrate Nina's life with her wife Mellis Schmidt, her chosen family and her many friends June 13 at 2:00pm at Bishops Lodge in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Her ashes were buried where she grew up playing in the foothills of Moon Mountain, next to those of her child, Sean and parents artist Karl Larsson and musician Margaret Larsson, a founding Santa Fe Opera board member. Britta painted in watercolor, played the piano, guitar and recorder and sang folksongs in the 1960's at the Three Cities of Spain.

She gathered art supplies, brought in a piano and together they spent many happy hours making art and music. Britta attended Santa Fe High School with her best friend since infancy, Salli Mauzy Harrison. She graduated in 1965. Britta held court daily at Starbucks, telling stories with wit and charm, fearlessly executing the New York Times crossword puzzle in ink.
