Stark Jr., William McDermott  
WILLIAM MCDERMOTT STARK JR. The Reverend William McDermott Stark Jr. was born in St. Louis, MO, March 17, 1936, and died August 24, 2016 at home in Santa Fe, NM, with his daughters at his side. He died after a swift decline from metastatic cancer. He is survived by daughters Marg of Coronado, CA; Cate of Kansas City, MO; sons-in-law Duke and Brian; grandsons Patrick, Liam, Taylor, and Spencer; as well as sister Jenny Womble of New Port Richey, FLA. A retired Presbyterian pastor, Bill served multi-racial congregations in Detroit, MI; Indianapolis, IN; Kansas City, MO; New York City, NY and concluded his career with an interim in Baltimore, MD. Bill was a graduate of Northwestern University, McCormick Seminary, and later received his doctorate from Louisville Theological Seminary. Active in civil rights, peace, and social justice advocacy throughout his life, Bill was one of the ministers who marched with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. at the 1963 March on Washington and he served as a bus captain for those who traveled from the Midwest to tense 1965 Selma to Montgomery march. His specialty in ministry was bringing diverse people together in vibrant congregations focused on social justice. In his retirement he was an active volunteer with Veterans for Peace, PFLAG of Santa Fe, and at his church Westminster Presbyterian. But his most treasured role was that of caregiver for his wife, Joyce Cushman Stark, who passed away in August 2015 of dementia. They were married for more than 50 years.

Tapia, Sylvia Ann  
SYLVIA ANN TAPIA Sylvia Ann Tapia, age 49, died Tuesday August 16, 2016 after a lengthy illness. She was preceded in death by her mother Josie Fritzie Tapia and her father Jose Phil Tapia, brothers Jose Joaquin Tapia, Joe Phillip Tapia and sister Olivia Tapia. Sylvia was born on October 16, 1966 in Santa Fe, NM. To many known as "CB", she was the most patient, kind, and loving soul. If you had the chance to meet Sylvia you were able to see the room light up with her smile and her hugs. She would sit with you and enjoy a nice cold coke or make you laugh with her funny statements "I saw you", "oh mess", "Hey", or "Eee no." Despite living with Down Syndrome, Sylvia showed us that she was not someone with a disability, but rather a person with special abilities. She loved dancing to Spanish music, going out to eat, walking in the mall, going for ice cream, and getting her nails done in pink, of course. She made friends wherever she went and will never be forgotten. We have so many special memories of Sylvia and we appreciate all who made a difference in her life including family, friends, therapists and Presbyterian home health/hospice nurses. Sylvia will forever be in our hearts. Sylvia is survived by her sister Cecilia Tapia and Chris Muller, brothers Ramon Tapia and Marylou Ortiz, Robert Tapia, Gerard Tapia and wife Tammy Maloof, James Tapia, and Manuel Tapia. She is also survived by two aunts Mary Duran and Tillie Trujillo as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins who she loved dearly. She is also survived by her special niece Jessica Muller. Serving as pallbearers will be Ramon Tapia, Robert Tapia, Gerard Tapia, James Tapia, Manuel Tapia and Chris Muller. Honorary pallbearers will be Eddie Saiz and Dana LaMonda. Rosary and Visitation will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 24, in the Berardinelli Family Funeral Chapel. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St Anne's Catholic Church at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 25. Interment will follow at Santa Fe National Cemetery.

VIGIL, TERESITA  
MEMORIAL MASS FOR TERESITA VIGIL A Memorial Mass for Teresita Vigil will be held at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe Santuario on Saturday, August 27th at 8:00 a.m. Another mass for Teresita will be held at St. Francis Cathedral on Wednesday, August 31st at 5:15 p.m. Our Teresita entered her eternal home on July 2nd. To this day we remember her walking to attend daily mass at the Cathedral and then walking to Our Lady of Guadalupe Blessed Sacrament Chapel to spend quiet time before the Blessed Host praying her rosaries and novenas. Teresita was a beautiful lady who always wore her Mantilla and carried her purse full of prayers and novenas. Knowing of her strong faith to Our Blessed Mother, she would walk the annual processions and attend the novena masses in honor of Our Lady of La Conquistadora, Our Lady of Fatima Blue Army, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, as well as novena masses in honor of St. Francis. She loved to attend the annual Santa Fe Fiestas and other church festivities. VAYA CON DIOS, TERESITA, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

WALLIS, MARGARET JEAN STAMPFER  
MARGARET JEAN STAMPFER WALLIS 7-1-1925 TO 8-19-2016. Jean was born in Dubuque, IA in 1925. Her father decided to "move west" and the family landed in New Mexico in 1937. Jean attended Sandia Girls' School in Albuquerque and Brownmoor School, located at Bishops' Lodge in Santa Fe. After graduating from UNM, in 1949 she married Hup Wallis, whom she met while both were working summer jobs at Bishops' Lodge. Jean and Hup moved to Los Alamos, where Hup worked and son William was born. In 1952 Jean, Hup, and Bill moved to Albuquerque, where son David was born. Jean worked several jobs while they raised their boys. Jean achieved her real estate license and went to work selling houses, which she loved. Jean and Hup purchased forest property in southern Colorado and she forever enjoyed spending family time at the cabin in the woods. After Hup died in 1977, Jean returned to Santa Fe and worked for Barker realty. Jean loved Santa Fe and felt connected to the art and history of the area. When she retired, she stayed in Santa Fe until her death. Jean was a beautiful and gracious woman who had many interests and thought highly of her friends and family. Preceding her in death were her parents Peg and Fred Stampfer, her husband H.S. "Hup" Wallis, and grandson Olin Wallis. Jean is survived by her sons Bill of Arvada CO (Melody, Jeremy and Darren) and David of Albuquerque (Terri), granddaughter Meredith of Juneau AK, and brother Ted Stampfer of Santa Fe (Anne, Jeff and Becky). Jean's family greatly appreciates the kindness of the staff at El Castillo and Ambercare. For those who wish to make a memorial donation, Jean supported the work of The Heart and Soul Animal Sanctuary (369 Montezuma Ave. #130, SF, NM 87501) and The Santa Fe Animal Shelter (100 Caja del Rio Rd, SF NM 87507). The family will plan a private celebration of Jean's life in the weeks to come.
