JEANNETTE A. LARRAGOITE Jeannette Alexandra Larragoite, 67, of Santa Fe, New Mexico passed away on Monday, May 12, 2014 with her husband, Mark, and her dog, Rusty, by her side. Jeannette, who started her teaching career in East Los Angeles, retired from the Santa Public Schools. She was a dedicated and inspiring bilingual first grade teacher. Her entire career with the Santa Fe Schools was at Kearny Elementary School, where she shared her love and knowledge with her first grade "babies." She had the gift of remembering the name of every student she taught. Jeannette also loved animals, which she shared with her students - they remember the fish, snakes, birds and other animals that shared their classroom. Jeanette also served on the Bilingual Development Committee, School Improvement Committee; Principal Search Committee, Kappa Delta Pi, and Epsilon Alpha Gamma. She participated in the Training Institute for Language Assessment in Guadalajara, Mexico and the Institute on Children's Literature in Madrid, Spain. She was awarded the Partners in Education Teachers Who Inspire Award in April 2000. Jeannette was preceded in death by her mother Eva Lopez Larragoite. She is survived by her husband, Mark Remington; son, Carlos Vasquez Jr. (Tatiana) and grandchildren, Cruz and Clio; stepson, Gene Hamilton (Carrie) and grandchildren, Austin and Conner; father, Alfonso Larragoite Sr.; brothers, Alfonso Jr. (Joy) and Patricio (Charlotte); niece, Teresa Allison (Randy); nephew, Stephen Larragoite; and great nieces, Diana Kay and Eva Allison. She is also survived by many uncles, aunts, cousins and other relatives from the Lopez and Larragoite families.
