Aurelia G. Ortiz Obituary
Ortiz, Aurelia G.



Our beloved mother and grandmother, Aurelia G. Ortiz, 87, went home to be with our heavenly father on Monday, June 27th, 2016, after a long struggle with Alzheimer's disease. She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who enjoyed sewing, cooking and spending time with her family.

She is preceded in death by her spouse of 66 years, Juan B. Ortiz, son Dennis J. Ortiz, daughter Diana Ortiz, her parents Antonio and Felicita Gallegos, brothers Jose and Andalecio Gallegos, and sister Ursula Gallegos.

Aurelia is survived by her daughter Margarita Ortiz y Flippo (Joseph); son Chris M. Ortiz (Grace); son Ernest S. Ortiz (Judy); daughter Judy Ortiz-Gonzales (Gary). She is also survived by eleven grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She is survived by her brother Ruben Gallegos ( Marylou); sisters Angie Gonzales (Adan), Grace Stein, (Gene), Tila Orr, Amanda Lindsay (Jim); as well as numerous other relatives and friends.

Aurelia was a lifelong and very devoted Catholic, a member of the San Miguel del Vado Parish. She was a very vibrant, friendly and generous woman who was always ready to lend a helping hand. She always had a smile and a kind word for everyone.

The family would like to thank Gentiva hospice staff, especially CNA Bernice Sandoval for their compassionate and loving care.

A Rosary will be recited on July 1, 2016 at The Shrine of St. Bernadette at 7 pm. Funeral services will be held Saturday, July 2, 2016, starting at 10 am at San Miguel del Vado Parish in Ribera, NM.
