Carolina "Nina" Maria Trujillo, 93, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away on September 12, 2016.

Nina was born on April 1, 1923 in Talpa, NM to Doloritas and Anastasio Maestas. Nina loved living in Black Lake, where she lived most of her life, working hard to raise her six kids and helping run the ranch. She also relaxed by feeding hummingbirds and picking wild flowers. She loved the color red and we are asking everyone to wear red for her funeral, as that was one of her wishes.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Ramon, infant son Raymond, son Victor, sisters Isabel Duran, Nestora Mondragon, brothers Joe Maestas, Dan Maestas, Pete Trujillo, and Willie Trujillo.

She is survived by five children, Lorenzo Trujillo and wife Irene, California, Jo Ann Layden, husband Larry, Black Lake, daughter-in-law, Isabel Trujillo, Robert Trujillo and partner Cara, Black Lake, Dolores Calvert and husband Paul, Albuquerque and MaryAnn Trejo and husband Saul, Rio Rancho, brother Ernest Trujillo, and wife Dolores, Utah, and sister Margaret Pino and husband Ermenio, Colorado Springs; 34 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She leaves many, many loved nieces, nephews, cousins, other family members and friends.

Rosary will be at Holy Angels Church on Friday the 23rd at 7 pm. Funeral services will be held at the Holy Angels Church in Angel Fire, NM, on September 24th at 10 am; and reception following mass. Interment will be at the family cemetery in Black Lake following the reception.
