Irene A. Rios Obituary
Rios, Irene A.

Irene A. Rios, beloved daughter, wife, mother, nana and GG mom passed away on Monday, December 28, 2015.

She was preceded in death by her parents Anthony and Lottie Diaz; her husband of sixty-four years Rudolph Rios; her granddaughter, Jenee Torrez and brother, Anthony Diaz Jr.

Irene is survived by her only child Renee and #1 son-in-law Joe W. Torrez Jr.; her only grandchild, the light in her life, Anthony R. Torrez and wife Jessica who she loved dearly and her pride and joy, great-granddaughter, Makayla Brooklyn Torrez.

Irene was a professional hairstylist, owning several beauty salons in New York and Albuquerque. She loved her family and her career. Irene and Rudy were professional ballroom dancers in NY, winning their highest Competition at Madison Square Garden in 1963.

They moved to Las Vegas, Nevada for several years. She was an employee at McCarran Airport as a TSA Security Officer and then worked at Hudson Gift Shop. They returned to Alb. in 2008 to live with Renee, Joe and Anthony. Throughout her married life, she traveled all over our country, several other countries and enjoyed life - "work hard, play hard". Irene will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved her as she loved them.

Irene's belief and faith was "Thank you God for your many gifts, life, abundance, understanding, faith and so many more. You and I are one".

The family will receive friends and family members at the family home on Saturday, January 2, 2015 from 1:00-3:00pm. Refreshments will be served.

The Family would like to thank Heritage Hospice for the comfort care assistance with Irene.
