Perlingos, Lorilei Briseno



LORILEI BRISEÃ'O PERLINGOS, age 48, went home to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on June 20, 2017. Her loving and devoted family never left her side throughout the course of her passing.



Lorilei was born on June 15, 1969, in Roswell, New Mexico to Sal and Viola Briseno. She grew up in Roswell and graduated from Roswell High School in 1987.



Lorilei was a long-time employee of United Airlines. She was a flight attendant and traveled all around the world. She often shared stories about her interesting encounters and adventures in flying. During her last years with United, she traveled to her favorite destinations in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, and various destinations in Europe. She always expressed the need to "hurry and catch a flight." She is now soaring through Heaven and flying high with the angels.



Lorilei faced Multiple Sclerosis with the same gusto and vigor that she lived her life. She faced MS head-on and refused and did not allow it to take away her life. She maintained a positive and hopeful outlook with regards to finding a cure for the disease and participated in various MS events.



Lorilei never stopped having a passion and appreciation for life which was evident in how she lived and loved her family. Her greatest joy was that of being a mother and a grandmother. Her life was never the same when she was blessed with her son, Caleb. The love of a child and being a mother completed her. She loved Caleb immeasurably. Lorilei was also a doting and devoted grandmother to her three grandchildren. Cassius, Camden, and Cieden were the apples of their grandmother's eyes. Her son and grandsons provided her with the strength, courage, and motivation to continue her fight against MS.



Lorilei's beauty radiated through her smile and her magnificent spirit filled any room she entered. Her laughter was contagious. She was a very giving woman who has left a legacy of love for all that had the honor of sharing in her life. We give thanks for the life of this amazing woman and are honored to call her a devoted wife, a beloved mother and grandmother, daughter, and sister. The unique, complex, extraordinary and irreplaceable Lorilei, whose grace and beauty inspired us all, will never be extinguished from our hearts and minds.



Lorilei was preceded in death by her father Sal Briseno Sr.; sister, Katie Hamilton; grandparents, Matias and Benedicta Briseno, and grandmother, Dora Daley.



She is survived by her mother Viola Briseno; husband David Perlingos; son Caleb Perlingos (Siria); beautiful grandsons Cassius, Camden, Cieden; brother Mike Briseno; brother Sal Briseno Jr. (Laura); sister Melanie Florez (Jonathan); and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.



Services for Lorilei are pending. A Celebration of Life will be held at Church on the Move in Roswell, NM, within the next month. Details regarding Lorilei's services will be published at a later date.
