Mansfield, Luana B.

Luana B. Mansfield ended a courageous battle with cancer on July 28th, 2017. She passed away peacefully in her home with loving family members and friends by her side, just 3 days shy of her 63rd birthday.

Luana is survived by her lifelong companion, Craig Mansfield; daughters Lindsay Sears and husband, Orrin Sears; Lauren Mansfield & husband, Luke Fraser; brother Salvatore Baragiola and wife, Lynn & their children, Sal and Erin; sister Michelle Earle of Sandwich, MA and many loving in-laws, nieces, nephews & cousins. She is preceded in death by mother, Denise Sharpe; father, Ed Sharpe; brother Rick Sharpe & sister, Kathy Adamsey.

Luana had a vivid career as a realtor. She was well-known and loved in the Albuquerque market since the late seventies; her passions included residential, new home sales, property management, and was very talented in interior design. She also opened a consignment boutique, Deja Vu de Los Ranchos; it was her pride and joy. She made many memories and lasting friendships with her clients and customers. Luana was known for her iconic fashion and style, her class, and her love for all things animal print! Above all, Luana's most cherished rewards in life were her two girls, Lauren and Lindsay. The three share an inseparable bond that was experienced by many. Her girls remember her as a strong, courageous warrior who inspired them, loved unconditionally, and exhibited grace and kindness in everything she did.

Memorial services will be held on Friday, September 15th at 1:00 PM at Koinonia Church, 10405 Comanche NE. In honor of celebrating Luana, please wear your highest of heels, bright jewelry, and your classiest animal print for the service. In lieu of flowers or for donations, Luana named NMDog. org and Animal Humane Society of NM.
