Lucaria Carrasco Obituary
Carrasco, Lucaria



On December 19, 2015 our Lord and our precious daddy came and took our mother Lucaria (Lucy) Chavez Carrasco to be with him, after three years of being separated by his death in 2012. Lucy was born in Polverda, NM to Felomeno and Felicita Chavez on February 13, 1925. She moved to Albuquerque, NM where she met Fernando Rivera Carrasco, who was stationed at Kirtland Air Base. After a beautiful courtship of only three months, they were married at San Felipe De Neri Catholic Church on February 13, 1943.

When daddy came home after the war, their lives began in Old Town on 15th street where they raised their family of three daughters. Our mother was a beautiful stylish and talented homemaker, a great cook and a great seamstress, sewing beautiful clothes for herself and her daughters, also crocheting beautiful doilies and Afghans. Lucy still had time to be a Eucharistic Minister and distributed communion to the sick. Lucy and Fernando were Mayordomos and volunteered for San Felipe De Neri church. They traveled to Europe, Mexico, Hawaii, and throughout the United States. Las Vegas, NV was her favorite place to visit.

Our mother was preceded in death by her husband of sixty-nine years, Fernando; four siblings; and most recently by her great-grandson, Jacob Lucero. She is survived by two brothers, Ray and Frank Chavez; two sisters, Gertrude Sedillo and Frances Mora; daughters, Annabelle Lucero and husband, Ray, Linda Carrasco-Smith and husband, E.J., and Catherine Carrasco; seven grandchildren, Lawrence, Steve, and Chris Lucero, Jennifer Woodall, Julianne Sunseri, Toni Smith and Alexandra Gutierrez; 11 great-grandchildren and one on the way; and one great great-grandson, Jude Luciani.

Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Saturday, December 26, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. with viewing starting at 9:00 a.m. at San Felipe De Neri Catholic Church, 2005 N. Plaza St NW. Interment will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Lawrence, Steve, Chris, Estevan, Andres and Alejandro Lucero.

We love you. We will miss you.
