Macedonia O. Lesperance Obituary
Lesperance, Macedonia O. (Maisie)

Age 88, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 5, 2016 in Socorro, NM following a brief illness. She was born in Magdalena, NM on September 26, 1927, to Alisandro and Romanita (Padilla) Otero. She was the eldest of 9 children. She married the love of her life, Albino, on August 20, 1949, just three months after having met him. They had 19 years and 8 children together. Albino passed away on September 24, 1968, leaving Maisie to be both mother and father to her 8 children. She never remarried. When asked if she would ever remarry, she would say, " I only loved one man in my life, and nobody will ever take his place". Maisie was employed for many years as a housekeeper at the old Socorro General Hospital on Neel Street. When the new hospital opened at it's present location, Maisie continued to work there until her retirement in 1992.
