Olona, Margaret Mary

Margaret Mary Olona passed away peacefully at home on July 26, 2017. She was born in Springer, NM on January 15, 1944.

She is preceded in death by her parents Con and Beatrice Olona, sister Louise and brothers Con Jr. and Dido. Margaret is survived by five brothers Reyes (Julie), Albert (Gloria), Phillip (Sally), Eddie (Celia) and Harold (Vonette); many nieces, nephews whom she loved; Margaret is survived by her soul-mate and best friend Catherine M. Chavez. Margaret is an Associate with the Sister's of Charity and remained active with the Sister's as long as she could. She was a tireless helper and a Eucharistic Minister at Our Lady of Fatima. She received a bachelor's degree from the University of New Mexico in 2008. Her profession was spreading Gods word and helping anyone that needed a kind word, a hug or a cigarette! I would like to thank the Olona, Baca, Chavez and Gilbert families, Gina and Chach, Matt and Cassie and friends for all the prayers and support you gave us both. A special thank you to Tomi Segotta (Hospice Compassus) for her extraordinary care. Tomi's knowledge, kindness, and compassion is appreciated and remembered.
