Pearl Cardenas Obituary
Cardenas, Pearl

Pearl Cardenas was born December 7, 1942 and passed away July 30, 2016. Pearl was a lover of life, people, and family. She had one of the most beautiful smiles, which she shared and gave to anyone and everyone. She enjoyed numerous activities including gardening, zumba, dancing and art & crafts; just to name a few. She was very active with her church volunteering and giving her time to help others. She was born in Oxnard, CA, where she graduated from Oxnard HS in 1961. She moved to Albuquerque in the early 1970's and has been her home since. Besides her own children who she loved very much she also loved the many children she had the pleasure of working with during her years working at Highland High School, Jefferson middle school and Van Buren middle school from which she retired in 2006.

She was close to her baby sister Mary Barron, brothers Victor Jaramillo, Manuel Jaramillo, Tony Jaramillo and Freddy Jaramillo and many nephews and nieces and many wonderful friends. She is loved deeply, missed greatly but never forgotten.
