Petra G. Lujan



Petra G. Lujan was born October 13, 1913 in Los Valles de San Augustine, New Mexico. Our beloved mother, grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 23, 2017, in her home surrounded by her loving family. At 104 years old, Petra was the last survivor of eleven sisters.

Petra was preceded in death by her husband, Jose Damian Lujan who passed away December 16, 1982; her son, Manuel Lujan; her son-in-law, Tony Arguello; grandchildren, George Martinez and David Lujan; and by her great-grandchildren, Jessica Hernandez and Jamie Lujan.

A loving and memorable life included six generations of grandchildren, totaling 32 grandchildren; 68 great-grandchildren; 20 great-great-grandchildren; two great-great-great-grandchildren; as well as many other family members and friends who loved and will miss her greatly.
