Senaida Consuelo Saavedra Obituary
Saavedra, Senaida (Sadie) Consuelo



Senaida (Sadie) Consuelo Saavedra, 87, beloved wife, mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in her home on February 25, 2016.

Sadie was born in Chama, New Mexico to Fidelia and Jose Marquez. On January 7th, Sadie celebrated 69 years of marriage to Ambroiso Saavedra. She was blessed with a family of six children, 16 grandchildren and 27 great-grandchildren. Her children are Theresa Bachicha (spouse Tomas), Michael Saavedra (spouse Susie), Ambrosio Saavedra III (spouse Diane), Anna Mannara (spouse William Sr.), Angela Dutcher (spouse Herb) and Kathy Saavedra.

Sadie often shared stories of wonderful snow days while growing up in Chama. As a young girl she moved with her family to downtown Albuquerque where she attended school. While waitressing at Tito's Cafe, she met, Ambrosio, who was on furlough from the Navy, and soon after he was discharged, they married. They built their home in the South Valley where they raised their children. In their later years Ambrosio and Sadie spent time operating the Midway Lounge in Budville, New Mexico. They finally retired and spent their later years back home in Albuquerque.

Sadie was a devoted Catholic. She attended Sacred Heart Church as a young girl, St. Anne Church and St. Edwin's Church when she moved to the South Valley. Sadie enjoyed shopping, music, eating enchiladas and tacos. But most of all you saw the sparkle in her eyes and beautiful smile on her face when she was around family.

Sadie is survived by her husband, Ambrosio; sister, Lenora Dowdy; her brothers-in-law Flaviano Saavedra and Manuel Lopez and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Fidelia; her sisters Mary, Lupe and her brother Eddie.

Her family was blessed by her presence and she will live on through us as we share the values she instilled in us. She taught us how to share love, how to take care of each other, how to work in honor and be accepting and forgiving.

A rosary will be held at Garcia's Mortuary at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 2nd. A mass will be held at St. Edwin's Roman Catholic Church at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 3rd, followed by interment at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
