Trudi N. Miranda



Trudi N. Miranda, our beloved Mom, passed away peacefully on November 5, 2017 at the age of 93 at her home in Albuquerque.

Trudi was a lifelong, native New Mexican born on December 16, 1923 in Chimayo, NM. Trudi attended John Hyson School in Chimayo, Allison-James School in Santa Fe and Menaul School in Albuquerque.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lupita and Juan Naranjo & sisters, Rosenda McCabe, Eralia Kennealley, Florinda Naranjo & brothers, Frutoso and Gene Naranjo.

Trudi is survived by her sons, Carl Miranda and Rod Miranda, both of Albuquerque and by her daughter, Leola Curtis and Dave Kist of Ft. Worth, TX and daughter, Lori Miranda and husband, Jim Pastoor of Denver, CO.

Trudi is also survived by grandson, Bryan Curtis and wife, Christine and their children, Owen and Stella and granddaughter, Miranda Cook and husband, Ben and children, James and Joseph.

She is also survived by her former husband and father of her children, Gilbert Miranda; her two brothers, LeRoy Naranjo and Mois Naranjo and wife, Anna, as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Trudi, aka, Frutosa, Frutie, F. Trudi, FT and a couple of other variations (she had her name legally changed) was totally dedicated to her children and would do anything for them. She wanted us to call her Mom, so we did. Mom was a wonderful cook and always working, whether on her job, on her home or doing something for someone else. Mom always put the needs of others before her own. Mom drove until age 90 and when the dents increased she willingly gave that up.

After raising her children to school age Mom began working at Montgomery Ward in the Accounting Dept. for many years before entering the childcare field where she worked at Blue Bird Day Care and then at New Futures School until reluctantly retiring at age 83. She began attending Palo Duro Senior Center which she enjoyed until recently. The ceramic turtles, chickens, frogs and other items she made have been given to family and friends in Albuquerque and New Mexico, California, Colorado, Texas, South Dakota and Louisiana.

Our beloved Mom was a member of 2nd Presbyterian Church in Albuquerque where she had many friends.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the "Angels" who took care of Mom for the last few years: Stephanie, Brenda, Victoria, JaNeisha, Dalia, Henrietta, Dana, Socorro, Sandra, Holly, Sydney, Lena and to Heritage Hospice. God Bless you all!!

Funeral Services will be held at Second United Presbyterian Church at 812 Edith NE on November 17, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. Reception at church to follow. Burial will take place in Chimayo, NM.
