Virginia Torres Obituary
Torres, Virginia Hidalgo

Virginia Hidalgo Torres, 82, passed away after a sudden illness on Sat Dec 3 2016. She was a lifelong resident of NM, born in Hillsboro on June 25, 1934. Virginia lived in Hillsboro and Hot Springs (T or C) during her childhood and adolescence, and married her true love Conrado Telles Torres on Dec 1, 1951. Over the years, Conrad and Virginia raised their family in several wonderful communities, including Las Cruces, Bernalillo, and Corrales.

Virginia is preceded in death by her husband Conrado, and her eldest sons Carlos (Bonnie) and Conrado Jr. (Christine). She was one of eight children; survived by Michaela Chavez (the late Manuel), and Luisa Acosta (the late Luis), and preceded in death by her parents Sam and Concepcion Hidalgo, and her siblings Arturo Hidalgo, Vicente Hidalgo, Max Hidalgo, Helen Villa, and Estela Chavez.

She is survived by five children; Arthur Torres (Rebecca), Ned Torres (Ruthanne), Sylvia Hoffman (the late Howard), Patricia Miller (Manuel), and Sean Torres (Nuria). Virginia was a proud grandmother of eleven; Jessica Bollman (Randy), Tara Koynoff (Alex), Carlos Torres Jr., Tonya Torres, Sadie McCracken (Jamie), the late Armando Torres, Samuel Torres (Liz), Benjamin Torres, Dustin Torres (Gretchen), Adam Torres (Caitlin), Marcos Torres (and baby brother or sister on the way!). Virginia also had many great-grandchildren, two great-great-grandchildren, numerous loving nieces and nephews, and many other special relatives and loved ones.

Virginia was a source of strength and inspiration to family and friends; she was quick with a smile, words of encouragement and wisdom, and offered many comforting hugs to countless loved ones. She especially adored babies and children, and had a knack for making people young or old feel as if they had a second mother. Her faith and kindness were very special to many.

A memorial service to honor Virginia's life will be held at a later date, with details to follow.
