Bertha Grace Barela Obituary

Bertha G. Barela, 87, of Alamogordo, N.M., passed away on January 4, 2016 in Alamogordo, New Mexico. She was born on October 13, 1928 in Capitan, N.M., to Mrs. Lucia Salsberry and James Salsberry.

She was a beloved mother, sister and especially amazing grandmother. She had the most beautiful heart, anyone who knew her, knew she was a kind, loving, most caring woman in the world. Some people say we were a blessing to her, but the truth is she was a blessing to our family. She was a strong God fearing woman, she prayed every day and she always kept God first in her life and home. Her faith in Him was amazing, she prayed and talked to God through her whole time of pain and suffering up until her last breath.

She left us with something and that is no matter what the situation may be, God will never leave you.
God needed His angel back, that he gave us for just a little while and she will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

Bertha is survived by her daughters, Tonia Barela (Sanchez) of Alamogordo, Kathy Sammins of Florida, Mary Barela of El Paso, Texas, Jackie Barela of Alamogordo, Joeann and Tim of Connecticut; her sons, David Joe and Irene Barela of Roswell, N.M. and James (Rocky) Barela of Alamogordo; numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Lucia Salsberry and her father, James Salsberry; husband, Joe Barela; her two sons, Johnny Barela and Jimmy Barela; her daughter, Aurora Barela; and her beloved grandson, Vincent (Jerome) Scott.

Our Mother, Our Beloved Angel will be forever missed and loved.
