Crucie Maria Gutierrez Obituary

Crucie Maria Gutierrez went home to her Lord and Savior on May 21, 2016, at the age of 103. In Tularosa, N.M. on May 17, 1913, she was born the third of seven children to Jose Deloris and Sipriana Baldonado Gutierrez.

Crucie was a wonderful waitress until the age of 82. Her customers at the Ship Ahoy, Lester's Cafe, Lariat and C&C all loved her. Her favorite late night customer at the Lariat was her nephew, Alamogordo Police Officer LT Jimmy Vigil until his death in August 1973. She loved all of her nieces, nephews, great & great-great nieces and nephews as if they were her own children. She loved babysitting, singing and playing games with them. Her favorite songs were "How much is that doggie in the window", "Que Sera Sera" and "Pretty Baby". She loved telling jokes, her favorite was "Prince Albert in the Can". They all loved going places with Aunt Crucie because she drove fast. She loved getting her hair and nails done until the very end.

Crucie was preceded in death by her parents; her only brother that she adored, Max Gutierrez, Sr.; her six loving sisters, Carmen Malczewski, Pat Brusuelas, Barbara Vigil, Sipriana Gutierrez, Jackie St. John and Mary Lopez; her niece, Nena Dorame; her nephews, Jimmy Vigil, Richard Lopez and Robert Gutierrez.

She is survived by her nephew that she loved like her own son, Max Gutierrez Jr.; her very special great nephew and niece, Tim and Belle Moore; numerous nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews that she loved very much.

The Rosary for Crucie will be recited at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, May 28, 2016, at St. Francis De Paula Catholic Church by Steve and Liz Chavez. Mass of Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 28, 2016. at St. Francis De Paula Catholic Church with Father Theophine Okator, Celebrant.
