Delilah Meyer Obituary
Delilah Meyer passed away on March 28, 2018. Her family would like you to know that she went peacefully to meet her family members who preceded her in death.
She was born on September 16, 1929, in Alamogordo, NM. It is not an accident of fate that she was born on the anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution-she was fiercely independent.
Her family would like you to know a bit about her because she was a remarkable individual.
Her family would also like you to know that we mourn her passing acutely.
As a young woman, she was burned over the majority of her body and was told she would be unable to live a normal life. However, she proved them wrong and didn't just live a normal life-she lived an extraordinary life. Her spirit and lust for life were so strong that they were passed on to all with whom she interacted. She was such a force of nature that we all imagined she would be with us for eternity.
She was the mother of six children, whom she loved dearly, but was not necessarily defined by that fact. She was a registered nurse (RN), owned a car dealership, ran a translation service, had a restaurant, and numerous other vocations. She traveled extensively throughout the US, Mexico, and Europe. She even fulfilled a life-long dream of making a pilgrimage to the healing fountains of Lourdes, France.
Her family would like you to know that we are all aware that she was unconventional and sometimes controversial. However, we didn't love her despite that-we loved her because of it. She taught us all resilience and determination, a strong work ethic, independence in the face of pressure, and many other positive qualities.
She rarely smiled without a wink that conveyed her indomitable wit and humor. Her intelligence and charm were apparent in every interaction. People were pulled into her presence like planets are drawn to the sun. Much like the death of a bright star, we will be lost without the warmth of her light.
Delilah is preceded in death by her mother and father, Maria and Gavino Noriega, Sr.; her husband Winfred Meyer; as well as her siblings Ismael Ortega, Dan Ortega, Juan Ortega, Lupe Delgado, Santos Diaz, Jimmy Noriega, and Antonio Noriega. She is survived by her siblings Nino Noriega, Gavino Noriega, Jr., Ermalinda Moyers, and Jovita Noriega. She is also survived by all six of her children-Jose Francisco Romero, Gloria Romero Webb, Solomon David Romero, Delilah Romero, Cecilia "Tina" Duran, and Guadalupe Romero. She was also the proud grandmother of 14 as well as a great-grandmother and great-great grandmother. The family would like to thank Lorraine Colmenero and the charge nurse, Mariah, for their kindness during her last days.

The Meyer family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo Funeral Home. Services are pending.
