Juanita Maes Delgado, the foundation of a large and loving family, died peacefully at her home on August 21, 2015.
Born June 16, 1924 to Hilario and Marie Lueras Maes, Juanita grew up in Lincoln, New Mexico.

During World War II, she traveled to California where her work in the shipyards aided her nation's war efforts. After the war, she returned to New Mexico and lived in Carrizozo before moving to Alamogordo in 1947.

Juanita is survived by six children, Helen Viscarra-Reno (Bob), Felipa Kinsey, Mary Ann Deitz (Joe), Mary Lou Sandoval, Santiago Delgado (Mary), Hilario Delgado (Mary Ellen); brother, Lucio Maes; 20 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, six great-great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jose D. Delgado; son, Jose D. Delgado, Jr.; grandson, Hilario Delgado II; sons-in-law, Andy Viscarra, Salvador Sandoval; brother, Hilario Maes, Jr.; and sister, Anastacia Maes.

A loving mother and grandmother, Juanita was the center of her home and lived in the center of more hearts than can be counted. A member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, Juanita has now returned to the heart of her Lord and Savior.

The Rosary for Juanita will be recited at 9 a.m., Friday August 28, 2015, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. Following the Rosary, Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10 a.m.
