Lugarda Jaramillo Deck

Roy, UT - Lugarda Jaramillo Deck, 83, of Roy, UT and formerly of Alamogordo, NM passed away June 12, 2020 from incidents due to dementia.

Garda was born April 11, 1937 in La Palma, NM, the 4th child of Toribio and Margarita Salazar Jaramillo. She grew up mainly and went to school in Vaughn, NM.

Back in 1963 the Air Force had a train in Vaughn. Garda met a handsome, young Sergeant and 3 days later they eloped in Juarez, Mexico; 2 months later on December 7, 1963 they were again married at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Vaughn. They went on to have 2 daughters, Yvette and Vanessa.

Don, being in the AF, took them to Wyoming, California, New York, Alaska and New Mexico. While Don did tours in Thailand and Korea, Garda held the home front down. They retired in Alamogordo where everyone knew their meticulous yard and elaborate Christmas lights. While many people might still not know, Garda was preceded in death by Don, who died August 4, 2018 and she then went to live with Yvette in UT.

Garda was also preceded in death by her parents; siblings: Eddy and Irene; brothers-in-laws: Bobby and Sid Deck; sister-in-law: Janet Deck; nephews: Manny Aguilar, Dickie Johnson and Dan Naugle; niece: Patricia Monismith. She is survived by daughters Yvette Torres (Tony) Roy, UT and Vanessa Allen (George) Albuquerque, NM; sisters: Teresa Aguilar (Mannie) and Lee Martinez (Marty); sisters-in-law: Carol Jaramillo, Myrtie Kriner, Linda Johnson (Dick), Jackie and Monique Deck; brother-in-law: George Deck; numerous nieces and nephews; 7 grandchildren: Varice, Kurt (Erin), Cord Torres of UT, Anissa Torres of Hawaii, Alec Sanchez, Tyra and Varice Carle of NM, 6 great-grandchildren: Aiden, Oliver, Isabel and Charlotte Percifield, Eva and Atticus Torres of UT. Oliver, Isabel and Charlotte were constant visitors and Garda"s eyes ALWAYS shined when she saw 2 year old Charlotte, she could never get over her!!

Condolences to the daughters, families and friends of Garda and Deck, will miss seeing this devoted couple in Church and around town. Was totally shock to hear both passed. Always enjoyed talking and laughing with Garda and Deck always by her side. Will miss their highly decorated Christmas lights at their house. Most sincere and heartfelt condolences.

We were saddened to learn of both Garda's passing, as well as Don's. We met this lovely couple when we were still living in Alamogordo, NM and attending Immaculate Conception Church. Garda would always be kneeling at the front praying her Rosary. At Christmastime, everybody knew the Deck house! The care and effort that was put into decorating the outside was incredible. We shall miss our dear friends, but in faith, we know that we shall see them again. Eternal rest grant unto both Don and Garda, O Lord!

Yvette and family, I am sorry for the loss of your mom, grandma and great-grandma. I will cherish the times I visited you in Holloman and go to White Sands. Another time that we were going to Vaughn at night, you fell asleep so I climbed into the front seat between my Aunt and Uncle . I had a good time talking with them. My most cherished time. You gave your mom the best two years of her life. You were the best daughter, God will bless you. RIP Aunt Garda.
