Mary Noriega Spence, 65, of Fort Worth, formerly of Las Cruces, New Mexico, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, December 1, 2018. She suffered a stroke 4 days prior to her passing and left this world surrounded by her family. Mary was born on April 29, 1953 in Juan Aldama Zacatecas, Mexico. She was the daughter of Marcelino Noriega and Maria Teresa Noriega. She attended Alamogordo High School and went on to be employed as HR Benefits Coordinator and Assistant Director of Safety Training by Chevron Oil in El Paso, Texas. The former Maria Jessica Espinosa Noriega married Jack Spence on June 24th, 1972. A lifelong, and accomplished artist, Mary loved painting with pastels. In her later years Mary resided in Texas and enjoyed spending time with her family, reading, playing cards, listening to music, watching her favorite movies, and making silly videos with her granddaughters.

Mary is survived by her children Jennifer and Christian Juen, Jack and Andrea Spence VII, her granddaughters Kylie and Keira Juen, her siblings Mary Alvear, Conrad and Kumiko Noriega, Christine Durso, former-spouse Jack Spence VI, and many honorary children and grandchildren. Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Marcelino and Maria Teresa.
