Yolanda Mercedes Ortiz Obituary

Yolanda Mercedes Ortiz went to be with the Lord and all of his angels on April 7, 2016.

She was born on July 16, 1951, to Joe and Nena Ortiz. She was raised in Carrizozo, N.M., and later moved to Alamogordo. She was a preschool teacher at Chins Full House and loved the children with whom she worked.

She is survived by her daughter, Traci Beltran, whom she loved and adored, more than words can express; son-in-law, Larry Beltran; grandsons, Nathan and Michael, who were the lights of her life; sisters, Tamara Ortiz and Judi Voss; brothers, Conrad Ortiz and Mario Ortiz; her dear friend, who was like another sister, Lisa; many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

She was greeted in heaven by her father, Joe L. Ortiz, mother Magdalena "Nena" Ortiz, and brother Johnny Ortiz.

Yolanda will be remembered for her beautiful smile and her sense of humor. She was a woman with a heart of gold and shined with love for her family, friends, and the children she worked with. She was a mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend who filled many people with love and laughter. She will forever be missed, loved and although hearts are broken without her, she will live on forever in our memories and hearts.

The Ortiz family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Alamogordo unreal Home to direct the arrangements.
Service arrangements are pending.
