Feb. 16, 1916 - July 25, 2011

Marguerite Jaquez, 95, of Aztec, passed away peacefully on Monday, July 25, 2011. She was born Feb. 16, 1916, in Blanco, to Alex and Petrita Jaquez.
Marguerite graduated from Aztec High School and married ""Chano"" Jaquez in 1939. She was a homemaker, always involved in her church, community, and the activities and occasions of her large extended family. She loved her church family at St. Joseph's Catholic Church and was always in the middle of all the ""goings on."" She was a member of the Legion of Mary.
She enjoyed crafting, gardening, and was an avid reader. The Jaquez's were one of the pioneer families in San Juan County, and Marguerite and Chano were always involved in the politics of the county. She was a sassy little lady with a quick wit. She had many dear friends and relatives who will miss her and remember her for her caring ways and generosity.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Luciano ""Chano"" Jaquez; and her brothers, John and Arthur Jaquez.
She had no children but had many nieces, nephews and others she ""adopted."" She was known as ""Auntie"" to most of her nieces and nephews and was very dear to the children of her brother, John and Josie Jaquez-Norman, Johnny, and David Jaquez, Sylvia Paul, Nila Campbell, Anna Whatley and Ginny Jaquez. Chano's sister Rose's children were also dear to ""Tia,"" - B.A., Donald, Eldon and Gerald Rodrigues, Ina Martinez, Jeanne Sategna and Maurine Romney. Nora Jaquez is also one of her cherished nieces. Her many ""primos"" were so good to her, especially Buster and Gilbert Jaquez.
Among her dearest friends are Jean Everitt and Nellie Merling. She was their ""little sister.""
Marguerite was living with her niece, Sylvia Paul, and her husband, Will Ed, of Farmington. She lived at the Cottonwood Apartments (Good Samaritan Complex) until she needed more care. Sylvia and Will Ed had the help of caring, compassionate nurses and therapists from Guardian Angels, and a special helper from PALS.
Funeral services will be at 10 a.m. today, July 30, at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Aztec.
Pallbearers are Norman Jaquez, John Jaquez, David Jaquez, Patrick Martinez and Julian Martinez.
