Nora M. Fierro

Las Cruces - Nora Mestas Fierro, 86, of Ft. Filmore, N.M. departed this earth with peace in her heart and surrounded by loving family members on August 29, 2019 in Las Cruces, N.M.

Nora was born on the 21st of October, 1932 to Miguel B. Mestas and Matilde Barcena Gomez. She graduated from Las Cruces High School in 1951 and then attended the school of cosmetology in El Paso, Texas. She began working at The Star Beauty Shop and finished her career at The Chez Paris.

On January 8, 1955, Nora married her true love and best friend, Cipriano Fierro. They built a beautiful home and life together. In addition to her career, she was a devoted mother to her children and loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren deeply. As a homemaker, Nora also found time to golf, join a bowling league, and teach catechism for the Catholic Church. She also loved music, gardening, and traveling.

She is proceeded in death by her parents; brother, Oscar G. Mestas; brother, Ismael G. Mestas; and sister, Olga G. Mestas Barrio.

Nora is survived by her husband, Cipi; son, Michael G. Fierro (Alicia Prescott); and three daughters, Sonya F. Fierro, Melissa A. Jackson, and Vivian M. Randazzo (Tony). Her sisters Eloisa

Nora was always a source of inspiration and a leader in Christ. She was a friend to all and would lend an ear to anyone in need. Her genuine smile, pure heart, and endless sense of humor a?ected every life she touched. She has left behind a rich harvest of memories to cherish, honor, and emulate.

The family would like to thank Dr. John Glick and Dr. Robert Navarette for their many years of dedication and compassionate care. And a special thank you to her daughter, Sonya for devoting countless hours of loving care during her final years.
