INEZ LUCIA SANCHEZ-THOMAS
Inez Lucia Sanchez-Thomas passed away on November 19, 2020. Born to Phillip and Nell Sanchez, she is a descendant of Felipe B. Delgado and Lucia Ortiz, the daughter of Captain Don Gaspar-Ortiz.
Inez was employed by St. Vincent Hospital as an EEG technologist for 42 years. A caring, elegant, positive, and humorous person, her light shone brightly on anyone in her presence. She loved to travel, attend operas and camp, and her love of animals led her to volunteer for Felines and Friends for many years.
She is dearly missed by her husband Cliff and their two daughters, Amalia and Raquela, as well as her parents and living siblings, Phillip, Pablo, Nella, Joaquin, and Javier. Inez was preceded in death by her siblings, Tomas and Sofia.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Cancer Foundation for NM and or Felines and Friends. A gathering to celebrate Inez's life will be held at a future time when gatherings are safe.
