Figueroa, Maria Edwina
Maria Edwina Zamora Sanchez de Figueroa, age 86 of San Antonito, NM was called to our Lord on April 4, 2018. She was born on March 10, 1932 to Claudio Sanchez and Carlota Zamora of San Antonio, NM. She is preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Pablo Figueroa of Guayama, Puerto Rico, her son Felipe Rafael (18 months) her granddaughter Angel Lynn Sanchez, two great-great-granddaughters Alia Chloe Figueroa and Aaliyah Renee Martzen-Chavez. Mom lost many brothers and sisters and relatives over the years; too many to mention.
She is survived by her children, Anthony Paul (Leah) Figueroa, Yvonne (Roary) Williams, Mary and Luana Figueroa, Roberta (Ted) Chavez and Martin Figueroa.
She has 17 grandchildren, 31 great-great grandchildren and 4 great-great-great grandchildren. Three siblings Mary Francis Garcia, Dorothy (Ray) Martinez and Armando (Debbie) Sanchez and many nephews, nieces and cousins (in the hundreds).
Edwina worked at Bella Vista Restaurant for over 17 years, she ran the kitchen and was very good at it. She loved to read, fish and dance, she and my dad were always the LIFE of the party. She was a loving and giving person that opened her home to everyone (even a mother with six children). No one would have been turned away.
She will be truly missed by all who had the pleasure of loving her.
Pallbearers will be her grandsons, John David & Jonathan Mark Figueroa, Francisco "Frankie" Gutierrez, Manuel Chavez, Eddie Pickens and Jason Figueroa.
Honorary pallbearers will be Julian and Joshua Figueroa, Daniel Chavez and James Thomas.
Come help us celebrate her life at San Antonio de Padua Mission Church in San Antonio, NM on Friday, April 13, 2018 at 7:00 pm & at her Funeral Mass there on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at 12:00 pm.
We would especially like to thank Mary Francis Garcia (sister) and Jerry Gonzales (nephew).
All our love to Stephanie, Anjelica, Mary and the rest of my family who was there for Mom.
