Delfinia María Chávez, 93, of Cerro passed away on February 14, 2010 in Santa Fe, NM. Our beloved mother was preceded in death by her husband, our beloved dad, Juan de Los Reyes Chávez.

Delfina and Juan were married for 74 years until he passed away on July 30, 2005. She is preceded in death by her parents, Antonio Archuleta and Eliza Segura, also by several brothers and sisters and grandson, Melvin Chávez of Belén and son in law of Santa Fe.

She was a cook for the schools for 14 years in Questa and Cerro. She enjoyed gardening, especially her flowers, cooking, sewing, doing crafts and taking care of her grandchildren and other relatives. She and her husband enjoyed participating in "Los Días" for New Years Day. She was a member of the Sacred Heart League, 4H Club and the Community Craft Center.

Delfina will always be remembered for her tremendous love and admiration for her family and friends and also her strong faith in the Catholic Church, she loved and was very proud of her 5 generations and also getting the family together for blessings and enjoying family time and prayer. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. Rosary will be recited on Thursday, February 18, 2010 at 6 PM at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Cerro. Funeral mass will be held on Friday, February 19, 2010 at 10 AM at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church with burial to follow at the Cerro Cemetery (which is located across from the Guadalupe Church).

Though we know Heaven has welcomed our Beloved Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and Great Great Grandmother, our hearts still feel the pain and sorrow, the Chávez family. Arrangements by Rivera Family Mortuaries & Crematory.
