She also loved being a tour guide and the director of tours for The New Mexico State Capitol during the House of Representatives legislative sessions from 1993 to 2004. She has left behind wonderful memories of a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She loved art, music, dancing, fishing, gambling and playing board games. We are grateful for each day we were able to enjoy her witty banter, exhuberant personality and glowing smile. We will miss her more than words can ever express.
