Rosina Montoya

September 22, 1926 ~ January 8, 2022 (age 95)


Rosina Montoya, our most beautiful and loving Mother, died peacefully at her home on January 8, 2022 surrounded by her family. Rosina Montoya was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Pete Montoya, her parents Alfredo and Pauline Romero, and her father and mother in-law David & Delfinia Montoya. She was also preceded in death by her sisters Grace Vigil (Joe), and Mary Lou Ortiz, brothers Jack Romero (Bertha), Tom Romero, Harold Romero, Cesar Romero and brother in- law Frank Yardman, Jr. Also preceding her in death are many members of the Montoya, Rivera and Romero families.

Rosina is survived by her daughter Martha Armijo (Michael), son, Paul Montoya (Cindy), daughter Liz Spigelmyer and William Neal. She is also survived by her beloved grandson Steve Spigelmyer (Kelly), and great granddaughters, Adaira and Emery. She also is survived by Pete Rael (Vicki Gurule) and family.

Rosina leaves behind her sisters, Antonia Ludi, Josephine Webb, and Barbara Yardman, her brother Edmund Romero (Irene), and sisters in law Florine Torres and Estelle Romero. Surviving her are many nieces and nephews that she loved unconditionally.

Rosina was a native Santa Fean who worked at Kahn's, Leed's, Sears, Wind River Trading Co. and other stores on the Santa Fe Plaza.  She retired from the NM State Highway Department.

Rosina was a wonderful wife and mother. She gave with all her heart to her family and friends. She was the greatest cook, enjoyed gardening, and loved to go to sporting events as she was an avid St. Michael's Horsemen fan.  We would like to thank Del Corazon Hospice, especially Alyssa, Betty Lou, Myra, Mary, and Judy for the care they gave our Mother. Also, thank you to Silvia Miramontes and her family and our former neighbor, Joe Roybal for their support during this time.

Visitation will take place at Berardinelli Funeral Home on Sunday January 16, 2022 at 5 pm followed by the recitation of the Holy Rosary at 6 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Monday January 17, 2022 at St. Anne’s Church at 10 am with a reception to follow at the Eagles Club on Early Street at 12pm. Interment is scheduled for 9 am Thursday January 27, 2022 at the Santa Fe National Cemetery.
