Alberta T. Salazar

Biography


Alberta T. Salazar – 88; A resident of the Española Valley passed away late Monday night, in her home, with her loving family at her bedside. She was born in Montrose, Colorado on May 19, 1925, during the time her parents, Avelino and Guadalupita Talachy, had relocated there to find work. In her lifetime, our mother, wore many hats. During World War II she contributed to the war effort and relocated to Oakland, CA where she served our country as a legendary Rosie the Riveter in the capacity of a welder. She always managed to be a stay at home mom, all while working along side her husband, managing the El Rio Theater and later the family business of Block-Salazar Mortuary. And we cannot forget our fondest memories of her time as a school bus-driver. There are many who will attest to the fact that she always had a pan on the stove, a tortilla in the bread-box and ready to feed anyone who came into her home. She was truly the woman behind the man. Our dad, Ramon, was a successful businessman who always had his wife’s encouragement and support throughout his life.
Our mother’s desire was to die in the home her husband built for them. Many contributed to fulfilling our mother’s desire. Three granddaughters and their respective families honored our mother as her caregivers; Stephanie Salazar, Daina Pacheco and Briana Salazar. Eileen Quintana and Pauline Maez also lovingly cared for our mother. For the past ten weeks, Ambercare, made our mother’s time with us as peaceful and comfortable as possible.
Alberta was preceded in death by her parents; brothers and sisters, Gertrude Borrego, Eulalia Borrego, Faustine Talachy and Cornelio Talachy; father and mother-in-law, Jose Ramon and Francisquita de Sales Salazar; granddaughter, Amy Salazar and of course our beloved father, Ramon E. Salazar on November 13, 1996.
She is survived by a grandson whom she helped raise, who was the apple of her eye and her pride and joy, John Ramon Vigil; her children, Carmela Salazar of Española, Richard Salazar and wife Carol of La Puebla, Adolfo Salazar of Española, Teresa and husband Leroy Martinez of La Puebla, Clyde Salazar and wife Lucy of Albuquerque, Roy Salazar and wife Lauralee, and Gilbert Salazar and wife Lora of Española; nine grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren; brothers and sisters-in-law; Eloisa Block, Sarah Maestas and Manuel Martinez, Consuelo Thompson, Bennie Salazar, David and Sylvia Salazar, Mary Agnes and Andres Gallegos and Arthur Salazar; many nieces and nephews and other relatives and friends.
On Friday, January 3, 2014 a visitation was held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at Rivera Family Funeral Home. Visitation continued at 6:00 p.m. with a rosary scheduled for 7:00 p.m. at the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Española. Funeral services were held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 4, 2014 also at Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Espanola. She was laid to rest along side her husband at the Santa Fe National Cemetery at 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday, January 7, 2014.
Serving as pallbearers will be; John Ramon Vigil, Richie Salazar, Stephanie Salazar, Gene Salazar, James Salazar and Louie Jaramillo. Honorary pallbearers named are granddaughters, Camila Alberta Garcia, Daina Pacheco, Briana Salazar and Karla Fernandez; her Godchildren, Albert Gallegos, Harry Talachy, Marcella Jaramillo, Pamela Romero, Elizabeth Lewis and George Martinez.

Lamento mucho la pérdida de su ser amado. Estoy segura que está pasando por un tiempo muy difícil ya que la muerte de un ser querido deja un gran vacío en el corazón. Algo que me ayudó mucho a mi es el consuelo que da la palabra de Dios, La Biblia. Si tiene una Biblia, le invito a que busque los textos de Juan 5:28, 29, Revelación 21; 3,4 y Hechos 24: 15. Ahí vera que se nos da la bella esperanza de la resurrección. Esto nos deja saber que en un futuro, ¡vamos a poder ver a nuestros seres queridos nuevamente, incluyendo a su ser amado! ¿Se puede imaginar el gozo que tendremos? Quisiera compartir más con usted esta magnífica esperanza. Con dicho pensamiento en mente, le invito a visitar el siguiente enlace: http/www.JW.org/es/publicaciones/libros/tratado-muertos-volver-a-vivir/ Ahí encontrara un artículo que habla más al respecto.

My sincere condolences to you and your family. Revelation 21:4 make this promise, it says: " And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." What a beautiful promise, we all look forward, from our loving Creator, (Jehovah God, Psalm 83:18). May the God of peace be with you and your family. Sincerely Yours, Brandy Molina
