We are sad to announce that Olivia M. Romero (Ortiz) a resident of Santa Fe, passed away February 4th, 2021 at her home with her family and cats by her side. She had been battling cancer. We are grateful to have been able to spend time with her, although it was not enough. We miss and love you.
Olivia is preceded in death by her Mama and Dad, Tomasita and Eusebio Ortiz; Brothers Mike, Ernest, Jimmy and Sister Jenny. In-laws Ignacio and Delia Romero; Bro. In-law Fermin Sanchez, Nick Trujillo and niece Yvonne Romero.
She is survived by her husband Henry of 60 years; Daughter Debbie; Son Henry C. and partner Adelmo Lopez, who was like a son; Grand-cats Cirrus, Humo, Snow Meow and Mozart. Sisters Polly Trujillo, Teddy Chapman and Vivian Duran; In-laws Frank Romero (Lorraine), Rosie Sanchez, Carmen Carrejo (Patricio) and many nieces, nephews and cousins; best friends Patsy Esquibel and Kathy Lomax.
Olivia and Henry owned Advanced Copy Systems for over 25 years and were able to travel the world with their business.
Olivia loved her family and Friends very much, and asks you all to love your families, keep them close to you and be there for one another. Please think and pray for those that have no one to remember them and this includes animals, trees and Earth. Olivia loved life and was full of joy, pure justice and goodness toward all. She loved playing tennis, the casino, reading books, music, politics, planting flowers and being in her yard. She was an advocate against wrong doing and would speak up to do right by people and animals. She believed we should all be good, fair and do the right thing, no matter what.
It was Olivia’s wish that due to COVID-19 a mass of Christian burial to be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations in her memory to Felines and Friends of NM, Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary or Espanola Humane.
The Universe lost a very wonderful example of what it is to be a good person. Heaven gained a most excellent angel.
The Family would like to thank all those that were helpful and kind to her while dealing with this horrible disease.
The Family of Olivia Romero has entrusted the care of their beloved one to Avista Cremation & Burial "where healing begins"
