Ida Luján

Ida Luján, born December 27, 1927, passed away peacefully in Rio Rancho, NM on Sunday, April 13, 2008. She was surrounded by family, friends, prayer and song. Ida loved to dance and listen to her sons play their guitars. She also enjoyed playing the accordion and the piano. She was famous for her beautifully crafted crochet blankets. Ida grew up on a farm in Mora, NM. Her strong will, zest for life, and unconditional love for family and friends was respected and appreciated by all who knew her. She is survived by her sister Margo Nicholson; her sons, Floyd, Phillip, Ruben, Tim, and David; and her daughters, Pauline, Mary Jane and Priscilla. She was preceded in death by her oldest son, Joe; and youngest daughter, Bernadette. She will be missed by all including her nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great grandchildren; in particular, her granddaughter, Lori who admired her strength. Ida spent the last seven years of her life with her daughter, Mary Jane and husband, Charlie Martínez who loved her dearly. The family would like to give a special thanks to the ICU staff at the Westside Lovelace Hospital as well as Ida's cardiologist, Dr. Dubroff and her primary care physician, Dr. García. Memorial services will be held at the Mt. Calvary Cemetery in Las Vegas, NM, at a later date.
