Delia Morales, 70, a resident of Silver City, NM entered into eternal rest Wednesday, December 26, 2012 at Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City. 

She was born July 13th in Hanover, NM to Fidel Lucero and Josephina Rodriguez.  Delia loved her little girl, she had several pets that she loved and were her companions.  She enjoyed her hobbies and made sure everyone went home with a knick-knack of some sort like it or not.  Delia spent her nights bundled up on her porch saying her prayers for everyone from here to there.  We thank each and every one of you for our mother’s friendship.  She was kind to all and always had an open door and giving heart.  She loved her family and friends and all were welcome to her home. 

She is survived by her loving husband, Joe Morales; her daughters, Toni Jaurequi (Ron Castillo) of Silver City; Jessica Madrid of Santa Fe; Sandy Logan of Missoula, Montana; two brothers, Fidel Lucero Jr. of Mimbres; Robert Lucero of Hanover; seven grandchildren, Tanya and David Legarda of Rio Rancho; Eric Dean of Silver City; Ronnie Amador of Sierra Vista, AZ; Candice Sena of Santa Fe; Crystal Zaragoza of Colorado Springs, CO; Ashley Urbina of Silver City; ten great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by parents, brother, Reynaldo Lucero; sister, Margaret Ramirez; son, Ricardo Altamirano; grandson, Eddie Joe Jaurequi. 

May angels surround you; I’m now in my castle in the sky- Delia.  Per her wishes cremation will take place at Terrazas Crematory. Arrangements are with Terrazas Funeral Chapels and Crematory “Trusted care for the ones you love” ~ 575-537-0777.  To send condolences, visit www.terrazasfuneralchapel.com.
