Published in the Albuquerque Journal on Tuesday November 03, 2009

Esther H. Romero, age 84, beloved mother, grandmother and sister, went to her heavenly home to be with the Lord, Friday, October 30, 2009, while surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Santa Rosa, NM on January 15, 1925. She was preceded in death by her sons, Anthony and Geronimo Romero; and by her brother Charles. Esther is survived by her loving children, Robert Romero and wife Dolores, Vickie Morse, Rudy Romero and wife Patsy, Mark Romero and wife Sylvia, Geraldine Garduno, Charlotte Valerio and husband Charles, Esther Garcia and husband Dan, and Patricia Rivera; her grandchildren, Debbie, John, Lori, Lawrence, Annette, Bernadette, Ronald, Anthony, Rick, Mark, Santiago, Augustina, Eric, Leroy, Julian, Bennigna, Jamie, Alfredo and Elias; 26 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren. Also surviving are her brother, Ernest Hoehne and wife Marcella; sister, Gloria Montoya; and numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. Mom bore her illness well and complained very little. She tried to meet life with a sense of humor up until the end. One of her last quips when asked what the DNR band on her wrist stood for, she politely replied, "Dinner No Reservations". Good bye Mom, grandma you're in a better place now. We love you. Esther will be greatly missed by all. A Rosary will be recited Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Daniels Family Funeral Services - Alameda Mortuary.
