Vigil -- Adelina Gonzales Vigil, 50, of Bosque Farms died on Saturday, April 27, 2002 as the result of a ranching accident. She was doing what she loved to do which was riding horseback. Adelina was born in Tucumcari on July 28, 1951 to Mary Casados Gonzales and Manuel Gonzales. She was raised on the family ranch in Bueyeros, NM which she considered God's Country. She attended school at the Bueyeros School, then transferred to Clayton Schools where she met and married her high school sweetheart, Albino Vigil. She graduated from Clayton High School in 1969. She attended nursing school in Amarillo, TX and worked for the NW Texas Hospital. She then moved to Los Lunas, NM and began work with Lovelace Medical Center where she worked for 26 years. She also worked for Presbyterian Urgent Care. 14 months ago she was diagnosed with breast cancer and began the long process of fighting the dreaded disease. On April 18, 2002 she was informed that her fight was successful and the cancer was in remission. Adelina was a faithful and active parishioner who was involved in numerous parish organizations and activities. As a devout Catholic she made Cursillo No. 163 and a special pilgrimage to the shrine of the"Virgen de Guadalupe" in Mexico City whom Adelina so deeply loved and honored. In addition, she was a member of the American Legion Post 99 Auxiliary in honor of her father who was a World War II Veteran. Adelina will always be remembered by her family, friends, and co-workers as an extremely compassionate and caring person whose main objective was always to help and comfort others in any way possible. Whether providing medical advice or care; cooking a hot meal for family, friends and half of Valencia County; or offering a"Cold Dr. Pepper" to a thirsty acquaintance, she was prone to extend a helping hand, putting her needs behind those of others. Her contagious laugh and generosity will be greatly missed. Her father, Manuel Gonzales; uncle, Amarante Casados; and in-laws, Nestor and Amelia Vigil, preceded her in death. Survivors include husband of 35 years, Albino; three sons, Dion and wife, Lorena of Albuquerque, Derrick and wife, Myrna of Albuquerque and Dominic of Albuquerque; two granddaughters, La Rae Vigil and Aitanna Vigil; and grandson, Andres Vigil; her mother, Mary C. Gonzales of Bueyeros; two sisters, Rita of San Franciso, CA and Rebecca and husband, Adelmo Archuleta of Albuquerque; also many loving nieces, nephews, and friends; and by her very special friend, Fr.
