SAAVEDRA -- ROSELLA ANAYA Was born December 7, 1925 and passed away on Sunday, January 15, 2012 in Albuquerque, NM at the age of 86. Rosella graduated from Harwood Girls Schools in Home Economics. She was a homemaker but helped all her life in running the family businesses. She was an inspiration to her family because they were the center of her life and everything she did was devoted to them and their wellbeing. She loved to cook, sew, crochet, and knit and her passions were passed down with gentle guidance and patience to her children and grandchildren who wanted to learn these skills. Her red chile was known to all that entered her kitchen and many people always encouraged her to market it to the world. She would simply laugh and tell the story how her husband always told her that you should never skimp on the meat and that is how she taught us all to make it. She loved her children and grandchildren and through her years of acquired wisdom passed on her knowledge and advice to them. She was a mother to the many friends her sons brought home to eat and stay a while, and always had an open door. She is loved and remembered by all. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Efren Saavedra; son, Sammy Saavedra; and grandson, Robbie Saavedra. Rosella is survived by her sons, Ruben Saavedra, Efren Saavedra Jr., Richard Saavedra and Cathy Chavez, Paul Saavedra of Albuquerque, and Anthony and Jennifer Saavedra of Monrovia, California; daughter-in-law, Kathy Saavedra; grandchildren, Ruben Jr., Richie, Clyde, Samantha, Brittany, Chloe, Savannah, Mackie, Ashlee, Cassie and Nickel; 13 great-grandchildren; as well as many other family and friends who love and will miss her.

D'ARCO -- PAT C. The city of Rio Rancho lost one of its most dedicated public servants on January 13, 2012 with the passing of former Mayor Pat D'Arco. Mayor D'Arco, born in New York on September 30, 1920, is survived by his wife, Bette D'Arco, and his beloved Yorkie, Angel; son, Joseph and wife Louise and their children, Jennifer, Danielle, John and Andrea of Bloomfield, NJ, son, Michael and his wife Viola and their sons, Michael Patrick, Vincent and Christopher of Albuquerque, NM, daughter, Janna Pfautz and husband Bob, daughter, Heather Goldhammer of Hot Springs, AR, daughter, Cathy Thompson and husband Carl, sons, James and Robert of Albuquerque, NM, daughter, Georgie Stuart and husband Clinton and their children, Shea and Lacy of Edmond, OK, son, Bill Little and wife Kathy and their son, Michael of Bosque; nephew, Tom Smith and wife Annie of Houston, TX; niece, Karen Nickelson and her husband Allen; sister-in-law, Penny McCann of Rio Rancho, NM. Mayor D'Arco also is survived by 11 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son, Reverend Father Andrew P. D'Arco and grandson, Galen E. Schildknecht. Mayor D'Arco's loss will also be felt by many loyal, supportive friends including Bill and Debbi Moore, Joe and Rose Maniaci, their son, and Mayor D'Arco's godson, Sal Maniaci, Mayor Tom Swisstack, Don and Dianne Chalmers and countless other friends too numerous to mention. Mayor D'Arco was instrumental in the development of the City of Rio Rancho. He served as both Mayor and City Councilor since moving to the area in 1974 from New Jersey. The move followed his retirement from an illustrious career with various United States Government entities concluding as Labor Council Advisor. Mr. D'Arco currently served as Chair of the City's Planning & Zoning Commission and as City representative to the New Mexico Department of Transportation (NMDOT). In 1981, D'Arco began his visionary political service as a City Councilor. While serving in this capacity he refused compensation and requested that his salary be used to fund the City's first annual 4th of July fireworks display. From 1990-1994, he served as the sixth mayor of Rio Rancho and he began attending the monthly NMDOT Commission meetings. The native of New York, Mr. D'Arco soon developed an even stronger vision behind improving transportation. He has served the Planning & Zoning Commission with its focus on the development of the City's transportation infrastructure. Because of the fruitful efforts and negotiations with the AMREP Corporation; D'Arco was able to get the corporation to donate the rights-of-way to widen NM 528 from US 550 to Northern Boulevard, a central road in the City. He was also instrumental in the partnership between Rio Rancho, Intel and NMDOT which resulted in the widening and improvements of NM 528. In 2007, a 9.7 mile section of NM 528 in Rio Rancho (from Westside Boulevard north to the junction of US 550) was renamed "Pat D'Arco Highway" by the NMDOT Commission. Additionally, he was instrumental in numerous other transportation initiatives such as the Northwest Loop, Unser and Paseo del Vulcan. Other projects he played an active role in include the Sports Complex, Rio Rancho High School, Hawk Site, Esther Bone Library and Presbyterian Health Care's first presence in Rio Rancho. To the time of his death, Mayor D'Arco's commitment and efforts continued to play a vital and instrumental role in the development of the City. A disabled World War II Veteran with service in the Pacific Theater was a member of many organizations including the Elks Lodge, American Legion Post 118, St. Thomas Aquinas Church and a life member of the Disable American Veterans. A Visitation will be held from 11:30 am - 5:30 pm on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at Daniels Family Funeral Services, Sara Road Chapel, 4310 Sara Road SE, Rio Rancho, NM.
