GROMEK -- Alice Ann Gromek age 72, of Albuquerque, NM, passed away Friday, April 17, 2009, at Presbyterian-Kaseman Hospital. Alice was born December 24, 1936, in New York City, NY, to Morgan and Mary Walsh. She married John Martin Gromek on September 28, 1957, in New York City, NY. Alice grew-up in the Bronx right up the street from Yankee Stadium. She modeled for the Dale Garrick Agency before marrying 2nd Lieutenant John Gromek. They traveled the world and the United States together before settling in New Mexico in 1972. Alice was fiercely devoted to her husband, seven children and ten grandchildren. She provided a warm loving home for her family for over 51 years, always putting her family above everything else. Alice doted on her grandchildren and traveled often to birthdays, dance exhibitions, soccer games, volleyball games, graduations and baseball games. While she loved to dance and spend time whale watching on her lanai in Hawaii, her favorite times were spent in her home in Albuquerque with her family, especially during holiday gatherings. Alice cherished her backyard; the swimming parties; seeing the Sandia Mountains everyday; watching the humming birds feed during her morning cup of coffee; and, planting flowers every spring. She was an avid and voracious reader and you could always find the latest mystery thriller on her night stand. Her quick wit and lively personality made life in her home fun and memorable. With such a large family, she often quipped, "We're off like a herd of turtles!", and "Did you think we would never get here?" at the start of family outings and journeys. She was very much loved and will be deeply missed by her entire family. Surviving Alice, are her husband of 51 years, John of Albuquerque, her children and grandchildren, Stacey Marie Lopez and her husband Rey of Ft. Collins, CO, and their children Elizabeth, Alexandra and John-Reynold; John Morgan Gromek of Las Vegas, NV.; Christopher Gromek and his wife Nancy of Gilbert, AZ, and their children Crystal and Ethan; Mark Gromek of Berkley, MI; Michael Anthony Gromek and his wife Doris of Santa Fe, NM, and his children Michael Jr., Mary and Sara; Robert John Gromek and his wife Monica of Amarillo, TX., and their children Ryan and Conor; and, Matthew Paul Gromek and his wife Stephanie of Albuquerque, NM; one sister, Mary Ann Walsh of Poughkeepsie, NY, two brothers, Gerald Walsh and his wife Dorothy of Irvine, CA., and Timothy Walsh of Charlotte, N.C. She was preceded in death by her parents. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated at 2 p.m., Wednesday, April 22, 2009, at John XXIII Catholic Community, 4831 Tramway Ridge Drive, NE, 87111.

ORTEGA -- Carlos The sun was out today as God embraced a timeless soul. His was a marked passing with a quiet fortitude that was a reflection of his life. Carlos Ortega was born in the land of Arabela, New Mexico. It was a still, beautiful land that reflected in his eyes as he watched and listened to his family grow. He was never one for words, but his love was as deep as the heritage he passed on to his great grandchildren. He left for his journey among his loving family in a home that he built with his hands. It was a home whose cornerstone was chiseled from a quarry of love and decency. It is this legacy he leaves for his children and grandchildren. It takes great courage to exist through so many decades in a stoic and ambivalent world that seems to both embrace and repel us in its loving care with every new day and challenge. "Tata" had that tenacious soul and a depth of courage this generation may never understand or be able to comprehend. He was in the most hardened sense of the word a true man, and in the tenderest sense of the words husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle and friend. By E.S. Carlos Ortega, 91, of Albuquerque was preceded in death by wife of 66 years Josefita; granddaughters, Jennifer and Tina. Survivors include two sons, Carlos Jr. and Lou Sanchez, Juan Ortega, daughter Carmen and husband David Chavez. Grandsons John Vincent Chavez and wife Monica, Matthew Ortega, Tulsa, Ok., and Mitchell Ortega, Anchorage, Alaska; great-grandsons Gannon, Logan and Aden Chavez, sister, Rose Brunson, T or C. Constant weekly visitors friend Ernest Guillen and nephew JoRay and JoAnn Ortega and many other surviving nieces, nephews and friends that were all a part of "Tata's" 91 years. Carlos retired from Sandia Labs at the age of 55. Early retirement gave him the opportunity to spend time with his beloved family, home and livestock which were all his pride and joy. He especially enjoyed his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Rosary will be held Monday April 20, 2009 at Gate of Heaven Chapel, 7500 Paseo del Norte N.E., 821-0800 at 10:00 a.m. and Burial M (505) 228-1040 Mass to follow.
