TOMASZEWSKI -- Laura Marian Tomaszewski, age 88, peacefully passed away Saturday, February 28, 2009. A native of Detroit, MI, Laura married her high school sweetheart, Francis Xavier "Frank" Tomaszewski in 1944, and together they shared many an adventure until his death in 1998. She was a proud veteran, having served as a WAC during WWII. Frank's work brought them to Albuquerque in 1956 and they were both immediately "enchanted." They loved the high desert, most especially the cabin they built in the Pecos wilderness. They were kids again every time they could jump in their pickup truck and head for the hills. She was retired from her job at the University of New Mexico Medical/Legal Bookstore, work that gave her much satisfaction for many years. Laura is survived by her five children, Frank Tomaszewski and his wife, Kazuko, of Auburn, WA, Mary Lynn McGuire and her husband, Joe, of Albuquerque, Katherine Mitchell of Portland, OR, Mark Tomaszewski and Melody Stapleton, both of Albuquerque. She was Grandma to Kevin, Kristie, Mark, Brian, Erin, Sidney, Hillary and Allison; and in more recent years enjoyed the arrivals of eight great-grandchildren, Ryan, Ichiro, Kadin, Vivian, Rumi, Yayoi, Alexa and Xavier. Also surviving are one sister, Camille Gutowski of Detroit, MI; and one brother, Anthony "Ted" Gutowski of Redford, MI. Laura was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease seven years ago. While she was not able to enjoy the sharing of memories that comes with old age, she was able to live in the moment with contentment and grace. A Rosary will be recited on Thursday, March 5, 2009, 7:00 p.m., at French Mortuary Wyoming Blvd. Chapel. Funeral Mass will be celebrated Friday, March 6, 2009, 8:30 a.m., at Our Lady of Annunciation Catholic Church, 2621 Vermont NE.

WATERS -- Robert A. Waters, July 14th 1923 - March 3, 2009, Sunrise ~ Sunset With a song in his heart, he captivated and inspired, challenged and required. Strength of character, strength of resolve, strength to cherish, and to love. A man who would look you squarely in the eye and dare you to think. A Navy Veteran, defender of country, steadfast to hold close the truths he embraced. Twenty years in Service of State, to correct and uplift, a genuine hand to his fellow man. The roar of the lion equaled in might only by that which found compassion of the lamb. His baritone voice raised on high in harmony, melodious among the Highland Seniors. The joy of sharing, that whispers floating gently amidst powerful cymbals ignited glory. A gift carried on wings of the wind, sung in splendor, most soothing and resplendent. Intellect, insight, an irrefutable lifetime of wisdom shared unselfishly and of the heart. Of the tallest to the smallest, the shine in their eyes shall yet be the reflection of his. Not one memory lost, no moment left to linger, the years stole nothing of his grasp. Family are those who gather always about you, who accept all which encompasses you. Their joy is your laughter, their tears your pain, their breath the gift and fruit of your life. We shall define those whom define us, we shall know them as family, and it shall be. Left of this earth to soar to greater heights, he is remembered and lives on with us forever. The adored and cherished love of his life for thirty eight years, his Dear Olivia. Revered with love, Sons, Gary, Glenn, Brian and Robert. Heart of his heart, Grandchildren, Whitney, Shawn, Heather and Dylan. The immeasurable fortune of love gifted of the many, many Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, Great Great Grandchildren, family, friends and acquaintances, whom brought the greatest pleasure and uplifting to his heart. Be kind to and love one another, this day and everyday which follows in his memory. Friends may visit at French Mortuary on Friday, March 6, 2009 from 5:00 p. to 8:00 p.m. Service will be held at 10:00am on Saturday, March 7, 2009 at French Mortuary, 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE with interment to follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery. Please visit our online guestbook for Robert at RememberTheirStory.com French 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE (505) 275-3500
