He is preceded in death by his twin sister, Mary Elizabeth; his daughter, Mary Elizabeth; his parents, Giuseppe and Concetta (Allia) Arite; and brothers, Anthony and Samuel Arite.

James Arite will be remembered as a gentle man who often let his silence speak for him. What he did say was always full of wit, wisdom, and love. James could often be found enjoying life's simple things; a good meal, daily mass, or spending time with his family though often all three came together to be enjoyed as one. He was completely devoted to his family and his Catholic faith. He was extremely proud of his Italian-American heritage, and also highly patriotic. He had a lifelong enjoyment of baseball, so as a young boy he and his brother were bat boys and scorekeepers for the Toledo Mud Hens beginning at Swayne Field in Toledo. On television and the radio, he often cheered for them and his Detroit Tigers though in later life found as much enjoyment in the Albuquerque Isotopes and the Colorado Rockies. He held a deep love of learning which he instilled and encouraged in all his children and grandchildren. He continued this love all of his life; doing crossword puzzles to continue learning new facts and words. He attended St. Ann Elementary, Central Catholic High School in Toledo, OH, and graduated from University of Toledo with a bachelor's degree in history. In 1955 he entered the Navy and spent his time on the USS Lexington. Later he worked as an accountant for Homestake Mining Company. He spent much of his early retirement traveling with his wife. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to a favorite Catholic Charity, St Pius High School in Albuquerque, or the American Heart Association.

BOWERS, MELISSA K. Melissa K. Bowers, age 44, passed away peacefully on March 12, 2014 after a long illness with her loving family by her side. Melissa was a life long resident of Albuquerque. Melissa most recently worked for Direct Buy. She was known as a super sales person. Several times she ranked as the top, or near the top, sales person in the nation for that company. More important to Melissa was her relationship with her God, Jehovah. Everyone who came into contact with her soon found that out. She loved to share her hope in God's Kingdom with everyone she met. Melissa was baptized as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1984 and served her God faithfully right up to her last breath. She was preceded in death by her siblings Kimberly and Matthew Bowers. Melissa is survived by her parents Ron & Karin Bowers; Larry Mills; grandmother Thea Gallegos; brother Kenneth Bowers, his wife Courtney; brothers Patrick Bowers and Adrian Mills; niece Elizabeth Chavez; nephew Timothy Bowers; uncle Bob Bowers; Marian Davis, her husband Henry; Jasmine Briggs, her husband Rocky; many loving cousins and countless special friends. Melissa touched many lives with her love, spirit, and strength. Perhaps one of her most outstanding qualities was her generosity. She was always willing to lend a helping hand, no matter what circumstances she herself was in. She always looked for the best in others. She definitely affected the lives of those she touched. She will be greatly missed. Her confidence in the resurrection hope was strong to the very end. She was sustained by Martha's words to Jesus in the Bible at John 11:24 "I know he (I) will rise in the resurrection..." We look forward to that reunion. What a joyful day that will be! A memorial service will be held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 6509 Signal NE, at 1:30 PM on Saturday, March 22, 2014.
