HOWES -- REV. DR. ROY ELISHA At age 86 was called home to be with the Lord on September 25, 2006. He died peacefully with family at his bedside in Auburn, WA. Roy was born March 6, 1920 in the ranching country of Pierre, SD. Roy and his sister, Mona, were raised on a cattle ranch near Midland and the Black Hills of South Dakota. Roy's family moved to Spokane, WA where he attended Knox Presbyterian Church. In Spokane, he graduated from North Central High School and then earned his Bachelor's degree from Whitworth College. While attending Whitworth he preached every Sunday at Asotin Presbyterian Church in Washington and also met Evelyn Gibbs whom he then married. Roy and his wife moved to San Francisco Theological Seminary where in 1945, he received his Masters in Theology with Honors. Roy served on the Board of Trustees for Whitworth College and later granted the Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree from Whitworth. In the same year he was called to pastor the Magnolia Presbyterian Church in Seattle, WA, building a new sanctuary during his 5-year ministry. From 1950 to 1960 Roy accepted the Senior pastor position of Millwood Presbyterian Church. Roy then accepted the Senior pastorate at Albuquerque First Presbyterian Church in 1960 and then went to the First Presbyterian Church in Fort Collins, CO. Following remarriage to Judy Boyd, Roy and his wife moved to Boise, ID where Roy served for five years as Senate State Legislative Chaplain in Boise, ID, and pastored the First Presbyterian Church there in 1970. From 1976 to 1982 he founded and pastored an independent church, Boise Valley Christian Communion. In 1990 Roy retired and received honorable recognition for his service and Christian Ministry from Presbytery of the West, Evangelical Presbyterian Church. Roy moved to Renton, WA in 1992 near his eldest daughter and her family. During this time, Roy continued to be in various active ministries such as Breakthrough Intercessory Prayer. Roy's love for the outdoors evolved around hunting and fishing in Washington, New Mexico, and Idaho, fishing the Spokane river, and hiking in the Colorado Mountains, often shared with his children and grandchildren. He spoke fondly of summers spent in the Black Hills of South Dakota where President Calvin Coolidge lifted him off his feet at the Mount Rushmore dedication. Roy always kept before him and deep in his heart this principle of the Word of God: "God never asks about our ability, or inability, but about our availability." He never hesitated to point others towards relying upon Jesus Christ and the power of prayer. Preceded in death by his parents, first wife, and older sister, Roy is survived by his second wife and five children: Sharon Pierce, her spouse and grown children in Seattle, WA, Milton Howes, his spouse and two children in Boise, ID, Roberta Robinson, her spouse and three children in Tulsa, OK, Phillip Howes, his spouse and daughter in Rowe, NM, and David Howes, his wife and two children in Albuquerque, NM, and beloved nieces and nephews. The family wishes to thank the nursing and medical staff of Auburn Regional Medical Center who graciously, compassionately and professionally assisted Roy and his family during his last days. Family and friends will gather at Millwood Presbyterian Church, Washington for a Memorial Service Tuesday, October 3, 2006 at 2:00 p.m.

Julian was a great man, and he will be greatly missed by his loving family. A Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 on Thursday, October 5, 2006 at the St Bede's Episcopal Church; 1601 S.

ORTIZ Y PINO DE KLEVEN -- Maria Concepcion Ortiz y Pino, known as the Grande Dame of New Mexico, died in the early morning hours on September 30, 2006 from complications of pneumonia. Concha was born in the village of Galisteo in 1910, two years before New Mexico was to become the 47th state of the union. Her family has been politically active and instrumental in shaping the history of New Mexico for the past three hundred years. For almost a century, with a persona larger than life, she aided legions of people through her active involvement in both local and national politics. During her lifetime 19 New Mexico governors and six U.S. presidents, as well as countless state and national politicians knew her by her nickname, "Concha." Her political career began in 1933 when she was 21. She set out through rural New Mexico with Senator Dennis Chavez as part of Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidential campaign reaching out to Spanish-speaking voters in rural New Mexico, aiding in his election and the "New Deal Era" which helped bring an end to the Great Depression. It was this first political experience which whetted Concha's appetite for politics leading to her lifelong advocacy for the poor and disabled. In 1941 she received the national distinction of becoming the first female Whip of a state legislature, when she was elected to that position in the 15th New Mexico state legislature. During her lifetime she served on more than 60 state and national boards. Concha was preceded in death by her parents, Jose and Pablita; brothers, Frank and Josesito; sisters, Josefita, Margaret and Mela; brother-in-law, Robert H. Martin; and husband, Victor Kleven. She is survived by nephew, Jose Ortiz y Pino III; first cousin, Pedro Ortiz y Pino; and niece, Alice Gomez; grand-nieces and -nephews, Susan Varela, Steve Gomez, Francie Miles, Carla Gomez, Maria Ortiz y Pino, Jose Ortiz y Pino IV; cousins, Gerald Ortiz y Pino, Michael Ortiz y Pino, Loretta Ortiz y Pino, Paul Ortiz y Pino, Ron Ortiz Dinkel, Judt Hasted, Artuto Ortiz, Nelson Ortiz, Margo Ortiz y Davis, Maria Ortiz y Davis Catanach; and at least three generations of nieces and nephews. Concha also leaves behind many devoted friends in New Mexico and around the world. A Rosary will be recited Wednesday, October 4, 2006, at 8:00 p.m., at St. Charles Church in Albuquerque. On Thursday a Rosary will be recited in Santa Fe at the Santuario de Guadalupe at 7:00 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, October 6, 2006 at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi in Santa Fe followed by interment Services at Rosario Cemetery.
