DOSTAL -- Lois Jean Danford Dostal died in Albuquerque, NM on 4 April 2006. Born 7 August, 1931 in Chicago, IL. She followed her sister, Phyllis, attending public schools in Chicago and graduated from Schurz high school. She continued formal education at Coe College in Iowa that culminated in a BA degree in elementary school education in June 1952 graduating in just three years. Married in 1952 to George "Dusty" Dostal, a Coe classmate, she immediately became part of the Air Force family when George was called to active duty. The Air Force family was a happy part of her life for the next 25 years during which she taught first graders and became the mother and taskmaster to three sons, Steve, Casey and John, who with their families, all presently reside in California. Lois, after retirement from the Air Force family, found interest in income tax preparation and medicine. She was a tax preparer and tax instructor for many years with Tax Counseling for the Elderly. She pursued medicine by attending Nurse's Training at Antelope Valley College and became a Registered Critical Care Nurse. Graduation coincided with her 50th birthday. Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center, Critical Care Unit, became her place to practice her skills for more than ten years. Retiring from nursing brought her back to New Mexico and Albuquerque in 1989. She was a very savvy lady who was computer literate, loved crossword puzzles, tax trivia, sudoku puzzles, golf, bridge, and flying trips to various reunions with her husband. She enjoyed her four granddaughters, particularly the interaction with them during their most formative years. She imparted a creed to those that knew her, that success was the result of hard personal work and was a practicing example of that creed. Special thanks to the staff of VistaCare Hospice that provided what comforts they could for Lois and the family. Memorial contributions should be directed to VistaCare Hospice Foundation, 5639 Jefferson St. NE, Albuquerque, NM 87109 or UNM Foundation, Cancer Research, Bldg 2, Suite 203 Albuquerque, NM 87102.

FAUCON -- Ivan Faucon (retired Major U.S. Army) resident of Albuquerque passed away in his home on April 8, 2006 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Ivan was born on May 31, 1922 in Springfield, Illinois to Martha and Valentine Faucon. A Veteran of WWII, Ivan joined the U.S. Calvary in 1940 and retired after 25 years of service from the Corps of Engineers, and again, after another 25 years with the Civil Service. In 1945 Ivan Faucon would meet his Bride (and his match), Rolande Poulard in Reims, France. Their love and their life together would last for over 60 years and in concert they would travel the world, sharing this wanderlust with their children. Ivan, from humble beginnings, became a mentor for his colleagues, children, nieces, nephews and surrogate sons and daughters. His wise advise was always highly valued. He was also a builder, an engineer, and a soldier. However, second to being a husband, Ivan was a father, and our final lesson comes from him through Corinthians, Chapter 13, verses 4 -13: .Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; Does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; Does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; Bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. .For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known. And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love. Ivan is preceded in death by his son, Phillip Faucon. Survivors include his wife, Rolande Faucon; sibling, Arthur Faucon; son and wife, Ivan and Barbara Faucon; daughter and husband, Micheline and Michael Repasky, their children Aaron and Renee Repasky; and daughter and husband, Carmen and Barry Woodward. The family would like to thank my mother's sister, Micheline Coen, for her endless devotion, the San Juan Bautista Parish for their prayers and Vista Care-Hospice for helping the family transition with Ivan's decline in health. .Though grave digger's toil is long, sharp their spades, their muscles strong. They but thrust their buried men, back in the human mind again. -Under Ben Bulben, William Yeats A burial for his earthly remains with full military honors will take place at the Santa Fe National Cemetery on May 29, 2006 11:00 a.m.

GODINEZ -- Helen Helen Armijo Godinez April 29, 1933-April 14, 2004 Mom, As I sat watching by your bed A million thoughts ran through my head. Of just how much were you aware? Did you know that I was there? Could you feel the love I sent, In whispered word, Or prayer bent? Upon my cross as I asked God, To spare your life for my selfish cause? So that I could tell you just once more, "I love you Mom!" as I had before. And we could chat like days of old, Over cans of Sprite rimmed with gold. And laugh and joke, or just to share some small hurt and perhaps a tear. To talk of the past, or things yet to do. To sniffle, and sneeze, and say "Bless You!" All these dreams now hang in shreds, As I sit here with bowed down head. And ponder on these sad thoughts. Just to wonder, "Was it all for naught?" It's been two years that you have been gone, "I Love and Miss You!" Your Daughter, Frieda Maldonado
