APODACA -- Ronna Lee Apodaca, 84, went to be with her husband and the Lord on Saturday, April 15, 2006. She was preceded in death recently by her husband, Max. Ronna Lee is survived by her son, Jim Apodaca of San Antonio, TX; daughter, Joyce Duran of Albuquerque, NM; brothers, Don Merritt of Albuquerque, NM and Bruce Merritt of Edgewood, NM; sister, Carolyn Belanus of Artesia, NM; five grandsons, Barry Duran of Salt Lake City, UT, Scott Anthony Duran of Phoenix, AZ and Brian, Mark and Jacob Apodaca of San Antonio, TX; and three great-grandchildren. Ronna Lee was born in Cushing, OK on February 25, 1922 to Roman and Verda Merritt. She moved to Albuquerque as a young girl and was attracted to its mild, dry climate. As a child, she loved to play baseball and spend time at the train depot hoping to catch a glimpse of movie stars passing through town. She graduated from Albuquerque High School and it was there that she fell in love with Max Apodaca. They were married on Friday, June 5, 1942. Ronna Lee was an avid card player and belonged to several "Bridge Groups." Her passion though, was her husband and family. Whether it was a large get-to-gether with relatives or a simple card game with her daughter, son and daughter-in-law, she thrived in the presence of loved ones. The mountains around Albuquerque were a great source of happiness and the family cabin in the Manzano's was the site of many family gatherings. Later in life, Max and Ronna Lee began journeying across America in their RV, "Gertie." As long as she was with Max, her life was complete. Her relationship with Max cannot simply be defined as love. They were inseparable. Although suffering from Alzheimer's disease, the loss of her husband was a burden she could not bear. Her death came just two months after the loss of Max. Our loving and caring mother has gone to join her husband again and we wish her eternal peace and happiness. Services will be held Saturday, April 22, 2006, 10:00 a.m., at French Mortuary, Wyoming Blvd. Chapel. Interment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery. French Mortuary, Inc. 7121 Wyoming Blvd. NE (505) 823-9400
