BATTAT -- Aurora Mares Battat, 83, a resident of Albuquerque since 1977, died Tuesday, March 30, 2004. She is survived by her daughter, Anita Battat, of Albuquerque; sons, Kenneth Battat of Albuquerque and David Battat of Boston, MA; grandchildren, Thaddeus Jude Battat Beeley of Farmington, Margaret Summer Battat and Daniel Alexander Battat, both of Boston, MA; sisters, Carolina Hall and Eleanor Myers of Albuquerque, Celina Salazar and Elvira Archuleta both of Taos, NM, Tonita Negrette of San Francisco, CA; brothers, Belisandro Mares of Albuquerque, Orlando Mares of Belen, and Carlos Mares of Taos, NM. She was preceded in death by her sister, Flora Martinez and brothers, Andres Mares, Robert (Isaiah) Mares, and Eugene Mares. Aurora was born in the mountains of northern New Mexico in Blacklake on January 11, 1921 and moved to Taos while still a young girl. The sky, mountains, and people she grew up with shaped her view of life, which she kept until the end of her days. She married and moved to St. Louis, MO, then to Los Alamos, NM, in the late nineteen forties. She devoted her life in Los Alamos to raising her children and unselfishly supporting her husband, family and friends. It has been said that Los Alamos was a town where friends become family-everyone there was from somewhere else, a community of immigrants. She was fortunate to be geographically close to her family in Taos, and perhaps this is why she so successfully and continuously made strangers into friends and friends into family. She was a Charter member of Trinity on the Hill Episcopal Church, serving in many capacities, and always made time to help the less fortunate. She created and organized the Shop on the Corner, which clothed many needy Northern New Mexico residents. She moved to Albuquerque with her husband in 1977 and then to the Courtyard Dementia Unit at the Albuquerque Woodmark in 1999 where she spent her last years surrounded by family and strangers who became friends who became family who all remember her smile and voice and h er love for the earth and all its creatures. A memorial service will be held Friday, April 02, 2004, 3:30 p.m. French Mortuary, Lomas Blvd, 10500 Lomas Blvd NE with Lay Minister to the Holy Orders Randy Lutz officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family invites contributions in her memory to Taos Christian Academy, 814 Witt Road, Taos, NM 87571. French Mortuary 10500 Lomas Blvd NE 275-3500

BLOUNT -- Carrie-Mae MacNair Blount passed away on Monday, March 29, 2004. She was born in New Jersey, the daughter of Walter Archer MacNair and Vernna-Mae Growt MacNair, and graduated from Goucher College in Towson, Maryland. During a visit to New Mexico she met and later married her husband of fifty-one years, Robert J. Blount. Survivors include daughter Susan Blount Wiarda, husband Kevin Wiarda, and son Russell Cole Wiarda; son Lawrence Carter Blount, wife Michelle Kaeser Blount, daughter Emily Susan Blount, and son Matthew Robert Blount; daughter Holly Blount Laird, husband J. Michael Laird, and sons Charles Michael Laird and Jon Ross Laird; and special friend Karen Lou Carlson. Her innate sense of fairness was upset during an election ballot count at a meeting. This lead to formal study then to becoming a Professional Registered Parliamentarian and ultimately President of the National Association of Parliamentarians. She served as teacher, consultant, and convention parliamentarian for local, national, and international organizations. She continued her membership and active participation in the Pi Beta Phi fraternity after college, and worked nearly every year with the chapter on campus at UNM, as well as with other pan-hellenic groups nationally. Carrie-Mae believed in giving back to the community through volunteer activity. A favorite was serving as a member and chairman of Albuquerque Crime Stoppers in its early and formative years. She was a long-time member of the Junior League of Albuquerque and served on many community boards. Carrie-Mae enjoyed being a wife and mother, reading, sewing, skiing, water skiing, and was an avid fan of college women's and men's basketball. High on the list of her special friends are the doctors, nurses, and staff at The University of New Mexico Cancer Research and Treatment Center who helped her battle the disease for twenty years. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the UNM Cancer Research and Treatment Center, 900 Camino de Salud, Albuquerque, NM 87131.

CLINE -- Donald Cline, 83, a resident of Albuquerque since 1942, passed away on Sunday, March 28, 2004. He was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 9th, 1920, the youngest of seven children. As a teenager, he developed a serious lung condition and, after a number of years of unsuccessful treatment, his doctors told him that his only hope was to move to a drier climate. He left his family and friends back home and, having never seen so much as a picture postcard of Albuquerque, arrived here by train on his 22nd birthday. He checked into the YMCA across the street from the old Alvarado train station and started his new life. This new life turned out to be a series of fortunate circumstances, not the least of which was overcoming his lung condition. He eventually obtained employment at Stromberg's, a local men's clothing store. As he said many times, his most fortunate circumstance occurred in 1946 when he was introduced to his future wife, Dorothy Childers, by a mutual friend. They married September 29, 1947. He remained with Stromberg's for over thirty years where he retired as vice-president of the corporation. He was elected president of the Winrock Merchant's Association several times and was also on the board of directors of the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and Better Business Bureau and was a member of the 20/30 Club. He gave many of Albuquerque's current business leaders their first jobs and instilled in them the work ethic that had served him so well. While his tenure at Stromberg's allowed him to indulge his passion for the retail business and fine men's clothing, he was also equally passionate about American luxury automobiles. His close friends will truly understand the following line; He has owned over 75 cars and there was never a speck of dust on any of them. Through Stromberg's, his love of cars and his gregarious nature, he developed literally hundreds of friends, every one of whom would agree that he was genuinely thoughtful and caring and a man of unrivaled honesty, integrity, gener osity and humor. He will be sorely missed by all. He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Dorothy, two sons, John and Jeffrey, and two granddaughters, Lindsey and Jamie Cline, all residents of Albuquerque. A Memorial Rosary will be recited Thursday, April 1, 2004, 5:00 p.m., at French Mortuary, Lomas Blvd. Chapel, 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE, with the Marianites reciting. A Memorial Mass will be celebrated Friday, April 2, 2004, 8:30 a.m., at Our Lady of the Annunciation Catholic Church, Claremont and Vermont St. NE, with Father Ronald Bruckner, Celebrant. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Lovelace Hospice, 5403 Gibson Blvd. SE, Albuquerque, NM 87108 or Casa Angelica 5629 Isleta Blvd SW, Albuquerque, NM 87105. French Mortuary 10500 Lomas Blvd. NE 275-3500
