Maria de Jesus Roybal, Age :87

May 05,1932---Mar 06,2020


Maria de Jesus “Susie” Roybal, born on May 5, 1932, could find little

bits of treasure in life no matter where she went. She saw potential in

things that others could have easily overlooked. To her, no object was

ordinary; each object carried a little bit of magic. On Friday, March 6,

2020, Susie unexpectedly left this earthly world to enter into eternal life.

Her parting gift was to remind her loved ones that no matter how big or

small, treasure could be found in the most ordinary of places.

Susie was known for her great sense of humor, generosity, perseverance

and amazing energy. She loved her family, pet(s), planting fruit trees

and flowers, collecting rocks, nature walks, and cooking. Her signature

recipes were her homemade capulìn jelly, tortillas and natillas. We’re

grateful she took the time to teach us how to make them so we can

continue to build upon and share our heritage. Susie grew up in La

Joya, NM and enjoyed outside activities such as fishing, camping, and

planting gardens every spring. Her love of nature carries on through her

children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Susie is survived by her husband, of sixty-eight years, Guillermo

(Willie) Roybal and Children: Lupita Simpson (Ivan), Victor Roybal

(Patsy), Geraldine Vigil (Rubel), Tacho Roybal (Flora), Fernando

Roybal (Tracy), Dennis Roybal, and beloved daughter Amanda Roybal.

Susie leaves behind numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren,

nieces, nephews, and friends. Although, she will be greatly missed we

find solitude in knowing our family’s strength has emerged from hers

and will continue to carry on for generations to come.

Services will take place Friday, March 13, 2020 at St. Anthony

Catholic Church in Pecos located at #11 St. Anthony's Loop, Pecos,

NM. The rosary will be at 10:00 a.m. with Mass following at 11:00
