Yolanda Baca 
December 6, 1960 - May 18, 2022  

“I'm a picker, I'm a grinner, I'm a lover, and I'm a sinner, I play my music in the sun. I'm a joker, I'm a smoker, I'm a midnight toker, I sure don't want to hurt no one.” Steve Miller Band, “The Joker” (1973). 

Yolanda Baca, 61, Native of Santa Fe, New Mexico went to be in the Loving Arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on May 18th surrounded by her loved ones. Yolanda was preceded in death by her Mother Mary Francis Archuleta Baca, Father Julian Baca, and her younger brother Adolph (AJ) Baca.
