Regina always tried to have a positive attitude. She was generous and would give, even if it was the last dollar in her wallet. She cherished her grandchildren and would do anything for them.

She was considerate and empathetic to everyone's feelings.
Regina most recently lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico with Nick Maestas, her husband of 45 years. She liked New Mexican food and gospel music. Her true passion was “horses”. She loved everything about horses just like her sisters. Regina always wanted to visit Las Vegas and travel to Paris, although she was happy wherever she was as long as her family was near. Regina liked to watch football even if she was lost trying to follow the game. Her favorite team was the Denver Broncos, because of horses. Her heart was filled with love and compassion for others. She will be greatly missed.
