Obituary of Dolores Santistevan Lopez




Dolores “Angie” Santistevan Lopez went home to be with Jesus, on January 3, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer. But through it all, she claimed the promise of 2 Corinthians 5:8.


She was born on October 10, 1950 in Española, to Arquin and Rita Martinez, and was married to Norbert Lopez for almost 26 years until his passing in 2013. She is preceded in death by her parents, brother Martin, and sister Judy. She is survived by daughter Denise (David) Whipple, daughter Deanna (Leonard) Zamora, son Dominic (Sandra) Santistevan; grandchildren: DJ, Brandon, Destini, Kamree, Paige, Leonard, Dakota, and Nicole; great-grandchildren: Lily, Emily, Matthew, Micah, Nikolas, Luka, Eric, Jewelee, Violet.


Angie retired from Intel and was active in the American Legion Auxiliary and Moose Lodge. She was part of the ALA for 30 years and held many different posts at the unit level, including president. She was serving as the department chaplain at the time of her passing. She had many friends, and people loved talking to her. She also enjoyed dancing, shopping, and keeping fit.


A celebration of life will be held on February 17 at 11:00 a.m. at the American Legion Post 69, 9000 Fourth St. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87114. In lieu of flowers the family invites donations in Angie’s name to a charity supporting veterans.
