Adelaida (Ida) Perea, beloved Mom and Grandma, passed away peacefully at home on May 13, 2021, just short of her 95th birthday. Ida was born in Jarales, New Mexico and was a resident of Albuquerque.
Our matriarch, Mom was a strong, determined and fiercely independent woman who inspired us to be the same. She attended church faithfully, enjoyed water aerobics, bowling, reading, and loved socializing. But what she loved most of all was her family. We will never forget that Mom put family first. We love her and will miss her every day.
She is survived by her daughters Dorothy Velasquez (Victor), Gerri Chavez, Evangeline Sedillo (Larry), Debbie Silva, and Angela Campos (Al); 18 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren, and 8 great-great grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Theresa Garcia (Gus), sister-in-law Sally Hoffman (Dave), and an extended family. Ida was preceded in death by her husband Ted, daughter Annabelle, son Teddy, parents Manuel and Delfinia Romero, and 7 siblings.
A funeral Mass will be held Wednesday, May 26, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at St Edwin Catholic Church, reception immediately after at St. Edwin Parish Hall, then internment at Santa Fe National Cemetery at 3:00 p.m. Urn bearers will be granddaughters Irene, Patricia, Rosella, Lea, and Celeste. Honorary urn bearers will be grandsons Andrew, Lanny, Randy, Trinidad, David, Joe, Jason, Paul, and Marty.
