Virginia “Jennie” Ann Saavedra, “Mama G”, 71, of Roswell, passed away in the comfort of her home on Sunday, the 11th of March, 2018. She was proud to be a mother to her three children: Jessica Carrillo, Carlos Cobos and Monica Saavedra. Mama G had five grandchildren: Melonie Cassandra Cobos-Monge, Carlos Cobos, Gabriel Cobos, Josiah Cobos, Skylee Ann Peerson; plus, two great-grandchildren: Eli and Ean Monge; brother, Sylvestre Saavedra & his wife, Margie Solis-Saavedra; sister, Lily Estrella & husband, Frank Estrella; and lots of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends who meant the world to her. Let’s not forget her beloved Chihuahua and faithful companion for the last seventeen years, LuLu Mia Saavedra.
Mama G was fun and was known in the neighborhood as the cool lady jamming out to oldies, rock n roll and mexican music while working in her yard. She wanted everyone to know that she lead a full, happy life. Mama G called her home the “sugar shack” and everyone was welcome. She was an amazing cook and loved to feed everyone. Mama G was a proud graduate of Roswell High School, Class of 1965. She also loved to travel, especially to visit family. One of Mama G’s favorite past times was going to the casino or staying home and watching westerns.
She will be missed by all and will leave us with this beautiful poem:

A Silent Tear

Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I’m really still there inside your mind
Don’t cry of me now I’m gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear
Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I’m in that place that’s filled with love
Known to you all, as “Heaven up-above”

-Author Unknown

Virginia’s family lovingly wrote this tribute in her honor.
