On May 23, 1933, Gregorita was born in Corona, New Mexico, to Rosendo Chavez and Anita Sena. Prior to retirement, she worked as a waitress, meat cutter and at Glovers. Gregorita was a great joy to her family, she brought happiness and laughter to all who knew her. She had a childlike heart and was very mischievous. Gregorita loved family time, board games, movies, singing and dancing. Her favorite song was “De Colores.”

Gregorita was a devout Catholic and took pride in her many religious artifacts. They brought her much joy and comfort as she prayed the rosary every morning to the Virgin de Guadalupe, praying for loved ones and the peace of the world. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the apple of her eye, she sparkled when she was around them.

SURVIVORS: Gregorita is survived by her sisters: Rose Tejan, Mary Chaves, and Kathy Rivera; children: William (Billy) Schwartz, Diane Moore, Brenda Chavez, Bernadette Schwartz and Michael Schwartz; thirteen grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nephews and nieces who adored her.

Broken Chain

Little did we know that morning
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone;
for part of us went with you,
the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide;
and though we cannot see you,
you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same;
but as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.
