Betty Lou Bojorquez
September 5, 1926  -  September 8, 2017


On September 8, 2017, Betty Bojorquez recently passed into the hands of her Lord in Roswell. Betty was born in Abilene, Texas on September 5, 1926. She was married to Jacob (Jay) T. Bojorquez until his death in 2015. Betty and Jay lived in Roswell during the Seventies, and were residents of Temple, Texas in recent years. Her children are Carolyn St. Clare of Grass Valley, CA; Brenda (Charles) Palmer of Granbury, TX; Valarie (Ben) Thomas of Roswell, NM; Rebeka (Don) Shipley of Sherman, TX; Kathy King-Cooper of Fort Worth, TX; Alan Bojorquez
and Sheila Lehmann of Austin, TX and Yvette (David) Flores of Corpus Christi, TX. She was blessed with 16 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren!

Betty had been living in Roswell for the past year, and was enjoying attending the First United Methodist Church. She enjoyed reading and coloring books, but loved to play dominoes, where she took particular pleasure in beating her son-in-law Ben! She was very fond of her friend and caregiver Rose Holguin.

A private memorial ceremony for Betty is being planned for the near future.

Those wishing to make a donation honoring Betty's life are encouraged to make a donation to the Hillsboro Historical Society, PO Box 461, Hillsboro, NM 88042, for the maintenance of the Black Range Museum. The Black Range is a beautiful mountain range in New Mexico that was dear to Betty and Jay.
