Annie Montano 7/27/1951 - 9/8/2020
Annie Montano of Albuquerque, NM , went to be with her blessed Mother and Savior on September 8th 2020. Annie is survived by her husband of 48 years, Gilbert Montano. Annie was a devoted mother of Victoria Lies (husband Joshua) of Albuquerque NM, Eusebio Montano (wife Tammy) of Santa Fe NM, Estevan Montano (partner Gary) of Chicago IL, and Venessa Randolph (husband Brandon) of Gloucester, VA. She is survived by her six cherished grandchildren Emilio Montano, Jocelyn Montano, Chris Montano, Aviana Lies, Alexander Randolph, Penelope Randolph and many dear nieces and nephews. Annie is a dear sister of the late Alfredo Rivera, the late Lourdes Sanchez, Santiago Rivera, Alejandro Rivera, Carmen Aragon, Jorge Rivera and Veronica Gonzales.
Annie grew up in Tucumcari, NM and moved to Albuquerque when she was 14 years old. She graduated from Albuquerque High School in 1970. She genuinely treasured her family, friends, she delighted in cooking and feeding company, and she had a deep tenderness towards animals, babies and children. She loved Bingo, the casino, coffee, doughnuts, learning about history, watching Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and other game shows. She also enjoyed a card game called International Rummy. Annie faithfully prayed to Jesus Christ and to our Blessed Mother Mary.
Annie retired from Ethicon Johnson & Johnson after 20 years of service. She relished in her 10 years of retirement.
Annie was like the morning and setting sun, welcoming light, bright, warmth, love and shine; calm, comforting, wiser than the day before and she was home. She was a terrific conversationalist she enjoyed learning about other people and chatting about the people she loved. Whenever she spoke or sang, she was the loudest among others. She had a wonderful sense of humor and her laughter was contagious. She savored and shined being among the people she loved. We love you so much our sunshine, may you rest in peace with our Lord and our Blessed Mother.
A Visitation will be held on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 5:30-6:00 pm with a Rosary to be recited at 6:00 pm at Garcia Mortuary~Chapel of Angels, 624 8th Street SW.
