Mrs. Eva C. Aragon, 85, went to be with the Lord on July 26, 2021, in Colorado Springs, after a full and blessed life. Eva Atencio was born on November 28, 1935 to Donaciano Atencio and Cliofas (Vigil) Atencio in Mora, NM. She was married to LeeRoy F. Aragon on March 8, 1953, in Fountain, CO.
She was preceded in death by her husband (LeeRoy), brother Junior, sisters Julia, Dessie, Reggie and Mary, and grandsons Frankie and Jeremy.
She is survived by her brother Andres, and sister Marcella, son Fred (wife Louise), daughter Kathy (husband Ted), daughter Shirley, daughter Carolyn, son John, 10 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, 2 great great grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Our mother was very skilled at sewing, crocheting, knitting, jewelry-making, as well as many other crafts. She was an amazing cook and loved to feed and share with everyone. She loved her gardening and camping and fishing with family. She was actively involved in the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, her Rosary prayer group, and the aquatics programs at the YMCA. She was also an avid sports fan and loved to cheer on all the Colorado teams. She provided us a solid foundation of faith, knowledge and wisdom and was a true inspiration to everyone she met. We have many cherished memories of her that we will treasure until we are with her again.
