Obituary for Mary Lillian Folks

Mary Lillian  Folks
Mary Lillian Folks passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on June 25. Lillian was born to Edward Folks and Gertrude Garcia in Tucumcari, NM. She was preceded in death by her parents and brother Leonard P. Folks of Rock Springs, WY. She is survived by brother James D. Folks of San Antonio, TX; children Yvonne Garcia (Randy), Carla Lopez (Michael), and Edward Lopez (Debbie); grandchildren Mark Garcia, Lauren Garcia, Rachel Lopez (Jeff), Miquela Vigil (Alauddin), and Cristina Vigil; nieces and nephew Susan Larroquette, Linda Phillips, Terrie Layos, Patricia Musich and Edward Folks.

Lillian was forever young-at-heart, with a twinkle in her eye and a quick retort for everything. She was strong, beautiful and had an elegant sense about her. She had a beautiful singing voice, she was a natural on percussion, and she was a great dancer. Her family will miss her feistiness, her sense of adventure, and her willingness to always get up and go.

Lillian’s remains have been cremated, and a private service has taken place. Donations in Lillian’s name can be made to St. Elizabeth’s Shelter, 804 Alarid St., Santa Fe, 87505.
