Patricia Ann Carriaga (also known as Pat, Grandma T, and Ticia) went to heaven to be with our Lord and her husband Silas Carriaga on Tuesday June 5, 2018.

She was born in Salida, Colorado on October 9, 1945 to parents Anthony and Cleo Lucero. She was one of nine children.

Pat will be remembered for her devotion to the Lord and the immense love she possessed for her family.

Pat filled the room with life and laughter every place she went. Strong and independent, she always ensured her family was taken care of. She put the needs of others before her own. She approached every situation with caring and kindness. You could always count on her smile to provide support and encouragement during difficult times.  She fed the birds and took care of homeless dogs in need. She took great pride and care in being a dog-mom.

Pat is survived by four children, Patricia Ketcham, Anthony Carriaga, John Carriaga, Stephanie Bryant; five grandchildren, Nicole Ketcham, Jared and Isaiah Carriaga, Kate and Mary Bryant; her two dogs (her "babies") Osita and Oso; and a many family and friends that all loved her.

A life celebration will be held on Saturday June 16, 2018, 10:00 am at El Buen Samaritano Methodist Church, 700 Granite Ave NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102 (on southwest corner of 7th and granite).

We love you and will miss you forever Grandma T!
