Marcia Alicia (Lisa) Aragon, 61, went to meet her Lord on Sunday, April 26, 2020.
She was loved and lovely and will be remembered fondly by all who knew her.
She is survived by her Mother Jean, Sister Alison, Brothers John (Rocky), Joel Aragon with his wife Cathy.
Her father, Dr. John A. Aragon preceded her in death.
Her relatives include loving Aunts Marcia Estrada, Patricia Blackwell and husband James, an Uncle Charles V. Aragon, along with a Niece Andrea and her children, a nephew Marcello Aragon, and many cousins and extended family members, too.
Lisa was born in Santa Fe, NM on November 11, 1957. She graduated from Robertson High School in Las Vegas, NM. She lived in Albuquerque and spent several years in Ecuador. Although Lisa had a developmental disability, she retained great intellectual abilities. She was an avid reader. For many years, her favorite bedside reading was The Physicians’ Desk Reference as she had an obsession with all things pharmaceutical. Lisa’s entrepreneurial vision was vast. She might have been a billionaire if not for disability. She once asked to be taken to a library or bookstore so she could look up how to build an airliner, with the goal of founding her own airline, “Lizzy Air”. She said the planes would be painted purple. Some of her ambitions exhibited definite criminal tendencies. She once asked her sister to help her smuggle poppy seeds from Honduras so she could make heroin at home. Watch out El Chapo! Lisa was a fine painter. Her many works were joyful, abstract, and vividly colored compositions. She leaves many artworks behind. She loved cats. Her favorite reading before she passed was The Cat Encyclopedia.
May she be reunited with her father, John, her sister-in-law, Annette and with the many cherished cat and dog pets that proceeded her.
Lisa always had a song in her heart, a famous quote at the ready, and a smile for everyone she encountered.
Lisa will be laid to rest at Mount Calvary Cemetery.
A celebration of her life will be held when restrictions are lifted.
