Born on November 5, 1934, in Madrid, New Mexico, Sophie's life was a testament to the enduring power of love and family.

Sophie's happiest moments were spent at the ranch with her beloved husband and family. When cooking breakfast, she enjoyed listening to her husband fine tune his guitar and on other days listening to him play his piano. They shared many laughs and stories under the stars.

They enjoyed being involved in the church community and would frequently travel to Glorieta, New Mexico to attend a bible study group throughout the year. On Monday nights Sophie and her husband would also volunteer to sing Spanish music at the bible study they attended in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 A devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, she embraced her purpose with a full heart, always placing her family above all else. Her home was adorned with an exquisite collection of dolls, each one cherished and cared for, much like the relationships she nurtured throughout her life. Sophie will be remembered for her tenderness, her kind spirit, and her thoughtful presence which brought comfort and joy to all who knew her. Her legacy of love and dedication to her family will continue to flourish in their hearts forever.
