Amy D. Ortiz, began her journey on this earth 33 years ago, on January 13th, 1985. She entered her eternal home on Thursday, August 9, 2018. She will be greeted in the glorious eternity by many of her relatives and friends including her paternal grandfather, Frank Ortiz Sr.; aunts, Marcie Alba and Beltha Giron; brother-in-law, Mark Sanchez and her nino, George Martinez. Left to continue her legacy and to keep her memory alive are her parents, Frank and Lourdes Ortiz; her big brother Francisco Ortiz (Lucy) and her big sissy Joy Sanchez; her God-daughter, Autumn Sanchez; her nephew, Lucas Sanchez; her best friend, Peter Casados; compadre, Peter Alba; maternal grandmother, Juanita Martinez; paternal grandmother Ella Ortiz and many other relatives and friends. Amy was also a fabulous mother to her fur babies, Coon-Bear, Pancho and Lupita. There are truly no words that are vibrant and wonderful enough to describe Amy’s beautiful soul, her personality or wit. She left her mark in her own special and humorous way in the lives and hearts she touched, in the things she did and in everything and everyone left in the wake of her footstep. Amy was the director of the Northern New Mexico College Library and gave her heart and soul to her work, co-workers and students. Amy loved her “Do-it Yourself” projects, gardening and continuity of always learning something new. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, August 21, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at the Northern New Mexico College in the Arts Center. The family of Amy D. Ortiz has entrusted the care of their loved one to the DeVargas Funeral Home & Crematory of the Española Valley.
