Throughout Julia Morfin’s life she was a dedicated mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. At a young age she met her forever husband Sergio Morfin and from that moment on they were inseparable. Together they built a beautiful home hand in hand, brick by brick which they then filled with love and six beautiful children. Julia lived a full and busy life that consisted of raising her children, ranching, gardening, running a convenience store in Gallina, NM, and later helped raise some of her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by many and will be in our hearts forever.
