Loyola (a.k.a Aunt Loggie, Grandma Bingo, Bucky) was born on June 5, 1941 in El Guache, NM. She was a Madrina to many, extending her love and guidance. Loyola had a deep passion for camping and music, often lighting up gatherings with her love for singing and dancing. She was always the life of the party and enjoyed the annual Valdez/Moya family reunions. Loyola’s dedication as a mother was unwavering; her children and grandchildren held a special place in her heart. Her presence touched the hearts of all who knew her and her vibrant spirit will be deeply missed.
