Deluvina “Dewey” Aragon

Deluvina “Dewey” Aragon, 83, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loved ones, on Tuesday, Oct 23rd, 2018. She was born to the late Francisco and Rosa Aragon on Nov 3rd, 1934 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Dewey is survived by her sweet dog Sasha, her daughters Esperanza Perez and Consuelo Anguiano, and son, Martin Leyva, her grandchildren, Alicia, Alix, Manuel, Daniel, and Kailani, and great-grandbabies, Caden and Ezra; also, her brother Frank Jr., her sister Estella, her niece Bernadine “Weda” Vasquez, and her many loved ones in New Mexico.

Dewey was loved and cared for by her loved ones and was never left alone. We are going to miss her feistiness, quick wit and ongoing shenanigans. It was never a dull moment to be around her. Dewey had a long history of health issue but truly showed her family the meaning of strength and resiliency.

After years of working to support her family, Dewey was medically retired but never stopped wanting to be a provider. Our mom not only raised her children, but also raised her many nieces and nephews. She then was honored by helping raise her grandchildren and later becoming a great-grandmother. She had a love of collecting elephants; and a love of embroidery, drinking diet Cokes, and sneaking sweets, all the while watching an array murder/mystery shows, as long as someone died. She had a love for Forensic Files, Law & Order and Sons of Anarchy, like mentioned, as long as someone died.

Our mom was a caring and kind individual (most of the time), caring about people and worrying about how others were. She had a love of cooking, making some of the best New Mexican dishes and chile. There is so much to be said about the matriarch, she never let us down when it came to making us laugh and smile. There are so many memories that are embedded in our minds, but most importantly, our hearts.

We love and miss you Mom, your grandbabies miss their G-Dawg, and Caden and Ezra want you to come back. We pray your journey home is a good one; that your reunited with your daughter, Rosa Margarita, and son, Adolfo Daniel, and that you are enjoying a diet coke and eating pan-dulce with Grandpa, Tio Mon, Della and the rest of your beloved family. Rest easy Dewey, you will never be forgotten, you left us with so many beautiful memories, we are honored that Creator chose you for us.
We love you.

We would like to send a special thank you to mom’s “Guarding Angel” Dr. Michael Bordofsky, her caregiver Ana Rangel, and to the staff at Visiting Nurse & Hospice who took part in her care. We honor you.

A graveside ceremony to celebrate her life will be held at Calvary Cemetery, 199 N. Hope Ave, S.B. California on Nov. 3rd 2018 at 11:00 am.
