Lillie Romero, age 78, a resident of Albuquerque’s South Valley was born April 13, 1941 and passed away Sunday, November 24 surrounded by many family members. Lillie was a life-long member of The Church of Ascension Catholic Church, the Santa Rita followers and a devote follower of Saint Therese of the Little Flower. Lillie deeply loved her family and embraced life. She loved music, listening or singing and she loved to Dance.

She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She will forever be in our hearts. Lillie is preceded in death by her mother, Minnie Ortiz and father, Damacio Maldonado, her three sisters, Flora, Cora and Angela and one son, Daniel Romero.
