Onecima "Emma" Casaus, age 95, beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, joined her husband, parents, and two of her siblings in heaven on Saturday, May 5, 2018. She was born on June 15, 1922 and raised in Cuba, NM. Emma will be lovingly remembered for her gardening, quilting and always offering a cup of coffee and something to eat. Emma was a devoted Catholic and was rarely seen without her Rosary in her hand. Emma is an enormous loss for our family, but a tremendous gain for heaven.
Emma is survived by a sister, Isabel Roche; her loving children, Pete and Florence; four grandchildren; eleven great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank all those who helped with Emma's care.
