Madeline La Febre, age 97, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 15, 2023 surrounded by her loving family.

A devoted mother and homemaker, Madeline spent her free-time running a small seamstress business. A woman of deep faith, Madeline was an active member of Sangre de Cristo Catholic Church in Albuquerque and imparted that faith in her children.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ted La Febre, son Robert, great grandson Michael Giron and parents Alfred T. and Beatrice Martinez. She's survived by her daughters Barbara Fierro, Lisa Giron (Glenn) and Theresa Nicklay (Dennis).

The family would like to thank the staff of Hospice de la Luz, especially Hillary Malu, Cheyanna Highelk and Dr. Joy Lovette, for their exceptional care, as well as Madeline's loving caregiver and friend Gertrude Tafoya.
