Nora "Navorcita" Tenorio

September 22, 1935 — June 19, 2022

Did you know that there really is a heaven? It's a place where we are at one with God our Heavenly Father.

Beloved child of God, sister, wife, mom, grandma, Nana, and friend.  Nora (Navorcita) Tenorio, 86, of Albuquerque, NM, passed away peacefully on June 19, 2022. Nora is preceded in death by her parents, Salomon and Fedelina Garcia, her siblings Rose, Ernestine, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews and nieces, before departing to meet our Heavenly Father.


 Born in La Cienega and raised in Willard, NM, to a large family. Her soul will continue living on through her adoring family and friends. Nora was a caring and lovable woman who, throughout her lifetime, devoted herself to her religion, the Virgin Mother and people around her. She would always look at the brighter things in life and never had a bad thing to say.

She was a loving, caring and motivated woman, always giving her time to others while blessing them, and she continued that into her motherhood, a caregiver and a foster mom to others. She remained a faithful Christian her entire life, and made a family out of her church group and extended group of friends.

Nora married Ricardo, August 1955 and started a beautiful family. Nora will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 67 years Ricardo: her children, David (Ramona), Dennis (Cindy), Loretta (Ken), James, and Patrick (Sherrie): grandchildren, Eugene (Jazmine), Marissa (Mike), Victoria (Tommy), Mechelle (Cade), Nathan (Angela), Jesse (Ezzy), Bryan and Kevin, followed by her great grandchildren, Reannen, Zariah, Sienna, Jorell, Emily, Yelena, Jalysa, Khaleesi, Olivia, Dylan, Wyatt and Ryder who all adored her with all their hearts. She is also survived by her sibilings, Priscilla, Mickey, Gloria, Ramona, Lorella, Chris, Joe, Herminio, and their spouses. 


She will be missed by all her family members, friends and special friends.

Service will be held on July 12 at 9:30am at Holy Ghost Catholic Church at 927 Arizona Street SE, Albuquerque, NM, starting with a Rosary and Mass followed by a burial at a later date. A Celebration of Life will be held following services.


Having somewhere to go IS HOME (Heaven).

Having Someone to Love is FAMILY (Friends).

Having to Serve God & his mother Mary (Virgin Mother).


Having ALL three is a Blessing and Honor.
