Yvonne Anaya

With a heavy heart, we announce, our beloved mom, grandma, great grandma, sister and friend, Yvonne Anaya passed away on November 11, 2023 peacefully at her home in Socorro.

Yvonne will be remembered for not only making the best donuts, cakes and pastries working at SuperMart for over 30 years, but also for being a kind, generous person that so many in the community can attest to. She was never too busy to stop and talk to family, friends and strangers. Her door was always open. Yvonne was a devout Catholic. She looked forward to gathering with friends for her weekly rosaries. She had a special devotion to pray for those with cancer, especially children. Every Memorial Day , she would make centerpieces and flowers for the children's section at the cemetery.
