NANCY CDE BACA Nov. 10, 2016
On Thursday, November 10th, Nancy Cde Baca passed away from a short illness. She passed doing all her favorite things-eating a bowl of homemade, mashed potatoes and gravy, smoking a cigarette and having her favorite drink.
Nancy never liked telling her age, so I won’t start now.
Although Nancy had a limited education, it never stopped her from pursuing things she was interested in. She loved playing the guitar, and she performed along with a partner at the La Fonda Hotel and the Los Alamos Inn. She was a trap shooter, and also loved the sport of hunting.
Nancy was a self-taught veterinarian and was one of a few New Mexico licensed Race Horse Trainers, in a predominately male driven field. Nancy loved all animals with the exception of spiders and snakes.
Nancy was preceded in death by her parents, John and Helen Means, her son John R. Cde Baca, her daughter Kathy Ann Towzen and her childhood and best friend friend Pat. She leaves behind her loving daughter Terry Cde Baca, four sisters Ruth Ann Patterson (Kenneth) Canton, Ohio, Ina C.French (Robert), Mary Mckee-Horina and Kim King (Dan). Nancy also leaves behind two step-children, Mark and Shannon Cde Baca, four grandchildren, and several nieces, nephews, and grandnieces and grandnephews.
The family has entrusted their loving care of Nancy to Devargas Funeral Home and Crematorium.
