Obituary: Yosina Archuleta July 11, 2022


Yosina Archuleta, a lifelong resident of Los Alamos, passed away peacefully July 11, at the age of 99 after a brief illness. 

She was a loving mother and homemaker. She was a happy-go-lucky lady with a very optimistic outlook on life. She loved gardening, dancing, visiting with her grand-kids, and was a wonderful caregiver for her son James.

Yosina was proceeded in death by her loving husband Juan Archuleta, her son Jerry Archuleta, and her daughter Lori Fisher. She is survived by her son James Archuleta of Albuquerque, her son John Archuleta (Debra) of White Rock, her daughter Sally Preston (Dean) of White Rock, grandsons Daniel Preston (Annette) and Kory Archuleta, a granddaughter Misha Peterson (Kris), and nine great grandchildren – Athena, Ayva, Annaka, Kash, Kiaus, Adessa, Kyro, Tanner and Kyla – whom she loved dearly.

Yosina made an impression on everyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. She will be greatly missed by many and will always be this family’s treasure.
