ABUNDIA LIBREROS CASTRO MONTERO Beloved Wife of Crescencio P. “Mike” Montero Born in Paso de Ovejas, Veracruz, Mexico Parents: Rosario Libreros Conde (father), Cecelia Castro Rodriguez (mother) Abundia was our beloved and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother who emigrated with her husband Crescencio “Mike” Montero from Veracruz, Mexico to Roswell, New Mexico in the early 1950s to start their family and provide the best opportunities for them as possible. Early on, she worked in the cotton fields with her husband to help support their growing family but was mostly a stay-at-home mom who always enjoyed her children and grandchildren. Despite living in the USA, she always remembered her roots and family (particularly her first-born son, father, sisters and brother) in Veracruz and visited whenever possible. She is well known for saying phrases such as “Si se puede”; “Alli esta el detalle”; Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres”; “Mis munequitos or munequitas” and especially “Please? Or Fleas?!?”. She loved gardening, playing pranks, was proud of her ability to drive standard and of her flawless 55-year driving record, and always enjoyed playing with her grandkids. Once she grabbed one of them, she never wanted to let them go. She was particularly proud for completing her Adult Basic Education and obtaining her US Citizenship. She attended St. John’s Catholic Church until her health wouldn’t allow her to attend. She always enjoyed watching her favorite actor Pedro Infante and any Cantinflas movie. She always had a laugh or joke for friends and family and will be dearly missed. Children: Julio Palmeros Libreros (Lucia), Step-daughter Guillermina Montero, Angelina M.
