Belia C. Trujillo, 82, of Phoenix, AZ and formerly of Socorro, NM died peacefully in her home on March 26, 2015. Belia C. Trujillo was born on April 1, 1932 in Polvedera, NM to Anita (Ruiz) Chavez and Geronimo Chavez. She is preceded in death by her mom and dad, brothers Jimmy, Aristeo, Richard and Pedro Chavez. Loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Sister and Friend, is survived by her husband Lucas A. Trujillo of Phoenix, AZ, Lou Trujillo (Laura) of Goodyear, AZ., Lee Trujillo (Chuck Williams) of Leadville, CO., Dorothy Trujillo (Kristen Alley) of Mesa, AZ., and Bernadette Trujillo Fish (Mike) of Pinetop-Lakeside, AZ., Grandchildren Bryan Trujillo (Marie) of Goodyear, AZ, Salena Meyer Loredo (Rome) of Tucson, AZ., and Alejandro Sanchez of Phoenix, AZ., and three great grandchildren, Nicholas, Alyssa and Justin Trujillo, all of Goodyear, AZ., two brothers Eddie Chavez, Louie Chavez of Albuquerque, NM, five sisters, Andrea (Chavez) Barreras, Priscilla (Chavez) Edwards, Dorothy (Chavez) Dupree and Rosie Chavez all of Albuquerque, NM., and Rachel (Chavez) Hutchinson of Los Lunas, NM., and many nieces and nephews. Our mom grew up on a farm in a small town in central New Mexico called Polvedera in a home filled with 12 siblings. All our lives we enjoyed hearing stories of her adventures growing up on the farm and how hard they had to work each day. Our mom was a strong and active woman who as an adult enjoyed playing softball and volleyball in the local Socorro, New Mexico Women's leagues. She taught us how to always play to win, but play fair. She and our father enjoyed traveling, dancing and visiting with friends. Our mother was an exceptional cook who never allowed anyone to leave her house hungry. Mom was a kind and gentle woman who loved her family unconditionally. She will be greatly missed, but we know we will see her again...
