"Joan Blodgett Obituary by: Greg Blodgett 2/05/2024 “Long time Roswell resident was active in the community and a recognized leader” Joan Blodgett could be seen darting around town in her red Mustang convertible going from work at Tobosa to teaching water aerobics at the Racquet Club. She served as a house mother at Reflections and Recovery Ministry Women’s Refuge, all while completing her Bachelor’s degree at night from New Mexico Highlands University in 2008. Blodgett participated in breakfast meetings for Keep Roswell Beautiful and served as the chairman of Altrusa Club’s community service for Salvation Army food distribution, literacy, and breast cancer awareness. She always said that no one should complain of boredom in Roswell because there was always something to do. When asked, her friend Linda Madrid listed at least 24 volunteer activities in which Blodgett was involved. She was a member of the Altrusa Club for three decades where she acted twice as President and was nominated for the Governor’s Award. She volunteered at the Historical Society of Southeast NM and was on the Welcome Ministry at Christ’s Church. Blodgett made lifelong friends in the Roswell Runners Club where she liked to run, hike, and kayak and participated in several Turtle Marathons. She loved the Roswell Symphony and went to dinner every Saturday with her friends in the “Fine Ladies Dining” group. She was named the Sertoma Club Person of the Year and received the \u0026quot;Outstanding Leader Award” from Leadership Roswell Alumni Association in 2013. She received the United Way Community Service Award in 2022. On Sunday, September 7, 2014, the Roswell Daily Record Sunday Spotlight called Blodgett the “Energizer Bunny.” She joked to not be fooled by the gray hair; she was only 37 (actually 73 at the time). Blodgett attributed her energy to her happy life, along with blessings from God and a healthy sense of humor. “You have to have a sense of humor, and for me, I just have to have friends. My friends are my family, and they keep me going.” Laughter, she said, is the best medicine. “You have to look for the bright spot.” Linda Madrid added, “You could not get her to say a bad word about anybody – ever.” She was always kind and caring and positive. Blodgett was quite a role model getting her bachelor’s degree late in life and often encouraged the young people who she met to go to college. As a breast cancer survivor, she supported and offered encouragement to anyone who had a diagnosis of cancer. Her strong faith bore witness through her generous heart in service to others, daily Bible study, and the dozens of testimonials she received from her community. Joan was born and raised in Michigan where she raised her own family and then moved to Roswell in 1982. She joined Tobosa Developmental Services as an Executive Secretary and later moved up to Office Manager where she stayed for 31 years before retiring in 2013. She was then asked to come back on a part-time basis, which she did and never left. She liked to say that she kept working, so she would have money to travel. Blodgett made two trips to the United Kingdom and three trips to Israel. She attended her 60th high school reunion in Michigan, vacationed with her daughter and daughter-in-law in Maine, and celebrated the holidays in Maryland with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchild. Joan Blodgett died on January 19, 2024, of natural causes after a brief illness. She is pre-deceased by ex-husband William Blodgett and her brother David Harris. She is survived by daughter Dina Blodgett and daughter-in-law Sandra Smith, son Greg Blodgett and daughter-in-law Kim Blodgett, grandchildren: Matt Blodgett, JT Blodgett and fiancé Sarah Hasse, Meghan Blodgett Espina, her husband Roberto Espina, and their son Gabriel. A memorial service will be held on Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. at Christ’s Church in Roswell. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Altrusa Club of Roswell or Christ’s Church in Joan Blodgett’s name."

"Ludivina Rodriguez (Memo) August 31, 1934-January 28, 2024 Our beloved Ludivina Rodriguez passed away January 28th, 2024. She was preceded in death by her son Cesar Rodriguez, her parents, her siblings Amparo Luna, Socorro Gomez, Manuela Matta, Ageda Baeza, Angela Bustamante, Matias Saenz, Salvador Saenz, and Abel Saenz. She is survived by her deeply loving Husband of 67 years, Fernando Rodriguez. Their children Leticia Kuykendall and Fernando Rodriguez Jr. Her grandchildren Kandee Hymer (Bob Hymer), Tamara Kuykendall (Westley McArdle), Krista Hernandez (Justin Hernandez), Robert Mason, Josh Dominguez (Nadine Dominguez), Eric Sanchez (Brandy Knight). Her Great Grandkids Destynie Hymer, Zoi Hymer, Kassidy Hymer, Clayton McArdle, Emilee McArdle, Gia McArdle, Taber Thomas, Kayd Kuykendall, Lucy Castillo, Gage Kuykendall, Lylah Hernandez, Kai Hernandez, Kamryn Dominguez, Skyler Mason, Nikolai Mason, Alec Knight, Audi Sanchez, Penelope Sanchez, and Eric (Jr.) Sanchez. She has one living sister, Ana Stewart, and many friends who she grew to love and consider as family. Ludivina was widely known for her generous soul and her warm cooked food. Her grandkids often bragged, “Memo’s burritos are different, they are the best.” She never let anyone leave her house without a happy and filled stomach, and her friends and family will miss her homemade “Asaderos.” She bared the greenest of thumbs. Her yard was always sprouting in vibrant colors where she had planted and nourished beautiful flowers into life. They sometimes would be planted so sporadically that you had to watch your step while walking through the yard. You could often find her bent over taking turns talking and singing with her birds. Ludi’s sense of humor was one of her most attractive features. She possessed the natural ability to turn awkward situations into giggles and hard laughs. She put life and love into everything she encountered. You were in good hands if you were in her hands. Her last years were difficult for her, but she was so blessed to have her daughter, son, and husband in her corner attempting to care for her the way she had cared for everyone else up until then. Ludivina’s graveside services will be February 3rd, 2024, at the Hagerman Cemetery at 10:00 AM."

Roswell, NM

"Moises Servantez, 63, passed away on Friday, January 26, 2024. Please take a moment to share a kind thought or memory with Moises’ family at www.andersonbethany.com. A viewing will be held at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home and Crematory on Tuesday, February 6, 2024, from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM, with a Memorial Service to begin at 6:00 PM. On February 17, 1963, Moises was born to Pedro and Petra Servantez in Roswell, NM. In 1978 he met his life partner, special friend, and mother of his children, Alice, his “BAE-BBA” as he would say. For many years Moises worked as his own boss doing construction, which is something he was best at. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, and fixing things around the house. Moises loved music and would “jam out” to pink Floyd and Bob Marley, who were some of his favorite artists. He was a jack of all trades, there was nothing that stopped him not even his sickness. He also enjoyed hanging with his brothers and all his sisters, who he was very close with. He was also a member of Iglesia Bautista Hispana. Moises, as (Tyler Wood) would say, was an early riser always on timer. He was a back breaker, a giver not a taker, a strong steady leader, a firm hand shaker, tough as steal, and had heart of gold. We will forever keep his memories alive. Those left to eternally treasure and cherish memories are his first son, his “Spikey” Joseph Servantez; only daughter, his “Monkey” Laura Servantez and her wife Lisa; his baby boy, “Pelon” Christopher Servantez; his wife, Crystal; eight grandchildren: Christopher, Anty, Angel, Aaliyah, Annizette, Andres, Riannon, Lilly, Eliseo, and baby Christopher; two great-grandbabies: Iemias and Baby Avery on the way. Those to proceed him in death are his parents: Pedro and Petra Servantez; brothers: Pete and Eddie; and sister, Juanita. Blessed to be chosen as honorary pallbearers are his children Joseph, Laura, and Christopher. Honored to serve as pallbearers are all his grandchildren and great-grandbabies. The family of Moises would like to thank everyone for all their kindness and support in this difficult time. Moises’ tribute was lovingly written by his family."
