Rosemary Agorichas, peacefully passed away at the age of 96, at home in the company of her immediate family on Oct. 16, 2023.
She is survived by three children, Duane Thomas, Naomi Bozovsky and special caretakers and supporters, Melvin and Toni Monroe (daughter). Also surviving is special daughter, Barbara Bayes; and niece, Cheryl Bartholomew.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Christopher Agorichas; son, John Thomas Jr.; and her parents, sister, brother, nieces and nephews.
Rosemary was a member of First Baptist Church of Los Chavez, where she enjoyed Bible classes and fellowship.
She was born in Michigan City, Ind., where she raised her family. She came to New Mexico in 1998. She loved the New Mexico sunshine. She volunteered at the Belen Area Food Pantry and nursing homes.
She enjoyed the senior center, where she played pinochle and taught exercise classes. Her warm smile, passion for God and life, caring heart, and sense of humor will be in our hearts forever.
Her last prayer and wish was that all her family and friends would find their way to the Lord and someday join her and loved ones in heaven for eternity.
We, the family, send special thanks to the wonderful, caring, people (family) at Nevaeh Hospice.
Services are being handled by Riverside Funeral of Los Lunas.
