Carmen Nolasco Obituary

Funeral services for Carmen Navarrete Gomez Nolasco will be held at 2:00 PM, on Tuesday, November 28, 2023, in the Wheeler Mortuary Chapel with Joshua Mendoza officiating. Burial will follow in the Portales Cemetery.

On November 22, 2023, Carmen Navarrete Gomez Nolasco passed away in death.  She was 88 years old.  She was born to Gerardo and Adela Navarrete on July 13, 1935 in Escobillas, Chihuahua.

In 1959, she married Liborio Gomez. She became a proud mother to 5 beloved children. Liborio and Carmen went on to have many precious grandchildren and they lived a full life with a large family. They especially enjoyed having the family over at their house.  Everyone loved lining up for Carmen’s cooking as she was known for a variety of signature dishes.  Together as a family they spent many nights on the porch – laughing, telling stories, and eating watermelon.

The greatest treasure of her life, though, was her dedication to God.  She was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1972.

After losing Liborio in death in 1996, time passed and she eventually married Flavio Nolasco in 2000.

As a faithful Christian, she enjoyed helping others to learn about the Bible.  Her family remembers her dearly for her strength, stability, work ethic, and strong faith. They look forward to seeing her again very soon.

Carmen is survived by her five children and their spouses: Natividad and Leticia Gomez, Hector and Cathi Gomez, Liborio Jr. and Phoebe Gomez, Leticia Gomez-Almughrabi and Anan, Beatrice Montanez and David; her ten grandchildren and their spouses: Nathan and Kasie Gomez, Raquel and Kelly Kragt, Josh and Daniela Mendoza, Adrian and Alexandria Gomez, Jacob Gomez, James Gomez, Zakaria Almughrabi, Yasmine Almughrabi, Aaron Montanez, Isabella Montanez; her sister, Magdalena Alvidrez; and finally, her husband, Flavio Nolasco.

She was preceded in death by: Liborio Gomez, Sr.; her siblings, Camilo Navarrete, Israel Navarrete, Jesus Jose Navarrete, Jesusita Navarrete, and Eva Navarrete.
