She was a strong spirit that left us way too soon. Emiliana was a strong headed girl who loved her family and friends and always held them close to her heart. She loved her man James and their six pitbull babies with everything. She loved dubstep, dancing, muxing music, fashion design, the mountains, concerts and experiencing new and exciting things in life, she also loved annoying her big brothers and would do so whenever she go the chance.

Her big brown eyes and amazing, infectious laugh will remain with us forever. She is survived by her Mon, Dede Archuleta, her Father, Darrell Archuleta, Brothers Joey Chavez and Johnny Beard, Auntie Sue Martinez as well as many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by many family members including grandmothers Mary Lou Beard and Tillie Archuleta, cousin and Godmother Shawnase Martinez, cousin Moses Archuleta, Uncle Mike Beard, Aunt Priscilla Montoya and others too numerous to mention but ot forgotten.
