Frances Mary Romero

Our dearly beloved Frances Mary Romero, 92, gained her angel wings and was reunited with the love of her life and daughter on April 21, 2022. She made her grand entrance into the world on September 25, 1929 in San Luis, Colorado. She was the daughter of Adrian Valdez and Manuelita Sanchez Valdez. Frances was united in marriage to Delbert "Sonny" Romero  on January 21, 1951. They shared 54 amazing, happy and loving years together.  From their union they had four children. Two of whom went to Mortuary School in San Francisco and returned to start Romero Funeral Homes Inc., one served in the Army during Vietnam and later became a master embalmer and helped his brothers at the funeral home and their only daughter became a beautician. She owned and operated All Hair Care until her passing. Frances devoted her life caring for her family and serving the Lord. She was devoted to her faith and her love for God. She not only raised four wonderful children of her own but also played  an immeasurable part in helping raise many of her grandchildren.  Frances was known for her kind, compassionate and loving nature. She was also an amazing cook. Her spaghetti, tortillas, tamales and chili were treasured by her family.  Frances was one of the most dedicated and exceptional wife, mother, grandmother, great , great-great-grandmother and friend that we could ask for.  She was selfless with her time and made sure to always be the first to help anyone in need. She would volunteer at the River of Life Church as well as the Templo Cristiano in Capulin alongside the Late Reverend Gil Lucero and his wife Della. Frances made many friends in the community through her church activities. Frances was a prayer warrior and her prayers are what kept her family safe and on the right track throughout the years. She is irreplaceable and left big shoes for her family to fill, but through the grace of God we will all do our best to make out Sweet Frances proud. She was so dearly loved and will be truly missed.
