Obituary for Carolina Cardenas Barela


On March 26, 2021 Mom made her trip to Heaven to be with her
mom and dad, Agustina and Benito Cardenas, her husband
Patrico Barela, her pet Lacy and many brothers and sisters.
She leaves behind her children Ernie(Adela), Rose,
Joanne(Albert), Louie, Steve(Maria), Willie(Emily) Isaac,
Sylvia(Mark), Orlando(Mary), Mike, Raymond, Tommy(Jackie),
her sister Ruby, many Grand children and Great Grand
children, and Great Great Grand children and her dog Coco.
Mom was born August 16, 1927 and raised in Taos, in her heart
she is back in Taos.
She loved growing up in Taos from going trick or treating and
exchanging food and working with the vecinos and going to
dances and getting in trouble with her sisters. She enjoyed
sewing, making blankets and loved to cook for her family when
they came to visit.
She started her family in New Mexico and Married Patricio
Barela, they moved to Minturn Colorado where she raised her
children with lots of love and great cooking.
Even when she camped she made a feast out in the woods,
fried chicken and tortillas was a norm on “cook-out” trips.
She was a feisty lady and I am sure she is taking lots of attitude
to heaven with her.
She will be missed by all.
