Cecile Baca

August 11, 1961 — December 31, 2017

Cecile A. Baca, 56, beloved wife, daughter, mother, grandmother and friend, was called home by our heavenly father on Sunday, December 31, 2017, after a heroic thirteen year battle with breast cancer.  Never one to succumb to adversity, Cecile fought with courage and determination to beat this disease and though her fight was successful three different times the cancer returned each time with a vengeance.

Though in pain most of the time, Cecile remained a supportive, loving wife, mother and grandmother.  She led by example dealing with the cancer on her terms, never letting it interfere with her desire to be available for her family when they needed her.  Recognized for her humor, fierce intelligence, integrity, and creativity, Cecile was known as feisty soul with passion for life and a deep love for her family and friends; which resulted in unconditional support at all times. Cecile’s struggles contributed to her tenacious spirit and her passing will leave a huge hole in our hearts and our lives.

A lifelong resident of Bernalillo where Cecile was active in her community serving on the board of the Coronado Little League for eight years, later serving as the league Vice President and as President.

Cecile was a voracious reader and was known to be the keeper of miscellaneous facts that she would share at the oddest times.  She loved being outdoors and especially enjoyed fishing and camping on the San Juan River with her family and spending time at the ranch.

Cecile is preceded in death by her father Hipolito Aguilar.  She leaves behind her loving husband of 35 years, Martín Baca; her mother, Mary E. Aguilar-Lee; her sons, Manuel Baca (Lupe), Martín Baca Sr. (Barbara); and a daughter, Cristina  Thomson(Mark); grandchildren, Martín Baca Jr., Rebecca Baca, Aayden Baca, Lauren Thomson, Nathaniel Baca, Tristan Thomson and Annalicia Baca; siblings, Hipolito Aguilar (Patricia), Bernadette Wilson (Steve), Mary Rose Abousleman (Gary), Patrick Aguilar and Christopher Aguilar (Gretta); and many cousins, nephews and nieces.  Cecile will be greatly missed by her loving family and by those whose lives she touched.

Visitation will be Saturday, January 6, 2018 from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Our Lady of Sorrows Church, 301 Camino Del Pueblo, Bernalillo, NM, where a Rosary will be recited at 11:30 a.m. then followed by the Mass of Christian Burial at 12:00 p.m.  Interment will follow at the Bernalillo Catholic Cemetery in Bernalillo, NM.   Pallbearers will be Manuel Baca, Dennis Baca, Dennis Lee, Matthew Abousleman, Patrick Aguilar, and Phillip Sapien.
