Rafaela was born on October 5, 1952 in Colonia Tres Almos, Mexico to Baldomero Moncada Enriquez and Antonia Medina Rivera, one of seven children. In the early 70’s she moved to New Mexico where she raised her family. Rafaela was a dedicated mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, nothing was more important to her than family. She worked hard to provide for her three children, and to be there for her grandchildren. Her love for her children was only matched by her dedication to God. Rafaela’s warm and loving presence will be dearly missed by all those who knew her.

Quezada, Lucas Quezada and Joel Desecottier, and four great-grandchildren (plus one on the way).
