Obit Bertha VigilIn loving memory of my mother, Bertha Vigil, who passed away Feb. 18, 2021, at Rocky Mountain Care Willow Springs in Tooele.

Mom was born July 27, 1924, in Costilla, New Mexico, to Sinforosa Cordova and Elizardo Vigil. She moved to Tooele around 1950, where she worked at the Tooele Army Depot. She met my father Juan and married in 1954.

Mother enjoyed sewing, cooking crocheting and visiting with family and friends. Her favorite shows were “As the World Turns” and “Wheel of Fortune.” She enjoyed playing bingo and going to Wendover with my father. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt.

She is survived by her daughter Barbara (Glen); grandson Carlos (Hillary); great-granddaughters Aaliyah, Irianna, Shayla and Adrianna; sisters Victoria (Ray), Priscilla (Frank), Lisa (Robert), Mary-Lou (Dave); brothers Dennis (Henrietta), Gustavo (Beatrice) and Arthur (Darlene). 

She was preceded in death by her parents Sinforosa Cordova and Elizardo Vigil; husband Juan; brothers Felix (Cecilia), Farnes (Ennie), Floyd (Angie) and Paul.

She was a member of St. Marguerite Parish. A devout Catholic. She carried the type of presence that left everyone smiling and left an impact on everyone’s lives. 

A heartfelt thank you to Rocky Mountain Care for the wonderful care she was given and to all her friends she made during her stay.
