  • Saundra Riebe

    July 7, 1943 to April 8, 2012
    It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my mother Sandy Riebe, 68, on April 8. My mother was a beautiful, kind and honest person. I will never get over the loss of my mother but I’m so relieved that she is free from illness and pain.  She touched many lives in her 68 years in Los Alamos and Española, including many of those years spent working at Española Hospital.
    She loved living in the Valley. She and I would spend long hours hiking and marveling at the beauty that we lived in. Mom has seven brothers and sisters: Jay, Shelly, Lorraine, Debbie, Joe, Chuck and Bruce, who all share my grief and joy that she is someplace better.
