Benavidez of Socorro; grandchildren: Justin Padilla, Jordan Padilla and wife Celina; Kendra, Amberli Benavidez; great-grandchildren: (which she fondly kidded she loved more than her own children) Elijah Jude and Tessa Tamari Marshall, Jayla, Eric Jr, and Zayie Garcia of Socorro, Harmony, Carlie, and Ashe Padilla of Albuquerque NM. Brothers; Joe Raymond (Joe) and Jamie Turrietta, and sisters; Peggy Leyba, Sylvia Gamez of Socorro, and Rosemary Armijo of Albuquerque NM. Along with numerous loving nieces and nephews, cousins and godchildren.

June was a very giving, loving and caring person who would help anyone in need, and was deeply saddened with the loss of her husband Albert C. Padilla of 56 years, a day never passed in which he wasn’t remembered.

Following health guidelines, a walk-through visitation will be held on Friday, February 19, 2021, at 9:30 a.m. at Daniels Family Funeral Home, Socorro NM.  A funeral procession after the family’s last viewing will proceed to Lemitar, NM Cemetery where a Rosary will be recited followed by the Catholic committal.
