Lillian Lucille Saavedra

June 24, 1951  ~  August 16, 2022


Lillian Lucille Saavedra, our beloved mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend, is now resting in the Lord's and beloved family's company. A lifelong resident of Albuquerque, New Mexico, Lillian loved creating art, watching funny videos, advocating for the voiceless, and being with her family. All of her family and friends deeply loved Lillian.


Preceded in death by her daughter, Nadine Saavedra, grandson, Jude Jaramillo, parents, Lucy & Salomon Martinez, brother, Henry Martinez, sisters, Eleanor Griego & Yolanda Alderete. Lillian is survived by her sons, Richard (Shawna) and Gabriel Saavedra, grandchildren, Candace (Chris) Rios and Nathan Barela, great-grandchildren, Ariela, Gianna & Bentley, as well as her sisters, Lorraine Gomez & Julie Martinez, sister-in-law, Louise Martinez, and her many nieces, nephews, cousins, her best friend, and dog, Lola. 


Working at Mountain Bell was a significant part of her life; some of her fondest memories were made with her colleagues at the phone company. Everyone loved Lillian's infectious smile and loving demeanor. Lillian leaves a legacy of unconditional love and optimism.
