Monica Barros-Torres

July 13, 1967 — March 13, 2024

Monica Marie Barros-Torres, 56, passed away unexpectedly on March 13, 2024.

Born July 13, 1967 to Mary and Jimmy Barros, she grew up in Albuquerque graduating from Del Norte HS and attended classes at the College of Santa Fe. Employed at Gap, Inc since 2002, sh·e loved her job and colleagues. Monica's life was too short to many, but those of us who were blessed to be touched by her understand that her existence and the imprint Monica left on our hearts exceed the quantity of time that we had with her.

She is survived by her husband of over 20 years, whom she adored, Dave Torres. She was an amazing mom to Mark Padilla, and cherished stepmother to Jeanette and Davie Torres. Monica's love extended beyond her immediate family to embrace her parents, Mary and Jimmy Barros; siblings Michael and Michelle; nieces Mandy and Angelica; and nephews Marcos, James and Julian. She had seven grandchildren Erik, Xavier, Eva, Asa, Uriah, Miah, and Amarae. She loved her fur babies Sammy and Toby. Her warmth and affection knew no bounds, and her presence brought joy to countless hearts.

To celebrate Monica's remarkable life, funeral services will be held at Queen of Heaven Catholic Church, 5300 Claremont Ave NE on Monday, April, 15, 2024. Rosary begins at 9:30 am, followed by Mass at 10:00am. Cemetery services will be at Sunset Memorial Park. Reception will follow cemetery services at Queen of Heaven parish Hall. For more information visit www.FrenchFunerals.com. Join us to honor her memory and find solace in each other's embrace. Pallbearers will be James Barros, Julian Barros, Marcos Gering, Mark Madrid, Joe Madrid, and Peter Chavez.

Monica, you will always be in our hearts, and we will never forget the love and light you brought into our lives. Your passionate and vivacious life will continue to inspire us, just as your kindness and warmth will continue to guide us. Rest in peace, dear Monica. Your spirit will live on forever in the memories and hearts of all who had the privilege of knowing you. We love you so much.
