Virginia M. Thrap

August 17, 1920 — January 6, 2024

Albuquerque

 On Saturday, January 6th, 2024, we lost the matriarch of our family! We had 103 years of wonderful memories with her and each of us will remember them fondly. She has touched many people in the 103 years she lived. She was a great human being and showered her family with unlimited love and opportunities. Our hearts are broken, but knowing the angels have led her quickly to her place where she will continue to watch over us all brings comfort and celebration for the time we had with her!

Virginia M. Thrap was born in Solano, New Mexico, on August 17, 1920. She was raised in Roy, New Mexico and is the eldest of seven siblings. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Thrap; mother, Carmelita Mascarenas; father, Jose A. Mascarenas; sisters, Sarah Velarde and Lucia Mascarenas; and brothers, Tony and Eloy Mascarenas.
