Flora was born on August 15, 1926, to Emeliana and Max Romero in Walsenburg, Colo, where she was raised by her grandparents, Enoveva and Ruben Romero. She is predeceased by her parents; grandparents; her husband, Arthur J. Ortiviz; granddaughter, Tracy Lynn Tafoya; beloved aunt, Rose Ortega; step mother, Esther Romero; sister, Loyola Mondragon; and brother, Juan Antonio Romero; and many other relatives.
Flora loved spending time with her family, especially the annual fishing trip she and Art planned every year which she continued after his death. She also looked forward to trips to Las Vegas and Cripple Creek, holiday dinners, summer cookouts, playing cards (cheating to beat the grandkids) and making tortillas. Her devotion to her family was as strong as her faith in Christ. Attending Mass and religious celebrations became part of her legacy for her children.
