Gloria affectionately known as 'Grandma Darling' was preceded in death by her mother, Elisa Aragon; and brother, Antonio Marcos Aragon. Gloria is survived by her father, Fernando Aragon Sr. and she leaves behind her partner in life and Angel from Heaven, Xavier Mendoza, who watched over and protected her. Gloria will be sadly missed by her beloved children, Desri Barrett (Kevin Romero), Woodland, Calif., Daniel (Marieka) Chavez, Denver, Colo.; grandchildren, Barrett Page Burton, (California), Daniel Chavez Jr. and Andrea Trujillo, both of Denver. 'Grandma Darling' was born in 1943, in Rocky Ford, Colo.

Numerous nephews, nieces, great-nephews and great-nieces will miss the lipstick kisses and flamboyant nature of their 'Grandma.' Gloria loved life, loved fun, and she brought joy to all who met her. She touched many lives throughout her career as an LPN, and she will be sadly missed. A Mass of Christian Burial to celebrate her life will be held 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 4, 2011, at St Pius X Church, 3130 Morris Ave., in Pueblo, Colo.

  3. Gloria and my mother Carol Montano Trujillo were best friends. They met in the year 1969 and and remained friends throughout all these years. They lived, laughed, and cried together. My mom last saw Gloria in August where she tried to make Gloria laugh and smile. They danced together in her wheelchair. My mom is unable to attend her services due to her current health. My mom loved her and will miss her until they see each other again. Love, Salena Montano Vigil (Carol’s daughter) and Carol Montano Trujillo.
