Albuquerque, NM – Leah E (Jaramillo) Wills, age 89 years young, gained her angel wings on November 29, 2022.
She was born in Socorro, NM on March 23rd or 24th, 1933. (not sure because her beloved Mother said the 23rd, but her birth certificate says the 24th) Leah was the third child of 8 of the late John and Flora Jaramillo of Socorro and was the widow of the late Joe R. Wills, to whom she was married to for 36 years. She was a very loving Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Great Great Grandmother. The couple had three children, Debbie Wills Kaufman, the late Joe R. Wills II and Richard Wills and as of this date 28 Grand, Great Grand and Great Great Grandchildren. Which are too many to name, but she loved them all enormously.Leah is also survived by her sisters, Gloria Casey and Corina Taylor and a brother Andy Jaramillo. She has now joined her siblings Tony Jaramillo, Isabel Montoya, Loraine Woodard and Frank Jaramillo. She is also survived by numerous Cousins, Nieces and Nephews which she loved enormously. Each and every one! And friends by the dozens.
Leah was a Hairdresser for over 50 years. She along with her sister Gloria and brother Andy owned and worked at Hairmates. She was a devout Catholic her entire life and so loved her church.
Services will be held at San Miguel Church with a Rosary at 9:30AM and a Mass following. Our Beloved Mother Leah will then be buried at San Miguel Cemetery.
