Faye (Fedelina) Lobato, age 87 of Bloomfield, NM passed away on Thursday January 25, 2024. Faye was born on March 26, 1936, to William Gutierrez and Manuelita De Atocha (Valencia) Gutierrez in Farmington, NM.
Faye, Mom, Grandma was the youngest of her six siblings. She grew up in Blanco, NM where her family farmed on their ranch, growing some of the best green chili. As a young girl she loved it when it was time to take lunch to her brothers out in the fields, she would jump on her horse bare back and away she went to deliver lunches.
She met the love of her life in Blanco, NM at a wedding dance. He was wearing the brightest green socks that stuck out and he was called the Mexican Elvis Presley down to the hairdo.
At the age of 33 she gave her life to Jesus with the most profound experience ever, in which caused all her girls to run to the bedroom and cry out to God on behalf of themselves down on their knees. That changed her life forever. Her Spiritual journey and testimony is the very backbone of our family. We learned from her the importance and meaning of life as a true intercessor. She loved well and inspired many with her gifted talents. She is musically gifted, played the violin at the age of 4. Throughout her life she played many instruments, guitar, drums, piano, harmonica, auto harp, accordion and stringed instruments.
Her life was a living worship. She prayed daily for all her family and friends by name. In her later years she spent in intercessory prayer, not only for family and friends but for America and Israel, longing to see a Godly change and awaiting Gods glory to once again fill the earth. She was and is an amazing woman that loved well.
She was preceded in death by her husband Eulogio Lloyd Lobato, her sons Carl Eugene Lobato, Samuel Lobato and baby Lobato. A granddaughter Amy A. Caro Perez, Grandsons; James Lobato, Patricio Lobato Jr., Santiago Lobato, Eddie Lobato James, Carlos Martinez, Jericho Lobato.
