Reina was born on Oct. 19, 1913 in Three Rivers, NM to Modesto and Batris Rico who have both preceded her in death.
Reina lived and raised her 5 children in Greenfield, NM. She loved her children, was not afraid of hard work and raised her children to do the same. In the late 1970,s she met the love of her life, Jesus Christ and served Him fervently and every decision she made throughout her life was based on His will and much prayer. Alzheimer’s stole a lot from our mother but it did not take the love of Jesus from her; He remained in her till 8:45 Feb. 4, 2014 like He said He would (Hebrews …13:5). Then He took her and now she resides with Him forever.
