Emilia Pena Madrid

July 10, 1924 — July 2, 2020

Emilia Pena Madrid, 95, passed away Thursday, July 2, 2020. When Emilia was born July 10, 1924 in St. Johns her father Manuel Pena was 26 and her mother Benina Ulibarri Pena was 20. She married Encarnacion John Madrid on October 25, 1941 in her hometown. They had 5 natural children and 1 adopted.

Emilia enjoyed going to church on Sundays and loved animals. Aside from always having a dog and cat, her and her husband raised chickens, ducks, cows, pigs and rabbits at their ranch. She always had a small vegetable garden, a few fruit trees and vines of grapes. Emilia was a hard worker. She knew how to work, always had energy and barely sat down. Even in her late 80’s she had more energy than most people in their 20’s. Although she worked hard and was not afraid to get dirty, she also loved to get all dolled up. She had class. She never walked outside unless her hair was done and her makeup was on and she was wearing her finest clothes.

Her hobbies included crocheting, camping, fishing and singing and she absolutely loved to dance. She was a member of the American Legion Women’s Auxillary.

Emilia is survived by her son, Johnny J. Madrid, St. Johns; daughters, Dora Mae Madrid, Flagstaff; Dolores Cancino, Phoenix; Christina Barreras, Holbrook; Sandra Knox, St. Johns; brothers, Gilbert Pena, Elfigo Pena, sister, Cecilia Pena, 22 grandchildren, 42 great grandchildren, 50 great, great grandchildren and 3 great, great, great grandchildren.
