Helen Holt passed away peacefully on Wednesday, March 6th, 2024, at her home at the age of 94. She was born on April 8th, 1929, to Rubel Oracio Medina and Eugenia Vigil in Alamosa, Colorado. Helen was a devout Catholic who guided her family’s character and spiritual foundation through her compassionate and unconditional loving support.

Helen was known for her caring and kindhearted spirit, wisdom, and ability to warm the room with an infectious smile and loving demeanor, enriching everyone’s life who met her.

She will be remembered as the matriarch of the family who had a magical touch with plants, loved birds, singing, cooking and passing down her family stories and traditions.
