Magdalena Calderon

Magdalena Calderon, 86, of Mora Street, Carlsbad, NM, went to be with our Lord Jesus Christ December 27, 2023. She went peacefully surrounded by her family at her home.

Magdalena was born in Presidio, Texas to Jorge Mendoza and Luz Hinojos. She also had two brothers, Manuel Mendoza and Jose Mendoza. She then went off and married Manuel Jr. Calderon. He peacefully passed away in 1989.

Magdalena was a homemaker all her life, raising 14 children: 7 girls and 7 boys. She loved her family, enjoyed cooking, gardening, and playing bingo. She also loved to do crossword puzzles and puzzles. Mostly, she loved her 4-legged puppies, her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren. She was the family’s rock. During holidays and get-togethers at her home, she welcomed everyone—family and friends—she loved all.

Magdalena is preceded in death by her parents, 2 brothers, Manuel Mendoza and Jose Mendoza, a son, Manuel 3rd Calderon, a daughter, Elpida Calderon, granddaughter Sabrina Calderon, grandson Mathew Jr. Vasquez, and great-grandson Shiloh Berdoza.

Magdelena will be missed dearly by all.
