Want to add more?
I appreciate any help and information anyone provides.
Teofila or Tiofila Trujillo's grave is on the South side of the church
in Lucero (El Coyote) and Leo was just buried there as well (just to the right of his mother). Leo died on July 1 and was buried on July 3, 1998. The services were well attended and many nice things were said of Leo's kindness and thoughtfulness. Alfonso, Albert, and Sophie attended the services as well as nephews and nieces from Utah and New Mexico.
See you at an upcoming reunion.
