Longtime Moab resident Margaret Torres passed away on Dec. 9 after a brief illness.

Margaret was born on March 1, 1924, in Olathe Colo. She married Nick Torres on Aug. 28, 1943. They moved to Moab in the 1950s. They raised 11 children: Mike Torres, deceased, Nickey Alba, deceased, Nicomedes Joe Junior Torres, deceased, Sarah Aderman of Idaho. Roger and Espie Torres of Elko, Nev., Deanna and Jim Whittaker of Lubbock, Texas, Jesse and Ann Torres of Elko, Nev., Lillian Garcia, deceased, Laurie Torres of Salt Lake City, Utah, Lisa Torres of Moab, and Monica Torres of Kirtland, N.M.

Margaret had many grandchildren and great-grandchildren and was a member of the Catholic Church.

Margaret was a very kind, helpful and caring person. During her life journey she touched the lives of many people. Margaret’s wish was to be cremated and a memorial service will be held at a later date when weather permits on the La Sal Mountains, as was her wish.

The memorial date and time will be posted in the Moab newspaper at a later date.
