Consuelo was born April 6, 1938 in Ascension, Chih., Mexico to Julia Zapata. She raised five children with her husband of over 50 years, Rafael Jauregui II. Consuelo was a devout Catholic and a parish member of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Bayard. She was also a proud Guadalupana. Before her retirement, Consuelo devoted her time to housekeeping at Fort Bayard Medical Center where she worked for over 15 years. In her free time, Consuelo was an enthusiastic Bingo player and played as much as she could, even while traveling, sometimes winning big! Consuelo was known and loved for her cooking, especially her menudo, red enchiladas, and beans. To this day, no one can quite match her cooking.

Consuelo is preceded in death by her mother, Julia Zapata; brothers, Polo and Manuel Quintana; and sister, Chila Quintana.

She is survived by her husband, Rafael Jauregui II; sons, Guadalupe (Gabriela) Cano, Robert (Linda) Cano, Rogelio (Reina Udero) Cano, and Rafael Jauregui III; daughter, Francelia Cano; 12 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
