Eva Lara, 98, a resident of Bayard, NM entered heavens gates on Thursday, April 9, 2020 at Fort Bayard Medical Center with our Heavenly Father.
Eva Lara was born on June 21, 1921 in Hatch, NM to Rafael and Mariana Mendoza. For everyone who knew her she was a loving wife, friend, mother and a homemaker. Eva was a remarkable cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends, most especially for the holidays. Eva was a classy lady who enjoyed dancing, traveling and what her family remembers most was her enjoyment for music-especially when she would listen to Bill Acosta on KSIL. Her greatest love was when she met her husband, Isidoro Lara whom she was married seventy years and the birth of her thirteen children. In her early years, those who knew Eva recall her as a kind and warm personality, which many people were drawn to her with her infectious smile and her dress fashion. She loved her Chihuahuas. She will be dearly missed to all.
Eva was preceded in death by her two sons Robert Montenegro, and Isidoro Lara Jr. She is survived by her husband Isidoro T Lara; five daughters Loretta Lara of Silver City NM; Barbara Lara of Las Cruces, NM; Her special daughter Carol Lara of Silver City NM; Lucy Hernandez of Los Angeles California; Mary Helen Montenegro of Los Angeles California.
