Nancy L. Fernandez: 1932 – 2022

Longtime Alamosa resident Nancy L. Fernandez passed away on September 17, 2022. She was born in Benson, Arizona, on December 6, 1932, to Sam and Mabel Barrow. She attended college in Ellensburg, Washington, where she met and married Don Fernandez. They moved to Alamosa and together founded Fernandez Chile Company in 1958. Their other business ventures included the Chile Pod Restaurant and Alamosa Sporting Goods.

Nancy graduated from Adams State College in 1961 with a double major in English and History. She was an active member in the American Association of University Women (AAUW). She was also a 4-H leader and enjoyed wood carving and gardening.

She and Don retired to Rinconada, New Mexico, and built a beautiful home on the Rio Grande River. They spent several years building Southwest furniture and improving their property by planting fruit trees, vegetables and flowers. She loved that many people dropped by because they thought their property was a Garden Center because of all the beautiful flowers and plants.

Nancy is survived by her daughters Shannon (Jim) McCumber of Casper, WY; Patti (Dave) Skoglund of Durango, CO; Leslie (Mark) Beatty of Glendale, AZ; and Blair (Sam) Haynie of Alamosa, CO. Her husband Don Fernandez, daughter Dawn Williams and son Robert Fernandez preceded her in death.

Cremation was chosen. At her request no service will be held. Arrangements are under the direction of Newcomer Casper Chapel.
