Francisca Macias De Riley, age 85, passed away Monday the 17th of October 2022. She was born on April 2nd, 1937 in Zacatecas, Mexico, to Rito Macias and Matiana Montalvo, though the date on her birth certificate was April 12 th . She was the fourth of eight children. Francisca, affectionately known as Kika, spent most of her childhood in Aguas Calientes before moving to the El Paso area as a young woman to provide for her family, which was always her biggest priority. She was the proud mother of seven children: Jorge, Letty, Manny, Lillie, Jimmy (+), Charlie, and Sylvia. She built a firm foundation for her children just as she built her own house in Sunland Park, where she also helped raise several grandchildren. It is still home to many. She was an avid storyteller who delighted in sharing folk tales, legends, and family stories.
