Obituary for Norma Estrada Vejil (Estrada)

Norma Estrada  Vejil (Estrada)
Norma Estrada-Vejil, 64, passed away on January 4, 2021. She was born in Fabens, TX, where she graduated from Fabens High School as valedictorian of her class. She went on to earn her English bachelor's degree from Notre Dame University and spent nearly 40 years working as a technical writer and editor for several industries in El Paso, TX. The last 16 years of her illustrious career were spent working for the federal government at an organization at White Sands Missile Range, NM. Norma was preceded in death by her parents Maria Luisa and Andres Estrada Sr., her brothers Ernesto, Tomas, and Andres Estrada Jr., and sister Maria Inez.
She is survived by her husband of 32 years Fred Vejil, who will cherish the memories of weekends they spent in Ruidoso playing the slots she enjoyed so much. She is also survived by her sisters Alicia Gonzales, Berta Meunier, Gloria Estrada and her brother David Estrada as well as many nieces and nephews, stepdaughter, stepson, and step granddaughter.
Norma was humble, loving, kind, loyal and generous. Her brilliant and astute intellect made her a wonderful conversationalist who could spend hours talking about everything from politics and current events to sports to the latest television shows with people from all walks of life. She was revered by colleagues and loved by many. We will miss you our beloved Normy. May you be at peaceful rest now with God and all your loved ones who preceded you.
Services will not be held at this time. Look for a notice of a service in Norma’s honor when it is safe to do so.
In memory of Norma, who loved her cats Blondie and Alice, donations can be made to Action Program for Animals (APA) in Las Cruces or another charity of your choice
