Born April 14, 1934 in Las Vegas New Mexico passed away peacefully on March 14, 2020 in Pueblo, Colorado.   Marie was an avid Broncos fan.  She loved spending time with her kids and grandkids, shopping, having lunch with friends, meeting for mass on Saturday afternoon and visiting on the phone.   Coffee time with her friends or daughters was one of her favorite ways to catch up on the weeks’ happenings.  She had a great sense of humor and always found something to laugh about.  She loved getting text message photos and videos of the great grandkids.

Marie was preceded in death by her parents Miguel and Leonor Gallegos, brother William Gallegos, son-in-law Greg Files and Larry Van Matre.  Her survivors include  her brother Archie Garcia; her daughters, Sheri Files, Mary (William) Barr, Renee (David) Greenway and Evalee Malespini.  Also, survived by grandchildren Ashley (Micky) Schlagel, Lauren (Steve) Boothe, Kaitlyn (Aaron) Steinberg, Brian Martinez, Traci Files, Kyle (Jacinta) Shoop, Kody Shoop, Sean (Ashley) Greenway, Chelsea Greenway, Madison Greenway and six great grandchildren.
