Trinidad “Triny” M. Duran
Trinidad “Triny” M. Duran, (almost) 95, of Adelino, peacefully passed away Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born Sept. 17, 1919, in Carnuel, N.M., the daughter of Salvador and Aurelia Herrera. In 1943, she married Cipriano Duran, and together they had 10 wonderful children.
Triny was the matriarch of the family. She lived to see five generations. Triny loved everyone she met, and everyone loved her. Everyone knew her as “Gramma D.”
She was famous for her Sunday morning breakfasts, her annual birthday celebrations, her beans, tortillas, chile, empanadas, chile rellenos (the little footballs) her “punkin” pies and biscochitos. No celebration was complete without her sweet rice.
Her door and her heart were open to everyone. Her favorite saying was, “I may have a little house, but I have a Big Heart,” and she did. She was an awesome person, who expressed an abundance of love.
After raising her children, she still had so much love to give, she went to work as a foster grandparent for many years both at the Los Lunas Hospital and Training School, and later at the elementary schools.
In her spare time, she enjoyed going to the casino (for therapy), playing pokeno, crocheting, embroidering, crafts, but mostly she enjoyed spending time with her friends and family.
She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Cipriano Duran; sons, Jerry Duran and Gilfred Duran; grandsons, Steven and Paul Jaramillo, Robert (Robbie) Garcia; and daughter-in-law, Anita Duran.
Triny is survived by her children, Lily and husband, Orlando Jaramillo, Gloria, Jeannie and husband, Mike Garcia, Regina Duran, Yolanda and husband, Robert Garcia, Kathy and husband, Carlos Casillas, Paul and wife, Dina Duran, Rose Mary and husband, James Sandoval, Betty and husband, Leonard Perea; daughters-in-law, Marvine Duran and Linda Duran; 56 grandchildren, 69 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren; sister, Mela Garcia; sister-in-law, Leornardita Montano; and brothers-in-law, Fedienco and wife, Mabel Duran and Antonio Baca. She is also survived by numerous loving nieces, nephews, and very special friends, Mela Jaramillo and Emma Sedillo.
