OBITUARY: Amber Renee Archuleta


d. July 29, 2023

Amber Renee Archuleta unexpectedly and tragically departed this world on July 28, 2023.


She is survived by her father, Joshua Archuleta; brother, Frankie Archuleta, of Questa; brother Joshua Archuleta, Jr.; grandmother Mary Archuleta (Fabian); aunts Rita Cordova (Danny), Glenda Archuleta-Alnachef (Phillip), Edith Archuleta (Jorge), Yvette Boatman (Mark), and uncle Jonathan Archuleta.


Amber is preceded in death by her mother Vanessa Romero; maternal grandparents Frank Romero and Patsy Romero from Mora; paternal grandfather Fabian Archuleta; uncle Vincent Archuleta, both from Questa; and her aunt, Melissa Archuleta Wood from Wyoming.


Amber was shy and yet was outgoing with a spunky personality. She enjoyed giving her friends and family a serious yet playful attitude. Amber was a talented artist, and her artwork is displayed at the Questa Library. She taught herself to play the guitar and was an avid Denver Broncos fan. She enjoyed playing basketball on the court and off the court at her grandmother’s home, or anywhere else. Amber attended Questa schools and this year she would have been in the 8th grade. Amber had many friends which she supported through good and bad times. Amber will truly be missed by everyone. Rest in peace, sweet angel, we love you very much.


The memorial service was held on Saturday, August 12, 2023 at 10:00 am at the Questa High School gymnasium.
