Ruby Archuleta, age 82, from Taos Pueblo passed away peacefully Friday, February 3, 2023. 

She was loved by so many in the community for her work in the Health Care field.  Ruby worked at Holy Cross Hospital in her early years as a Respiratory Therapist, before leaving to pursue work as a seamstress for a prominent dress maker in Taos Plaza. Eventually she returned to health care with the private sector, taking care of many people over the years and building friendships along the way that she truly cherished.  She finished her working years as a CNA at the Taos Living Center, which she loved. 

Ruby was preceded in death by her mother Lena Archuleta; father Teofilo Archuleta; siblings Lena May, Francis Suazo, Isabel Reyna and Jim Archuleta. She was a devoted mother of three children Isabel S. Reynolds Martinez, Walter J. Reynolds (Tammy) and K. Stephen Reynolds (Melissa); 11 grandchildren Brandon Whitaker, Randi L.
