Valicia Benitez was born May 21, 1994 to Omar Benitez and Alicia Gomez in Roswell, NM.
Valicia was a beloved daughter, sister and mother.
Valicia’s greatest love in this world was being a mother to her two beautiful daughters, Annalicia and Adalena. She enjoyed being around her family, especially her brothers and sister. There was never a dull moment with Valicia in the room, laughing, clowning on her siblings, or bonding over their shared interest. She was an avid reader, she enjoyed writing stories and poetry, she loved drawing and listening to music. Our loss is great and she will be immensely missed.
