It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our most precious and beloved mother, Esperanza "Bebe" Banegas Frietze, 90, of Las Cruces, who departed this life and entered into eternal life to be with our redeemer the Lord Jesus Christ on Monday, May 5, 2014, surrounded by her loving children and numerous grandchildren. Mother was born on February 14, 1924 in Silver City, New Mexico to Luis Banegas and Katarina Gandara Banegas. Upon her mother's untimely death, she was raised in San Ysidro by her aunts, Lina Rodriguez and Carolina Banegas. She married N.C. "Cheno" Frietze and resided in Mesilla for several years, where she raised six children before eventually returning to San Ysidro. After retirement, she enjoyed working in her rose garden where she grew the most beautiful roses. Our mothers most prized possession was her family. Her love of family always held a very special place in her heart of gold. She was very proud of the family she raised and it would bring a smile to her face and a gleam in her eyes when she spoke of them. She leaves behind a legacy of strength, unity and faith based on the foundations of our Lord Jesus Christ. She was her children's greatest mentor and instilled in them independence, faith, compassion, humor and gentleness which will continue to be passed down to our future family generations. Those left to mourn her passing include her daughters, Yvonne Gonzales (Ruben), Lillian Frietze, Minerva Goen, Jean Gomez (Jimmy), Eileen Hernandez (Rudy) and her son Donald (Cheri) all of Las Cruces. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild, her sister's, Connie "Chelo" (Richard) Klingler of Ripon, California, Enedina Reimer of Albuquerque, Katie Valencia of Las Cruces and a very special cousin, Jimmy Banegas (Mary) of Las Cruces. Those whom have preceded her in death are her parents, sister's Elvira Garcia, Eloisa Ybarra, Margaret Ruiz and by her grandson, Jeremy J. Hernandez.
