Rochelle Lee Cano-Linson, 45, passed away suddenly on Monday, November 2, 2020 at her home in Elephant Butte, New Mexico. She was born in Albuquerque, NM to Frank and Lorraine (Archuleta) Cano.

Rochelle was a glistening soul, who left a lasting impression on everyone she met. She put her heart into everything she did and was always looking for her next adventure. She will forever be remembered for her time spent as a substitute teacher, coach, waitress and friend. She had a strong love for the Lord that helped her shine through life, especially when doing what she loved: crafts, gardening, and fitness.

Her greatest accomplishments were her two children: Dakota Cano-Linson and Ella Cano-Linson, who are left to carry on her memory. She is also survived by her father, Frank Cano; her sister, Ashley Gutierrez and husband, Phillip; as well as numerous friends.

Rochelle was greeted in Heaven by her mother, Lorrain Archuleta Marks.

Cremation has taken place and a Memorial Service was held on Friday, November 6, 2020 in Albuquerque, NM. The family would like to thank everyone who reached out, offered a word of kindness, prayed for them and made a donation; your kindness and love will never be forgotten.
