Deolinda Calchera died peacefully on December 17th, 2023. Deolinda was born on October 24th, 1963, on Fort Huachuca, Arizona to Alfred and Maria Calchera.
She lived her entire life in Sierra Vista. Even though she faced many challenges, she didn’t let her disabilities stop her from living a full, joyful life. She attended Sierra Vista Public Schools and graduated from Buena High School in 1986. She had numerous jobs over the years, but her last and most rewarding job was with Pioneer Title Agency which she retired from in 2013. She had many good memories of working there. She was also very active in the Special Olympics where she was a member of the track and field, bowling, and basketball teams. She won many medals and was very proud of her accomplishments.
She loved music and dancing and was always ready for a party. Her favorite artist was Michael Jackson and she had almost every album he made. She was also a very good poet and wrote many poems over the years. Deolinda loved her family and friends with a full heart. She also loved her dogs. Especially her last dog, a little pug named Bobby. In her final years she was cared for by a wonderful staff at AIRES that became like family to her. Her life touched many, and her joy was infectious. The world was a better place with her in it, and we are all better people for knowing her.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alfred and Maria Calchera. She is survived by her sister Vola (Mike) Dague, her nieces Lisa Schnier and Hollie (Alan) Brown, three great nephews, and a great niece.
Deolinda was laid to rest with her parents in a private service at the Post Cemetery. She will be forever loved and missed.
