Obituary for Socorro Ortiz de Miramontes

Socorro Ortiz de Miramontes was born on May 13, 1948 in Palestina, Mpo Jimenez, Coahuila, Mexico to Manuel Ortiz Ponce and Amada Torres (Guerrero) Ponce. She raised on a rural ranch in Mexico with her eleven siblings. At age 16, Socorro’s mother, Amada, died while giving child birth to Socorro’s youngest sibling. Socorro became the matriarch for the family and took on the four youngest children.
At the age of 29, Socorro married Alonso Miramontes-Navarro in Mexico in 1977. In 1980 they immigrated to Pocatello, Idaho. They raised six of their own children and Socorro’s youngest sister. Socorro was an impressive woman, always loving and giving, putting her family and her Catholic faith above all things. She had a very basic education. She had never learned to drive or had worked outside the home but her capacity to feed and care for others was second to none. She was an amazing cook and a skilled seamstress, an excellent homemaker and a wonderful mother with a contagious smile.
Socorro was preceded in death by her parents. She is survived by her husband, Alonso of Pocatello; children, Alonso Jr, Valentina, Esther, Sara, Rodrigo, and Pedro Manuel; as well as eight grandchildren and eleven siblings.
Socorro passed away suddenly from complications of a chronic illness on Dec. 22, 2018 at Portneuf Medical Center. A Catholic Rosary with viewing will be held at 6:00 pm on Friday, Dec. 28th at Downard Funeral Home, 241 N. Garfield Ave, Pocatello. The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 am on Sat. Dec. 29th at Holy Spirit Catholic Community, St. Joseph’s Chapel at 439 N. Hayes, Pocatello. Interment will be at Mt View Cemetery in Pocatello immediately following Mass.
