Levinia Ocaña, 68 of Santa Fe, NM passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Tuesday, March 2, 2021. Levinia, affectionately known as “Libbey”, was born on September 5, 1952 in Santa Rosa, NM to Francisco Ocaña and Eufemia (Romero) Ocaña. Levinia was raised in Puerto De Luna, NM and attended school in Santa Rosa, where she graduated from Santa Rosa High School. Levinia also attended college after high school. Levinia owned and operated Southwest Jewels in Santa Fe, NM. Her jewelry store consisted of native New Mexico jewelry and pottery. Levinia retired from her business a few years ago. Along with her business, Levinia enjoyed collecting pottery and jewelry and she especially enjoyed getting to know the native people of not only New Mexico, but people from around the world. Her favorite color was blue, and being a native New Mexican, Levinia “couldn’t eat chile”! Levinia was a faithful parishioner at Saint Francis Cathedral in Santa Fe, where she was a member of the Catholic Sodality. Levinia had a big heart for helping people and doing for others. Being such a kind person, Levinia will be greatly missed by her family. Levinia is preceded in death by her parents and her brothers; Tony Ocaña and Marcelino Ocaña. Levinia is survived by her brother; Frank Ocaña (Della) of Albuquerque, NM and her sisters; Bertha Ocaña of Santa Rosa, NM, Cecilia Ocaña of California, Consuelo Ocaña and Margaret Ocaña of Santa Fe, NM, Julia Ocaña of Texas and Patsy Putnam, as well as many nephews, nieces and friends, whom she was very fond of. Levinia was baptized and took her first Holy Eucharist at Nuestra Señora Del Refugio Catholic Church in Puerto De Luna, NM where her funeral Mass was held on Monday, March 08, 2021 with Father Christopher Bernabe officiating. Interment followed at Nuestra Señora Del Refugio Cemetery. We kindly ask that you keep Levinia and her family in your prayers.
