Chama resident Angela Brianna Lobato-Esquibel, 25, gained her angel wings on July 25, 2021. Brianna made her grand entrance into the world on February 10, 1996, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the beloved daughter of Bernadette Marie Romero Lobato and Alonzo Joseph Lobato Sr.
After graduating Centennial High School, she went on to enlist and serve in the Army National Guard. She excelled at the duties tasks asked of her and was made team leader and sergeant.
While still keeping active in the guard she went on to get POST certified and become a police officer. Angela was a proud police officer of the San Luis Sheriff’s Office. She served her community and loved the interaction she got with everyone she came across.
She was a kind and loving person, most importantly an amazing mother and role model to all especially her daughter Aspen. Angela loved riding horses, going camping, hunting, snowboarding and taking care of animals. She cherished the time she was able to spend with her daughter, family and friends.
