Obituary

Longtime resident of El Rito, Colorado, Carmel Rael, 86, died October 3, 2020 at her home in El Rito surrounded by her family while under hospice care.

Carmel was a member of the Carmelita’s and the Sacred Heart societies. She loved cooking for her family. She taught many of her family members how to fish and hunt and also instilled a hard working ethic in them as they worked with her on their ranch. Carmel was the glue that held the family together.

Carmel is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her children Doris Vigil, Jane Rael and daughter-in-law Juanita Rael; her brothers and sisters: Julio DeHerrera, Joe Aragon, Amos Aragon and Vivian Rodriguez; her grandchildren: Mario Valdez, Erving Rael, Jr., and Juan Rael; her great-grandchildren: Odosio Thompson and Mikaela Rael.
