Josefina “Josey” Valles, 44 of Hobbs, New Mexico was called to meet her maker on November 29, 2018 alongside with her loving mother, Laura Marin.

Josey was preceded in death by her loving husband, Ramon Valles, in December 2014 and her mother-in-love, Irma Valles. Together Josey and Ramon created their most precious possessions, their two beautiful daughters, Amaris Valles and Isabella Valles.

Josey and Ramon were a match made in heaven. Their loved ones find comfort knowing the two are together in heaven just as her heart desired for four years.

Josey was a 1992 Hobbs High School graduate. She obtained her Bachelor’s Degree from University of the Permian Basin, pursuing her Masters and growth in the legal field. Josey was a Paralegal and Office Manager for eight years. Prior to that, Josey served as an Adult Probation Officer. Her passions included, drawing, painting, hosting gatherings and attending her parent’s church Cristo La Puerta. Throughout the course of her life, Josey left a mark in the many people she met, creating lifetime friendships. She was loved dearly by all those touched by her genuine and loyal personality.

To most, Josey was known as “the calm to the storm” leaving her legacy for being the strongest, the smartest, and toughest. She had a special kind of love and closeness, all unique with each of her siblings. She is survived by her father, Pastor Jesus Marin, her siblings, Laura Castillo, Mireya Marin, Wendy Mendoza, Jesse Marin, Rito Marin and Crystal Marin and many nieces and nephews whom she loved unconditionally.

    Sister, no words could ever do justice to how amazing you were. Our strength, the calm to our storm, the one who set us straight when we were getting out of control. I know you yearned to be with your love, Ramon but you can't blame me for wanting to be selfish and keep you to myself. I need your guidance, your words and encouragement to walk through life. Thank you for not letting mom leave this world by herself. She loved your company and now yall get to enjoy heaven and prepare a spot for the rest of us. I will forever hold on to the memories of our trips together, singing to Guardianes del amor, dancing in the living room. You were never too busy to spend time with me even when you were in your 20s enjoying life and I was an annoying teenager. Thank you for your help in raising my babies and for being a wonderful big sister. Always and forever your baby sis!

    Josey you'll be missed so much. I want to thank you from the bought of my heart those words of wisdom you gave me while I was on probation. Your talk and advice made me look at my life totally different. When u left probation, I got passed down to your sister Crystal. Another one that set me straight. I'll miss you so much. You are a great woman and wonderful mom. R.I.P. and you watch over your family. God has taken a beautiful Angel. you deserve your wings. God bless you. Always in my thoughts and prayers.
