Remembering Joy

in-memory-352x330-300x281Many Mothers, and the birthing community of Santa Fe, are saddened by the loss of Joy Rose Lanum, who passed from this life on March 12, 2015. Joy worked with Many Mothers as a volunteer for 16 years caring for and mentoring new moms, providing loving and nurturing support to so many babies, and invaluable guidance to new mothers as they were learning to navigate the complexities of nursing their infants.

Joy loved God, her beloved family and friends, reading, music, flowers, New Mexico, rainbows and animals. “Babies are the best thing on earth”, she often said. She will be missed by everyone she knew and all of those whose lives she touched.

As a tribute to Joy and to share her cherished memory, Many Mothers is pleased to announce the creation of the Joy Rose Lanum Fund, to help provide emergency funds to new mothers and families in need. For more information about the fund please contact Many Mothers at
