Alberta Aispuro Horn

August 7, 1929 — February 14, 2024

Henderson

Alberta Aispuro Horn, 94, of Henderson passed away Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024, due to complications following two falls and hip replacement surgery.

Alberta was born on August 7, 1929, in Agua Caliente, Durango, Mexico, to Emilio and Candelaria Aispuro. At 11 years old, she emigrated to Nelson, Nevada, to live with her aunt and uncle, Buenaventura and Adolf Edwin Place, a Mining Engineer who ran the Wall Street Gold and Silver Mine.  In 1941, just before WWII, they moved to Boulder City Nevada, where “Uncle Ed” began working for the US Bureau of Mines.  Alberta quickly mastered reading, writing, and speaking in English, with an excellent vocabulary and diction, of which she was quietly proud.

Alberta grew into a strikingly beautiful woman, inside and out, of notable integrity, kindness, compassion, and quiet force of character, and married William S. Davis, in Boulder City, in 1953. “Bill” had also come to BC with his family in 1941. Alberta was industrious, joy-filled, creative and sociable. She worked as a Model for Bernie Lenz Modeling; and as a lifelong accomplished seamstress, making beautiful clothing for the ladies of the town, sewing all the Boulder City High School Cheerleaders’ uniforms, and joined the Phi Beta Kappa Sorority of Boulder City.  She was once even the centerpiece for a giant Boulder City Parade float which was a huge “Ball Gown”, with Alberta “wearing” the entire float.  

In the mid-1960’s she and Bill divorced.  In 1968, now raising her children as a loving single mother, Alberta obtained what became a 25-year-job in the brand-new Circus Circus Casino Hotel, as both Cashier of the “Pink Pony” Restaurant, as well as Food Room Service Cashier for the entire hotel during each shift.

In 1970, Alberta married Paul Horn, and they recently celebrated 54 years together! Alberta was a devout lifelong Catholic, loved and respected nearly all people, loved Jesus and Mary, kept innumerable lit candles as Prayer in her bathtub (for the Intentions of those who asked her Prayers), and together with Paul for 54 years, “kept an eye on and helped regularly” many many elderly and other  people in their communities of Boulder City and Henderson.   

Over 20 years ago, Alberta and Paul purchased “Longhorn Corrals” at Boulder City Horseman’s Association, and have taken care of their own horses and chickens, and others’ boarded horses, with Passion and Joy born of Alberta’s Durango Mexico Mountain Equine Culture, and Paul’s Upstate New York Farming Equine Culture.

Alberta is survived by her husband of 54 years: Paul; her 3 children: Brock (Poleete) Davis, Antonio (Jane) Davis, and Anna Maria Davis; her 5 grandchildren: Ariana (Brad) Wethington, Alisa (Chris) Quigley, Ryan (Alexis) Draizin, Amelia Draizin, and Regeena Draizin; her 7 great-grandchildren; and her siblings: Bella Rivas, Herminia Salazar, Petra Gomez, Francisca Ruperto, Tomas Aispuro, Amalia Aispuro, and Eufracio Ines “Facio” Aispuro. Alberta was preceded in death by 7 infants who did not survive birth: including “Davis Twins” buried in Boulder City Cemetery; and by her brothers: Ines Aispuro, Luis Aispuro, and Hermilio Aispuro.

Funeral Mass will be 11 a.m. (Viewing from 10 a.m. – 10:45 a.m.), Friday, February 23, 2024, at St. Andrew Catholic Community Church, 1399 San Felipe Way, Boulder City, NV, 89005.   Father Ron Zanoni, Presiding.
