Services are scheduled Tuesday in Abiquiú for Epifania “Eppie” Archuleta, a nationally renowned weaver from Santa Cruz, N.M., who died Friday at the Presbyterian Española Hospital after contracting pneumonia, her daughter, Norma Medina, said on Monday. She was 92.

Archuleta, who was raised in Medanales before moving to Capulin, Colo., with her husband, received a Heritage Fellowship in 1985 from the National Endowment for the Arts for her work as a weaver. Among her recognitions, work by Archuleta is on permanent display at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
