Obituary Condolences

Mrs. Aleja Martinez,
"Accepted in the Beloved."
(Ephesians 1:6). Aleja died on July 22, 2016. Aleja's life was one of blessing others. She grew up in a loving family of ten children. After 8th grade, she dropped out of school to go to work to help support the family. Aleja married Augustine Martinez in 1945, while he was in the U.S. Army Air Force. He proposed on the first date. They were married for sixty years and raised three children. Aleja cherished her family, and she was a devoted wife. In her younger years, she made the best tasting tamales for Christmas. At the age of 47, Aleja made a commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior. Aleja loved fellowship, reading the Bible, and telling people about Jesus.
Aleja is survived by her daughter Peggy and her husband Tom; grandchildren and great grandchildren. We rejoice that Aleja has entered the Reality promised to those who are
"Accepted in the Beloved."
Her Memorial Service will be held at Calvary Bible Church, 48 Manor Street, on October 15, 2016, at 11:00 a.m.
