Our Mom was a strong woman her whole life, successfully living in her own home until her passing on February 16, 2016, Fred's wife for 30 years, a great Mom to 10 kids and a love for her grandchildren that words cannot describe. Mom was always very creative, sewing for all of her girls, crocheting, quilting, playing her word search puzzles, and our favorite, her homemade tortillas
She survived heart-breaking moments with the loss of her own mother at a young age, the loss of her husband Fred, sons Donald Martinez and Manuel Cardiel and most recently her sister Carmen Bustos. She is survived by her siblings Dolores Garibay, Joey Martinez and Basil Martinez. Children Jerome Martinez, Pauline (Ron) Garton, Pat (Tom) Nieto, Sylvia (Ruben) Valdez, Alfred Cardiel, Liz (Don) Marshall, Nancy Terrazas, Valerie (Robert) Espinoza and numerous Grandchildren, Great Grandchildren, and Great Great Grandchildren. While dementia may have taken her from us too soon, she has left us with memories filled with love and forever laughter
