Nydia Martinez Montañez, 63, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday, June 24, 2014 at Valley Baptist Medical Center in Brownsville, Texas.

She attended Texas Southmost College and then Pan American University in Edinburg where she obtained her Bachelor's of Education degree. In 1976, she married Eduardo Montañez and moved to Mexico City where they lived for 10 years. While living in the D.F., Nydia taught at the Colegio Americano and Moderno Americano. After the earthquake of 1986, Nydia persuaded her husband to leave Mexico City and return to Brownsville to live.

Nydia touched the lives of countless students during a career with the BISD that spanned 25 years. She taught Second grade at both Canales and Burns Elementary Schools.

Nydia was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed not only by her family and friends but by all those fortunate to have known her.

Nydia was preceded in death by her parents, Manuela Salinas and Miguel Lugo Martinez.
