Maria Teresa Martinez (Hernandez), 66. Our beloved, Terri, was called home to be with our Lord on Thursday, June 19, 2014, surrounded by her family and loved ones. Terri was born on November 24, 1947 in El Paso, Texas. She received her Bachelor's Degree in Education from the University of Texas at El Paso in 1969. She then joined the United States Marine Corps in 1970 and proudly served her country as a 1st Lieutenant stationed at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, California where she later was honorably discharged.

After her retirement, she continued to teach child development courses part time at El Paso Community College. Terri was preceded in death by her parents, Manuel M. and Angela R. Hernandez, and her special angel niece, Angie Sanchez. She is survived by seven siblings; Mike Hernandez (Edna), Robert Hernandez, Maria Elena Hernandez, Manuel Hernandez, Jr. (Mary Ellen), Alice Jimenez, Rebecca Sanchez (Roger), and Rachael Banales (Nash); and nineteen nieces and nephews, all of whom loved her like a second mom.
