Sally Y. Martinez Obituary
Sally Y. Martinez 7/13/1939 to 2/18/2018
Sally Y. Martinez slipped her earthly bonds on February 18, 2018. The eldest daughter of Frank and Julia Valdespino, and step-mother Genoveva. Sally was a feisty, caring and hard-working mother to Bobbie Jo Valdespino Canter, John Martinez, Maria Martinez, Lorenzo Martinez, Patricia Aragon, and Frank Martinez. She left behind 13 grand-children and on some days, it feels like hundreds great and great-great grandchildren.
Sally was a waitress at the Holloman AFB Officer and Enlisted clubs for 20 years. Many civilians knew her from the days she worked at the Desert Air restaurant. It has been told she dished out more than just food. She cared for her hydrocephalic son Lorenzo until his death at age 13. Sally cared for her father and younger sister Elvira until their deaths. Sally was the strong matriarch and involved with her family's lives. She will be missed by all.
Sally will be buried next to her mother in Deming NM on Saturday, March 24 at 12 noon after a graveside service. Fr. Ron Machado, Pastor of Holy Family Catholic Church will officiate. The family wants to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at Gerald Champion Regional Medical Center, Mountain Shadows home care, and Baca Chapel for the caring and compassion rendered to Sally.
