Maria Patricia Martinez

Funeral Services for Maria Patricia Martinez, 80 of Giddings, were held on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at St. Margaret’s Catholic Church in Giddings with Father Uche Andeh officiating.

Maria was born on March 27th, 1936 in Mexico to Nasario and Inez Eguia. She was united in marriage to Cesario Martinez on June 28, 1968. God blessed their marriage with five children. She had a servant’s heart and was always concerned about the welfare of others. In her final days, she was more concerned with making sure her husband, children and grandchildren were taken care of. She took care of them her entire life and in turn, they took care of her when she was no longer able. The families’ prayers were answered when she joined the Lord peacefully at her home surrounded by her family the afternoon of Sunday, February 26, 2017.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother and sister, and an infant daughter.

She is survived by her husband of 48 years, Cesario Martinez of Giddings; her children, Adrian and Lupe Lara, Paul and Tammy Martinez, Edmundo and Cecilia DeLaRosa, and Rogelio and Dolores Flores all of Giddings. Her grandchildren are Blake, Hattie and Sam Harmon, Jaina and Amara Lara; Jonathon and Hunter Stricker, Kylynn Martinez; Damian, Belle, and Julian DeLaRosa; and Adrian, Mercedes, and Sebastian Flores. She also had one great grandchild, Will Harmon. She is also survived by 3 sisters, 1 brother, and numerous nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Giddings Volunteer Fire Department, Hospice Brazos Valley, St. Margaret’s Catholic Church or to the charity of one’s choice.
