Obituary

Acela M. Martinez, 93, died surrounded by her family and joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on, February 5, 2021.

Acela was born in San Ygnacio, Texas on September 9, 1927 to Alberto and Guadalupe Martinez. She moved to Laredo along with her brother Adrian in the 1940’s to attend school. Acela graduated from Martin High School in May of 1948 and remained in Laredo to care for her brother. Acela married Rodolfo Martinez, on April 22, 1956.

Acela and Rodolfo had three children: Blas Alberto, Angelica Acela, and Rodolfo Jr.
Acela’s loving spirit knew no bounds. She was a devoted wife and sister, loving mother, proud grandmother, and great grandmother. Acela was a woman who was much respected and was proud of her family heritage as being a direct descendant of Proceso Martinez from San Ygnacio, Texas. Relatives and friends would come to her for any questions on the Martinez Family tree. The family will miss her great cooking as she always made sure at family gatherings her children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren ate their favorites. From tamales, cabrito in sangre, capirotada to a simple cake she would make with the frosting always from scratch, and pineapple or pecan empanadas.

She was preceded in death by her husband Rodolfo Martinez, her parents, Alberto and Guadalupe Martinez, grandson Gerardo Dominico Sanchez and sister Adelfa (Rodolfo) Espinoza; her in-laws, Blas and Elvira Martinez, Roberto (Hilda) Martinez, Maria Elena Martinez.

Left to cherish her memory are her children, Blas Alberto (Maria Elena) Martinez, Angelica Acela (Gerardo) Sanchez, Rodolfo Martinez, Jr. (Dinorah). Grandchildren Rebecca (David) Cabello, Blas Alberto Martínez Jr., José Alberto Sánchez, Christina Acela Sánchez, Alejandra Martínez, Lorena Martínez and Verónica Martínez. Great grandchildren Roselynn Reyes, Kristian Reyes Jr., Blas Alberto Martinez III; brother, Adrian Martinez and sisters-in-law, Elvira (Alejandro) Gutierrez and Manuela (Ernesto +) Barton.

Pallbearers will be – Blas Alberto Martinez, Gerardo Sanchez, Rodolfo Martinez Jr. Rebecca M. Cabello, Blas Alberto Martínez Jr., José Alberto Sánchez, Alejandra Martínez and Roselynn Reyes.

Honorary pallbearers will be – Christina Acela Sanchez, Lorena Martinez and Veronica Martinez, Kristian Reyes Jr., Blas Alberto Martinez III.

The family would like to extend their most heartfelt gratitude to her caregivers, Maria Guadalupe Rodriguez Ramirez, Blanca Delgado Puente, Christy Puente Reyes and Soyla Martinez Flores.
