LUCIA S. MARTINEZ, age 86 of Las Cruces entered eternal life Saturday, March 31, 2012 at La Posada – Mesilla Valley Hospice. She was born January 18, 1926 in Canutillo, Texas to Jose and Francisca Valdez Silva.

Grandma Lucy, as she was fondly known, had the ability to turn a dollar into ten, living meagerly on a widow's mite. She leaves behind a legacy of faith in God and hard work, not only to her own posterity but also to all who knew her. She was often seen sitting on the front porch with the neighborhood children reading stories of Jesus to them. She knew personally the power of faith, repentance and forgiveness. We rejoice at the knowledge that she now is in the presence of the Lord.

Survivors include two sons, Christopher G. Martinez (Sandra) and Michael J. Martinez (Jenn); six daughters, Edna Zieski, Nellie Estrada (Charlie), Rene Rosales (Johnny), Delia Flowers (Stanley), Celestina "Tina" Madrid and Carla S. Martinez; three sisters, Eusebia Mark, Mary Lou Benavidez and Eva Camunez. Other survivors include 28 grandchildren, 36 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild, as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband, Ernesto B. Martinez, sister, Josie Orvis and brother, Salvador Silva.

Cremation has taken place and inurnment of cremains will take place at a later date.
