Maria Victoria (Mary V.) Martinez was born November 17, 1930 to Samuel Grant and Beatrice Romero in Raton. She passed away on January 11, 2011 in Colorado Springs. She married the love of her life Ernie, on September 4, 1949. Together they shared many happy years. Throughout the years, we have treasured the memories of mom and dad; him playing the guitar and both singing “How much is that doggie in the window” and “Are you mine?”, while mom made tortillas. Maria and Ernie had six children, 3 boys and 3 girls, Ernest Lee, Dee, Sol, Samuel, Theresa, and Susie.
Over the years, Maria worked at a number of local businesses including the original Miner’s Hospital where she was a nurse assistant. She waited tables at the Colt Restaurant, was a paramutual ticket sales cashier at the La Mesa Park. She worked on the line soldering radio parts at ARF and as a line worker at Erie Scientific, but Marias most important job was being a Mom, grandmother and great-grandmother. She has been a true inspiration for each of us.
Maria was preceded in death by her parents, Sam and Beatrice, her step-father Juan Valdez, husband Ernest, Son Ernest Le, brother Roger, brothers in Law Albert and Desi, sister-in-law Lydia and grandsons Basilio Marquez and John Paul Quintana.
