Guadalupe (Sánchez) Martínez

August 16, 1948 — August 5, 2021

With her loving husband and family by her side, Guadalupe Sanchez Martinez peacefully passed from this life the evening of August 5, 2021 at her home in La Paloma, Texas.  She was born to the late Guadalupe Sanchez and Higinia Capetillo Sánchez on August 16, 1948 in Robstown, Texas.

Guadalupe was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She was a wonderful homemaker who loved cooking for her family.  She was also a very talented seamstress who sewed for family and friends.  Her family will always treasure the quilts that she loving made for them.  In her leisure time, Guadalupe enjoyed playing bingo, trying her luck at scratch-off tickets, and completing crossword puzzles.  She was a devout Catholic and a parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in La Paloma.

Guadalupe’s family wishes to express their special thanks to her daughters, Velma and Valerie, for their continuous, loving care during her most difficult times.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Guadalupe and Higinia C. Sánchez, and a son, Jesús Martínez.

Left to treasure Guadalupe’s memory is her husband, Alejandro Bejaran Martínez; her children, Velma (Ramiro) Garcia, Alejandro Martínez Jr., Alcario Martínez, Alejos (Juanita) Martínez, Adán Martínez, Abel (Cecilia) Martínez, Velinda Martínez, and Valerie Martínez.
