Anyone who meet Marta liked her, she was known for her loving and giving heart, fierce independence, fearless aspirations, and many interests. She always treated everyone with respect, kindness, and believed in giving to others less fortunate, she was never afraid to learn or try new things. She had a career in aerospace, pursued education in Airline industry and real estate. She didn't let her age or upbringing define or limit her. This was a huge inspiration to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was proud of them for pursing education, their goals, and military service. <br />
Marta loved to cook and bake. The love and passion was felt and savoured in each dish. Everyone had their favorite dish, from tortillas to peach cobbler, from fudge to enchiladas, and she loved and insisted on making it every time she saw them. <br />
She had a great relationship with her Lord and Savior and would share her faith and pray for others any chance she got. Wherever she went out, she would embrace people, offering a hug or "God Bless you" and she wholeheartedly meant it. She truly wanted others to be happy and feel loved. The world lost a great person, inspiration, and wonderful soul when she left. We will miss her and love her always.
