Martha enjoyed watching the Food Network Channel, and then trying some of the recipes with her family. She especially loved Christmas time, where she would bake an enormous amount of goodies to share with all, accompanied by decorating her home. She enjoyed Rock and Roll music especially from the 60’s. Martha was very family oriented. Loved hosting and attending family gathering and brought joy and laughter to them all. One of her greatest joys was being Grandma to her lovely granddaughter, Isabella. Martha and Hector were longtime parishioners of St. John of God Church, having raised their family there.
