Rebecca (Grandma Becky) Marie Martinez, 70
ALAMOSA — Becky Marie Martinez went to her eternal rest with her Heavenly Father early Saturday morning, Jan. 18, 2020. She was born in Monte Vista on Oct. 21, 1949 to Joe Procopio Medina and Eufelia (Felix) Medina (Naranjo).
Becky was a dedicated mother, grandma, great grandma, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. She loved her family dearly, and they loved and cared for her selflessly. Becky enjoyed listening to her gospel music and sermons. She was a dedicated believer in God and ready to go with Him. She enjoyed helping whenever she could and was a big part of our reunions. She made gift bags for her church. Her greatest joy was her family, who took her out with them to their outings. Becky had a sense of humor and lived her life to the fullest and didn’t complain about her illnesses. She was so ready to go with her Lord and Savior.
Becky is survived by her daughters, Lynette (David), Karen (Juan) Majalca; grandchildren Olivia, Cristina, Amy, Blanca Cano, Juan (Clarissa), Ben (RyAnna), Nancy (Sam) Montoya, and Maribel Majalca, Kenny Jr., Andrew, Ashley Martinez, Anthony, Angelo and Orion Montoya; step grandchildren Brian and Britany Martinez; great grandchildren Mia Majalca, Avery Cano, Manuel Robles, Kilie Aaragon, Aquiles, Romelo, Leo and Miguel. Also survived by sisters, Juanita Archuleta, Esther (Cecil) Sewell, Annie (Roberto) Segura, Orlinda (Maxi) Ventura, and brother, Art (Ursula) Medina, and very special cousin Joyce (Mark) Renshaw.
Becky was preceded in death by her husband, Ben; son, Kenny; mom, dad; sisters, Gloria Montoya, Verna Retana and Carol Campa; brother, Thomas Medina, and special friend Leo Montoya.
Becky will be greatly missed by us all, but we know she is in a far better place. There will be a 2 p.m. service for Becky at “The Door” at 1300 West 12th on Highway 285 near “Family Dollar.” A dinner will follow at the “Knights of Columbus” at 812 8th Street.
