Juanita Martinez, 65, passed away on May 26, 2023. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister. Juanita dedicated her life to her family and will always be remembered for the love she gave to each of them.
Born on January 8, 1958, Juanita lived a fulfilling life as a stay-at-home mom. Although she never pursued a career outside the home, her work as a homemaker and mother was more important than anything else. She married Pablo Villalpando and together they shared 24 wonderful years of marriage.
Juanita enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren whom she adored dearly. She loved attending church services, going out to eat with friends and family, shopping and traveling. Juanita was an adventurous soul who never let anything hold her back from experiencing new things in life. Most of all she always made sure to get her “selfie” with her food.
The viewing service for Juanita Martinez will take place on May 30th at Parker - Ashworth Funeral Home in Kaufman from 6 PM to 8 PM. The funeral service will be held on May 31st at Iglesia de Cristo in Kaufman at 11 AM with the burial immediately following at Kaufman Cemetery.
