Judith M. Ruiz, age 69, was called home to be with the Lord on January 10, 2018, at Jennie Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Texas, surrounded by her loved ones.
Judith was born on March 11, 1948 in Gonzales, Texas, to the late Teodoro and Manuela Martinez. She spent most of her early years in Port Lavaca and later moved to Texas City where she spent the remaining years of her life.
Judith was a passionate woman in everything she did in her life. She was a very loving and giving person while trying to help as much and as best she could. She always hoped for a better tomorrow. Those are some of the qualities that made her the loving daughter, mother, aunt, grandma, and great-grandma that she was.
She is survived by her children, James Martinez, Monica Martinez, Joseph Martinez wife Theresa, Jimmy Martinez wife Sandra. Sisters Janie Sanchez, Mary Almanzar, Delia Martinez, Alejandra Martinez, Irma Ysaguirre, Patsy Prince, Joann Lozano; brothers Martin Martinez, Teodoro Martinez Jr., Robert Molina; grandchildren Erica Martinez, Roberta Martinez, Joey Martinez, Jerel Zayas, Jevin Martinez, Jasolin Croushore, Kadri Delgado, Kiana Martinez, Byrce Martinez, Veronica Rivas, Peter Lozano, Angelica Lozano, and several great grandkids; also, numerous nephews and nieces.
Friends are invited to join us for a Rosary in her memory on Wednesday, January 17, 2018 at Carnes Funeral Home, 3100 Gulf Freeway in Texas City from 4 pm-8pm.
