Staying true to the Promise of our Lord Jesus Christ until the very end, Martha Muñoz was received in the loving arms of our Heavenly Father on May 5, 2009 at 12:30 a.m. She passed away in Del Rio, Texas at the age of 83 of complications related to a stroke and brain hemorrhage. In her last days of life, she was surrounded by her son Abed Muñoz, her daughter in law Claudia Muñoz, and her two granddaughters, Faith Abigail Muñoz and Claudia Elizabeth Muñoz and as well as her loving pets, pinky and pecky.
Martha is remembered as a prayer warrior and an avid follower of world events. She enjoyed dogs as well as growing plants. However, her greatest passion was to talk about Jesus to everyone that surrounded her, especially praying for all those that were sick and in financial need. Immigrant rights as wells as those who had been incarcerated were her constant focus in life, especially children that came from impoverished homes or where raised by single parents, such as was her own life experience.
Martha passed peacefully in the confidence of knowing in whom she had deposited her faith and heart during her life.
Her only son, Abed and his wife Claudia and their two daughters, Faith and Claudia Muñoz, survive her.
A special thanks to the staff of Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo, Texas and Del Rio Nursing & Rehabilitation Center of Del Rio for their support during these last few weeks. However, a special thanks to both Hospice of San Angelo and Del Rio, Texas, their support, care and comfort were invaluable for both Martha Muñoz and those that survived her.
After cremation, as was her final wish, her ashes will be taken to Rio Chico, Durango, Mexico, a peaceful place in the mountains of the Sierra Madre, where she lived a peaceful time in her childhood.
In lieu of flower donations, we ask that all those that were touched by her life contribute to the Children’s Ministry of First Assembly of God in Andrews, Texas, so that the next generation of children may grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
