Evette Martinez passed away on March 24, 2022, at the age of 33. She was a loving daughter, companion, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend who will be deeply missed.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Maria De Jesus Martinez; maternal grandparents, Maria Elida Garcia and Jesus Garcia; and paternal grandparents, Jose Maria Martinez and Carlota S. Martinez; also, maternal aunts and uncles: Adelaida Smithwick, Francisco Garcia, Juan Garcia, Gilbert Herrera, Apolonio Herrera, and Jesus Garcia Jr.; and Nephew, Mark Garcia Jr.

Evette enjoyed music and she enjoyed singing and dancing with her children and grandchildren. She cherished all moments spent with her children, grandkids, and family sitting around telling stories and jokes laughing and bonding at family get-togethers and cook outs. Oh how she loved to cook a good meal for her loved ones.
What she will always be remembered for the most was her enormous and generous big beautiful heart.
Her love was so grand and open for all who knew her. She was so much like her mother, Maria Martinez. Evette would always take care of anyone who needed her to, she was incredibly selfless and would give you the shirt off of her back if you needed it more. She was so very strong willed and strong hearted; one of the most capable, loving, and enduring and she was very witty and humorous. Evette's smile and laugh would light up an entire room and bring a childlike innocence and loving presence. She has truly touched many and will be greatly missed and forever seen as an angel in heaven's embrace.
