July 21, 1936 – July 27, 2018
Fidela Abreu Martinez, 82, of Altamonte Springs, Florida passed away at her home on July 27th, 2018 of natural causes. She was born July 21st, 1936 in Yabucoa, Puerto Rico to the late Manuel Abreu and Paula Lopez. Fidela is predeceased by her husband Santiago Martinez, who died October 27th, 2004 and a son, Rene who died when he was 4 years old. She was a loving mother to her living son, Luis, his wife Yamilly and their son Danny and also her living son, Noel, his wife Lori and their daughter Renee; as well as survived by many siblings, nieces and nephews.
Fidela’s wishes were to be cremated and spend eternity among the seas, so her ashes will be spread in Tampa Bay at a later date. She also never liked to be center of attention and therefore per her wishes, there was no funeral service. Her sons had a mass for her at Saint Mary Magdalen Catholic Church to celebrate her life with family and friends.
Fidela was a Christian woman of gratitude and was very giving and caring. She loved to travel, spend time with family and friends, was self-educated, gave great advice, was an amazing cook and seamstress, and always gave the best hugs. We will carry her memory in our hearts forever.
