Maria went to heaven on the morning of April 24, 2019, surrounded by love, her animals and her daughter Corrinna. She was born in Monte Vista, Colorado to Calletano Martinez and Maria Delia Vigil.

Maria grew up in Albuquerque, Nm and loved the road trips back to visit family and lifelong friends that still live there. She also didn't mind the stops at lottaburger to get her fix.

Maria is survived by her six children: Thomas, JoJo; Audrey, Corrinna, Christie, and Leslie; her grandson, Alexander whom she raised from birth; her only sister, Maria Ernestina Valdez.

Maria loved being outdoors. Fishing, bbq's, she loved springtime. She loved flowers. Gladiolas are her favorite flower. She was mama to everyone. There wasn't anyone that she didn't take in and love with all her heart.

She had a hardlife and made the best of it and did the best with the hand she was dealt. She made sure her kids were loved and taken care of to the best of her abilities.

She spent the last 20 years of her life raising her grandson and spending as much time as her little body let her with her family.

She loved her rides and ADVENTURES she and Corrinna would take as often as they could. She loved going on rides to Estes. Out to eat. Pasta was her absolute favorite food, and salsa.

She was little but mighty and is missed beyond words.

She was preceded in death by her parents and ex-husband Tommy Torres.

Visitation at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2019 followed by a Celebration of Light at 1:00 p.m., both at Stoddard Funeral Home, 3205 W. 28th Street, Greeley, Colorado.
