February 9, 1934 – September 12, 2020
Tonia Martinez, age 86, of Phoenix, Arizona passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 12, 2020 in her home.
Tonia was born February 9, 1934 in Phoenix, Arizona to Isabel "Nana Chavela" Saldaña and Eulogio Martinez. She was married to Raul Figueroa Martinez for 55 years before he passed away in 2016.
Tonia was an adored wife, mother, and grandmother. She inspired many, providing her insight, healing nature, and straight forward - no filter - "tell is like it is" persona.
When she wasn't taking care of the family she enjoyed dancing, margaritas, and hitting jackpots at the casino!
Tonia is survived by her daughters and son, Tonie Jo Amaral, Lorraine Martinez, and Raul "Baby Hito" Martinez. She is also survived by her brother Mike Martinez, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and others whose lives Tonia touched.
Your love was limitless; you were a conqueror and a warrior! You will be missed.
