Carmen H. Martinez Salcido passed away quietly at home on February 12, 2023. She is preceded in death by her first husband Charles M. Martinez and second husband Zeferino Salcido, Son-in-law Andy Ballejos and Daughter-in-law Chris Martinez.
Despite her large family, Carmen always made time for everyone. She always provided support and love for her family. Carmen was a homemaker for 50+ years. She was a daycare provider for many years to children who still call her Grandma.
Carmen was a loving person to everyone. She was sweet, kind, patient and in her own way had a cute sense of humor. She loved butterflies, A&W Root Beer, The Price Is Right, music, dancing and long beautiful sunny days.
Carmen is survived by her 6 children, Charlene Ballejos, Debra Lachica (Miguel), Nina Melbourne (Pete), Charles Martinez Jr., Primo Martinez, Michael Martinez (Sara) and many grandchildren.
She will truly be missed by all.
