Adelina was born June 11, 1956, to Bernardino and Andrita Martinez in Amarillo. Lena, as she was known; loved playing Bingo, venturing out to Walmart, and drinking Big Red or Clamato. She was a loving and giving person, always lending a helpful hand to those in need. Lena would give you the clothes off her back, and furniture from her own home if she felt it would help someone else. She loved to babysit the family children and was known to most as “Wela”. Lena was very family oriented and remained very close to her siblings. She always looked forward to family gatherings and going on her “Sister Trips” each year. She loved to cook fresh tortillas and always fed anyone that came through her door; her love language was to serve others, and she lived that out through her lifetime. Lena had an extraordinary sense of humor and loved to make those around her laugh; she never met a stranger. Lena was a devoted mother, grandmother and sister always caring for her daughters and their families. Lena was preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Phyllis Roman.
Survivors include her five daughters, Cecilia Navarrete and husband Lance Patton of Plano, Amanda Navarrete and her life partner Taylor Arias of Amarillo, Maria Sanchez and her life partner Veronica of Amarillo, Candida Corbett and Gloria Pantoja-Chalfant; four sisters, Angelina Holdaway, Pauletta“Cica” Maestas, Camilla Craine and Juanita Romero-Baron; six brothers, Robert Martinez, Gilbert Martinez, Aguilino Martinez, Samuel Martinez, John Martinez and Dominic Diaz; nine grandchildren, Bobbi, Leah, Devin, Terrion, Tyra, Trey, Jocelyn, Breana and Jayden; one great granddaughter, “Baby Love” Payton Jones.
Wela will always be in our hearts and remembered always, “Everybody wants me”.
