In loving memory of Juanita Louise Martinez-Kramer, who was born on May 13, 1961
and left a mark on all who knew her. Juanita departed on December 16, 2023, at the age
of 62, after facing breast cancer.
Born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Juanita was the cherished daughter of Frank
Martinez and Elanor Martinez. Her pursuit of knowledge led her to the University of New
Mexico, where she earned both her bachelor's and master's degrees in business.
In the symphony of her life, she found harmony in marriage to Bill Kramer, with whom
she shared a profound bond while nurturing and guiding their two beloved children,
Joshua Kramer, and Noelle Kramer. Her legacy as a loving and devoted wife and mother
will forever remain in their hearts.
Juanita’s professional journey was marked by three decades of service to the state of
New Mexico, as well as being a landlord. Her dedication and diligence were unwavering,
leaving an unforgettable imprint on all she worked with.
An explorer at heart, Juanita embraced the world with open arms, embarking on
adventures that spanned continents. Her spirited travels, from backpacking across
Europe in her early 20s, to continuing to travel around the world with her family
throughout her life.
Beyond her professional and personal pursuits, Juanita’s generous spirit led her to
selflessly volunteer for various organizations in Albuquerque.
She was a devoted mother, wife, daughter, sister, and soon to be grandmother. Her
absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt but her memory will continue to inspire
and guide those who were fortunate enough to have known her.
In her departure, Juanita leaves behind a legacy of resilience, kindness, and unwavering
love. Her presence will be eternally missed but her spirit will live on in the hearts of all
who were privileged to have been part of her remarkable journey.
