Priscilla Lou Martinez

April 26, 1942 — June 11, 2022

Beloved mother, sister, friend, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother, Priscilla Lou Martinez of Las Cruces went home to her Lord in the early hours of Saturday, June 11, 2022.

 

Born and raised in Socorro, New Mexico, she grew up to marry and raise seven children. She performed in a band with her brothers and remained a lifelong musician. She created and managed a successful insurance business through a long and fruitful career. Upon moving to Las Cruces, she started a ministry with her friends, a band called Connected2JC with whom she ministered to the homeless and imprisoned through music and outreach.  They raised funds, sponsored Christmas gift drives, and worked to feed the homeless population in Las Cruces.

 

Priscilla was preceded in death by her mother, Priscilla Valencia Chavez, her father, Lucian Chavez, husband, David Martinez, and brothers Abe and Richard Chavez. She is survived by her seven children: Marilyn Neyman, Diane Segura, Sandra Diaz, Ernest Martinez, Richard Martinez, David Arias, and Daryl Martinez, her brothers, Frank, Jim, and John Chavez and sisters, Fran Garcia and Esther Peralta, as well as 11 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great-grandchildren.

 

Priscilla's remains will be laid to rest at the National Veterans Cemetery in Santa Fe with her husband, David at 2:30 PM on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 following a memorial service at 11:00 AM at Vista Verde Memorial Park in Rio Rancho. Public viewings will be held July 11th from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM and July 12th from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM.

 

She is already missed so greatly by so many whose lives she touched and will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, forgiveness, and her great love for her Lord, for whom she did great things.
