Lupita was born on October 3rd, 1935 in Grants and raised in El Rancho, New Mexico. After high school she met her husband Ernest Martinez and they moved to La Puebla where they raised 3 children, Michael, Diane and Patrick.

Lupita was a beautiful, kind and loving woman that brought light to all those that she encountered. She had the most amazing smile and created a safe and loving space for her family and friends. She was a genius in the kitchen and her family always looked forward to whatever treats she had waiting for them. She always had a smile on her face and made a person feel so loved and welcome in her home. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family even if it was just sitting around and talking. The light she shared is still shining through all those she loved.
