Maggie Martinez was born on July 26, 1957, to Marcelino and Raquel (Garcia) Rodriguez in Henagar, Alabama. She married Santos Martinez on November 9, 1973, in Crosbyton, Texas, at San Jose Catholic Church. Maggie attended Crosbyton schools.  She worked at Little Bull Drive-In, where she met her future husband, Santos. Maggie was employed with United Supermarkets for 14 years and then took an office position at Caprock Home Health Supply and then as an Administrative Assistant for five years at Goodwill Industries.

Maggie had a very loving personality; she enjoyed being with her family, especially on holidays. She enjoyed singing Christian music with her husband and sitting outside to enjoy the fresh air. Maggie adored her daughter Jessica and never went a day without talking to her, she loved her son in law Joe and always made sure he was doing well.  Her greatest treasures in life were when her grandson Chris was born and six years later when her granddaughter Hailee “sissy girl” was born. She adored her grandkids and loved them with lots of hugs and kisses.

She loved going to “work” as she called it –BINGO, she loved doing word search puzzles, watching the 700 Club, and participating spiritually in daily mass. She would pray her Divine Mercy at 8 am and 2 pm every day. She enjoyed being with her sisters and brother playing Loteria. Maggie was loved by many, and she never knew a stranger, she will be truly missed.

Survivors include her husband of 46 years, Santos; daughter, Jessica Contreras, and husband, Joe; grandchildren, Christopher and Hailee Contreras; siblings Rachel Cervantes, Becky Cantu and husband, Augie; Rosa Martinez, Mary Guzman, and husband, Jesse; Marta Pena and husband, Sebastian; Mamie Tells and husband, Robert; brother, Victor Rodriguez, and wife, Isabel.

  1. My deepest heartfelt sympathy! Maggie was a sweet and beautiful sister. She was always smiling and enjoying life. I will truly miss her because she touched my life in so many ways as we all grew up together. After my mother passed away, she always had special stories to tell about her mother-in-law. I am so happy that she always felt welcomed into her new family. The way she always pronounced my name would make me feel identified by her in a Special way. I pray that the Lord Jesus Christ bless her soul as she reunites with our love ones that have gone before us. That they together sing “Alleluia to the Lord”!!!
    Rest in Peace, Maggie,
    Love you Always,
    Your brother,

  2. The video tribute is beautiful. I met Maggie through my college roommate Roxanne Cantu. I would go home from TTU every weekend to Crosbyton and spend time with this beautiful family- – the Cantu / Rodriguez families. Over time I got to meet so many family members. And play BINGO with them all. I have the best memories of spending time with this wonderful family. Maggie always greeted me with a hug and a kiss. Her loving spirit, making sure I was always fed and cared for. Always made me feel like part of the family. My deepest condolences to Santos, Jessica and the whole Rodriguez Clan. We love you all, Alonzo, Mari and the kids—- Garza’s from Corpus Christi

  5. Maggie was my first friend. I remember her, Mamie, Elva, and myself the four of us would love coming to play on the courthouse steps. I am right now looking at those same steps and see 4 little girls playing. One evening Maggie & Mamie were walking Elva and I home it got cold that evening We shared the same coat.
