Martha Soriano Menendez was born on the 31st of July 1931. She was the second daughter born to Faustino (Flecha) Soriano and Dalia Bello Soriano.

Martha passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, peacefully in her sleep as God had planned it. All of our prayers were answered.

Martha was an amazing woman, mother, aunt and friend.

She was a natural caregiver and a force to be reckoned with. Loyal, all about her family, and she doted on us as long as her spirit allowed.

She will be fondly remembered always, especially during family gatherings and at Christmas dinners. Rest assured the family will continue to honor her and her father with family gatherings and festive Christmas dinners.

Martha was never happier than when she was in her kitchen preparing family dinners and when she was caring for her precious lilies that she inherited from her grandmother, La Vieja Lola Bello.

It fills our hearts just knowing that what she was seeking for in the last days of her life, she finally found -- all the sisters have been reunited.

We will miss you and we love you more than you can imagine.

Martha is survived by her children Jerry Rojas Sr. (Zenaida), Gilda Rojas (Dale), Yvette Valdez (Gerardo), and Gloria Sellers (George); grandchildren Jerry Rojas Jr. (Tammy) and Brandi Bishop (Brent); great-grandchildren Katelynn Rojas, Brent Bishop and Tia Celia Bello Diecidue; and niece Maida Garcia.

Graveside services will be held at 4 p.m. today, Friday, June 14, 2013, at Key West Cemetery. Please use the Margaret Street entrance.
