Martina E. Flores was lovingly welcomed by the Lord on April 30, 2021 into His home of eternal rest. With her last breath of life, she graciously accepted at the age of 93.
Originally from Honduras, Martina came to the United States in 1961 and raised her children in the New Orleans area. A longtime resident of Metairie, LA, she was a passionate and devoted Christian who dedicated much of her life to the church.
The matriarch of a large and adoring family, Martina was preceded in death by her husband, Leopold “Papa” Flores; her son, Herman Hernandez; and her grandson, Raul Duron.
Martina is survived by her nine children: Alba Rivas (Oscar), Norma Hernandez, Doris Zegarra, Sonia Duron, Noemi Milan, Ruth Flores (Walter), Nolvia Evans (Bill), Flora Alvarado, Edgar Flores, twenty-seven Grandchildren, and numerous Great-Grandchildren, Great-Great-Grandchildren, and extended family. While her presence will be greatly missed, her memories will always be with us.
