Teresa Martinez Tijerina, age 67, of Blue Mound, Texas was called to her eternal home to join
her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, December 6th, surrounded by her loved ones. Teresa
courageously battled liver disease for many years, with her husband of 41 years, Joe Alfred
Tijerina Sr. by her side. Teresa was a loving daughter, aunt, wife, mother and friend, who leaves
behind a long list of loved ones who will never be able to fill the void that her departure has left
in our hearts. She will be remembered for her obnoxiously loud laugh, crazy sense of humor,
and her unapologetic smothering of love that she freely gave to anyone who would let her.
Teresa and Alfred’s two children, daughter Terri Rose Tijerina (McGhee) and son Joe Alfred
Tijerina Jr. were the light of her life. She gave everything that she had to her children, and loved
them unconditionally to the very end. Her grandchildren, three boys and one precious girl,
meant the world to her, and she absolutely adored having them around, filling her home with
loud sounds of laughter and playful joy. Joe III, Ernest Amare, Stevphen and Arianna Rose held
such a special place in their Wecca’s heart; she was the absolute best Grandma in the whole
Teresa was one of four children of Lawrence & Nancy Martinez; she was the baby of the family,
surprising everyone with her arrival. She is now joining her big brothers, Lawrence Martinez Jr.
and Aurelio (Earl) Martinez in heaven, along with her mother and father. Teresa leaves behind
her beloved sister, Rosie Sena, who has lived her life side by side with her, through all the good
and bad that life threw their way. Rosie was her only natural sister, but at the age of eight years
old, her oldest brother Lawrence Jr. brought home a beautiful woman named Mary Ann, who
formed a loving bond with her that lasted a lifetime, building a special sisterhood that Teresa
treasured. During her 41 year marriage to the love of her life, Joe Alfred Tijerina Sr., she also
gained several brothers and sisters that loved her immensely. She even found her “twin sister”,
Gracie Tijerina, who shared a birthday with her and became her twin flame in life. So many
family members loved Teresa tremendously, and life just won’t be the same without her fiery
spirit. There aren’t enough words to express what Teresa meant to her family; she was the
flavor that spiced our lives; the silly that we all needed to smile; the light that kept us out of the
dark. Teresa will be missed forever and that void will never be filled; but she gave us enough of
her to keep with us until we meet again.
We love you Momma, so very much, more than we can convey with words. You were amazing,
kind, loving, fun, silly, playful, creative, forever a dreamer; I’m sorry that your life was cut short.
We will live our lives for you, we will never forget you!
Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 9, 2023, from 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM at Roberts - Martinez Funeral Home followed by a Celebration of Life at 2:00 PM.
