LOS SAENZ / ROMA. Martina Saenz, 88, entered into eternal rest on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at Mission Regional Hospital in Mission, Texas. She was born in Los Saenz, Texas on September 12, 1927 to Agapito Saenz and Isabel Garza. At 10 years at age, her widowed father married Andrea Escobar Trevino. After graduating from Rio Grande City High School, she attended and attained a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Education from Texas A&I University in Kingsville.

She was a lifelong member of the Starr County Teachers Association and the Retired Teachers of Texas Association. She was a member of Holy Family Catholic Church of Los Saenz and the Sacred Heart Society.

She was preceded in death by her parents and stepmother Andrea Saenz, and also by Armando Saenz and Amparo Saenz Benavides, with whom she was raised.
