Martha Isella Mendoza (née Diaz), 55, of Brownsville, Texas passed away on Monday, January 31, 2022. Martha was born on May 6, 1966, to Victorio and Virginia Diaz. Raised alongside her six siblings, Martha was known for her loyalty and devotion to them. Throughout her life, Martha grew to become a loving, kind, and generous person.

As a wife to Raul Mendoza, she was both devoted and supportive. As a mother to Luis Fernando, Raul Alejandro, and Erick, she was both caring and nurturing. To her nieces and nephews, she often served as a second mother and a safe harbor when things got difficult for them.
