Tanya Martinez born February 9, 1979 has passed as of January 23, 2023. Leaving us unexpectedly at the young age of 43 in Albuquerque NM. Many would say she had an energetic and sensitive soul. Yet, still had the spirit of a fighter while being so wild and free. She lived life by her own rules, always moving with the wind and blazing trails with every path she took. Tanya also had a passion for fashion. Creativity so beautifully flowed through her. She always remained authentic to herself in every cycle of her life. Tanya also made it so easy for people to do the same around her.

Parents Gloria Apodoca and Anthony Martinez. Siblings Talaya Martinez, Francisco Martinez and Geraldo Martinez. Nieces Shaniya Martinez, Penelope Arana, Olivia Romero-Martinez.
