Ernie was born to Carmen & Anastacio Moreno in Cameron, Texas but she was raised in Bryan by her grandmother and uncle. She met and married Norberto Martinez from Chriseman, Texas at a dance. He was the love of her life for 48 years.
She worked for GTE/Verizon for 17 years and St. Joseph Hospital for 20 plus years. She loved cooking, dancing, crocheting, doing ceramics, but most of all taking care of her family. She was an avid sports fan and loved watching her novelas. She never met a stranger and was always willing to help those in need. She loved feeding anyone that visited her home and no one ever left hungry. She loved decorating her home for all of the holidays.
She is preceded in death by her husband, Norberto Martinez, her brother, Joe Trevino, and her parents.
Ernie is survived by her sons, Robert Martinez of Houston and Richard “Kiki” Martinez of Bryan; her two grandsons Preston and Evan Martinez of Bryan. One sister, Maria Consuelo Garza of Houston, sisters in law, Mary Martinez of Chriseman, Margaret and Fred Cruz, Hope and Phillip Rosas all of Caldwell and brother in law, Inez and Juliana Martinez of Bryan. Numerous nieces, nephews, godchildren, and friends.
