Janie Rodriquez, 62, of Bryan, passed away on Friday, February 6, at home in Bryan. A memorial service celebrating her life will be 5:30pm, Thursday, February 12, at St. Michael’s Episcopal Academy Chapel, 2402 South College Avenue, Bryan. Services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral Home and Crematory.
Janie was born to Macario and Erlinda Revilla Martinez, in Chrismon, Texas in Burleson County. Janie was a lady who thrived by giving and sharing. She made sure that the elders in the family were cared for and happy. She truly enjoyed spending her time with family, especially her grandchildren. Janie was always looking for treasured items and was often seen around town at garage sales bringing home treasures from the heart to share with her family. She was an avid gardener, sharing many of her flowers and plants with family and friends. She was employed at HEB until her health prevented her from greeting her customers with a warm embracing smile. She was Catholic in faith. Janie’s open heart was sustained by the love she shared with her husband, Ernest. They were best friends, life partners, and wholeheartedly supported each other in the joys and sorrows of their lives. Together they nurtured and provided stability for their family and taught the values of responsibility, love of family, service to country, the healing power of laughter, and the triumph of love over all difficulties. Her presence will be truly missed.
Preceding her in death are her father Macario Martinez; her brother Bonifazio Martinez; and her brother-in-law Ruben Gomez.
She is survived by her husband of 41 years, Ernesto Rodriquez Jr.; her sons Adrian Rodriquez and wife Araceli, Michael Anthony “Turtle” Rodriquez and wife Ana; her daughters Lynn Rodriquez and husband Jessie Molina Jr., and Naomi Rodriquez; her brothers Macario Martinez Jr. “Mack” and wife Sally, Manual Martinez, and David Martinez; her sisters Mary Gomez and Elise Mixon and husband Perry; her mother Erlinda Revilla Martinez; her twelve grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; and a host of relatives and friends.
