Martina Lujan Molinar was born October 24, 1948 in Carlsbad, New Mexico to Cecilio H. And Paula (Barraza) Lujan. She was raised in Malaga, New Mexico and graduated from Carlsbad High School. Martina married the love of her life, Ysidro C. Molinar on February 28, 1970 in Carlsbad, NM. She was employed by Lakeview Christian Home working in the kitchen. She also enjoyed working at Golden Services as a CNA. Martina found her passion taking care of children through the CYFD program. She continued watching children in the family and friends of family. The last baby she cared for, her great niece Genessa Hernandez, was a source of great pride and love in her life. Martina enjoyed many activities, especially those that allowed her to express her love, creativity, and strength in her faith. A few of her favorite things were walking with her husband, cooking for her loved ones, and playing cards with her Compadres. She had a strong faith in God as her time grew closer to meet him so did her faith and love for her Father. She was devoted to praying her rosary daily together with her loving husband Ysidro.
