Obituary for Ester A. Martinez

Ester A. Martinez, 89, of Fostoria, received her angel wings at 9:35 am Sunday June 2, 2019 at her home surrounded by her family, where she wanted to be.

Ester was born July 8, 1929 in Harlingen, TX to the late Gregorio and Olivia (Flores) Anez. She married Benino H. “Benny” Martinez Sr October 15, 1949 in Pandora and he died April 26, 2014.

Surviving are five children, Martha M. “Marti” (Scott Hossler Sr.) Martinez, Tiffin, Emma “Emmy” (Max) Mendoza Jr., Fostoria, Estella Martinez, Fostoria, Eleanor “Mona” (the late Jimmy) Parker, Fostoria and Ben Martinez Jr., Fostoria; 12 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren and one expecting in July; 14 great-great grandchildren; daughter in law, Janie Martinez, Fostoria; brothers and sisters, Alisia Martinez, Fostoria, Celia Galviz, Texas, Elvia (Jesus) Guzman, Texas, Noe Anez, Texas, Sam Castillo, New York, Theodora (Raul) Anguiano, Florida and Daniel Castillo, New York. She was preceded in death by a son, Michael “Moose” Martinez (2005); two grandsons, Miguel Bernal Jr. and Scott Hossler Jr.; two brothers, Ruben and David Anez; and sisters, Aurora Villarreal, Ulalia and Ofelia Anez.

Ester was an amazing woman, loving, yet she laid the law down. She retired as the head cook at Good Shepherd Home, Fostoria after 25 years of service. She was a member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church and its Guadalupe Society. She was a generous volunteer for her church and community. She enjoyed cooking Mexican food for St. Wendelin’s Festival and her family. She will be dearly missed but Ester’s spirit will forever glow.


Visitation is Wednesday June 5, 2019 from 1-3 & 6-8 p.m. at HOENING & SON FUNERAL HOME 133 W. Tiffin Street, Fostoria. Funeral service is 11:00 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home with Rev. Todd Dominique and Pastor Tony Redick, presiding. Burial will follow in St. Wendelin Cemetery. A luncheon will then be served in St. Wendelin Parish Hall.

Memorial contributions are suggested to Fostoria Sharing Kitchen or St. Wendelin’s Guadalupe Society.
