Juana Lucy Jaquez

July 3, 1931 — November 10, 2023

Juana Lucy Jaquez, 92, of Odessa, passed away Friday November 10, 2023, surrounded by her family at her home. 

Lucy was born in Waco, Texas to Jose Guerrero and Ascencion Garza Guerrero on July 3, 1931. Lucy married her love Macedonio Jaquez in 1951, they had four children and remained married until his passing in 1968.  She then found a devoted companion with Thomas Martinez Sr. in 1987, they were inseparable until his passing in 2011. Lucy was a devoted wife and the most loving mother to her children her entire life.  Lucy was the best conversationalist, and she had the most infectious laughter.   She enjoyed embroidering as her hobby, loved company, listening to Spanish music and dancing.  Her door was always open to anyone who needed advice, comfort, or a little time to reminisce with her.  She remembered everything and everyone.  Her best friend for the last 15 years has been a sweet little Shih Tzu dog named Chiquita.  

Lucy is also preceded in death by Sisters Amelia Trinidad, Mary Guerrero, and stepson Thomas Martinez Jr.

Lucy is survived by her children Christine Medrano, Terry & Eddie Roman, Margaret Jaquez and Salvador & Tina Jaquez.  Stepdaughters include Mary, Linda, Angelita, Irma, Teresa; stepsons are Arturo, Edward, and Raymundo; sisters: Lela, Sally & Alice, of Odessa; Gloria of California, and brother Joe of New Mexico.

Lucy also leaves to cherish her memory 10 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren, 27 great-great grandchildren and 1 great-great-great grandchild.
