Ms. Elvia G. MartinezDear Colleagues,

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of a retired staff member.

Ms. Elvia G. Martinez passed away on Saturday, May 11. She worked from February 2007 to December 2012 as a departmental secretary in the School of Business. She was proud of her son, Sgt. Mario A. Martinez Jr., who is a member of the Campus Police Department.

“I have worked with Elvia at UTB and in the private sector for more than 30 years,” said Dr. Thomas Coyle, Assistant Professor and Chair of the Department of Management and Marketing at the School of Business. “She was a dedicated employee, a fine Christian lady and a mother to everybody.”

A rosary has been scheduled for today at 7pm, at Trevino Funeral Home on Old Port Isabel Road. The funeral will be held Tuesday at 10am at Christ the King Church on Southmost Road.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Martinez family.
