On June 7, 2021, our mom Martha Riojas went to be with the lord. She faced every challenge with grace and the faith she had in Jesus. She was truly resilient.
Martha was born to Louisa and Antonio on Feb. 2, 1963. She was brought home to her family in Laurel, Montana, where she was raised. She was the baby sister of Antonio, Regina, Ramon, Gabriel, Matias, Mary, Jose, Susan, Juanita, Julia, Marcos, Danny, Bella, Sandy and Tino. She was cherished by each one of her brothers and sisters.
Because of the love Pastor Peterson and his family extended to her and her family, she learned to love the Lord and grew up singing in the Assembly of God Church in Laurel.
After graduating from Laurel High School, she went on to attend Trinity Bible College in Ellendale, North Dakota.
Her greatest joy was being the mother to her children Concepcion, Carlos, Brea, Calsey, Teanna, and Julianna. Her greatest loves are her grandbabies Xavior, Reiley, Djibril, Cecilia, Kareem, Kamil, Matteo, Carolena, and McKenna.
Her affection extended far past her many nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, and reached anyone she ever met.
Although we will miss her greatly, we know that she is rejoicing in her heavenly home and singing praises to Jesus. She is now able to look down on her babies and SEE them grow.
