January 10, 1930 - March 28, 2010


Martinez, Alice Jubala, of San Juan Capistrano, passed away on Palm Sunday peacefully at 5:15 a.m. Sunday morning after being surrounded by her entire family all week.

Memorial Services: 4/7 7:00pm
Rosary/Viewing 4/8 10:00am Mass Mission San Juan Capistrano Basilica, followed by graveside Burial at Ascension Cementary.

She was born in Mesilla Park, New Mexico Jan. 10, 1930. The oldest daughter of 8 siblings. She is survived by her sisters Esther, Julia, Terri and brother Bobby. She will now join her mom Sally Dominguez and dad Julio Jubala of whom she never quite got over his sudden death when she was only 4. She also lost her brothers Willie and Manual when they were both only 50 and just recently her sister Rita. She is survived by her two daughters, Jeannie and Sandy and her youngest son Larry. Our brother Fred passed away last February 16, of ’09 which really took a toll on her.

She has two beautiful granddaughters, Azsha and Alanna and 4 grandsons, Garrett, Darren, Trevor and Gabriel. She very close to her nieces & nephews, fondly know as tia Alicia or auntie/aunt Alice & talked on the phone weekly with them as well as her sister Esther & brother Bobby, and brother-in-law Frank. She was very proud of her Indian-Hindu heritage & that her father came from Punjabi, India when he was only 13. She was also so proud of how everyone always thought was she was 10 years younger than she was and everyone knew her from her red hair.

This last 16 months was tough on her, losing her son Fred suddenly in Feb. at the young age of 52 and our dad in Oct. of ’08. Mom and dad seemed inseparable at times. They grew up miles apart in New Mexico and were destined to meet each other in Los Angeles when dad’s godfather turned out to be mom’s stepfather. She married Dad when she was 16 and he had just got out of the Navy at the young age of 19. They were married on November 9th, 1946. The times people have spent with her, they would always talk about dad and the love she had for him, so it is comforting to know that they are together again. Mom adored dad, you could see it on her face. She’s with him now, happy and not in pain.

What a whirlwind and a shock. She went in for an operation Sunday evening & the doctors told her ‘Do you understand you might not make it?’ We didn’t know that until the doctors shared that story. She was pretty strong and hung on so the relatives could see her. We always said she was a strong determined woman. All the doctors and nurses said it was a miracle she hung on through the week, but it was through prayers and faith. She was always saying the rosary. We found two rosaries in her car, one by her bed, one by her favorite chair in the living room, and one hanging in the entrance to the house.

She was a special lady, loved by many and will be missed by many.
