Martha Alicia Soria

June 29, 1954 - May 26, 2013


Martha Alicia Soria, 58 of Mission Viejo, California, passed away on May 26, 2013 after a courageous and remarkable battle with pancreatic cancer. She passed in peace and comfort surrounded by her loving family.

She is survived by her husband Sergio of 31 years and her 3 boys, Sergio, Carlos, and Gabriel, and countless friends.

Martha was born on June 29, 1954 in Coalcoman, Michoacan to Daniel O. Avila and Maria Dolores Lua. Martha moved to Los Angeles at a young age and graduated from Roosevelt High School in 1972. She met her husband at the age of 27, fell instantly in love and was married by 28. She had 3 boys and moved to Mission Viejo to raise her family.

Martha had many hobbies. She enjoyed bowling in tournaments with her youngest son and socializing with anyone and everyone. Martha had an amazing aptitude for gardening. Her garden was always in bloom with vibrant roses and her kitchen was always in supply of fruits and vegetables. She was known by all to be an amazing cook; anyone who sat at her table left full and happy.

Martha was an unbelievably selfless person who lived her life to serve others. She raised her family and took care of her husband, but it didn’t stop there. Martha single-handedly took care of her Father, Mother, 2 aunts and 2 brothers in their elderly age and in time of illness. Martha’s natural ability to love and care inspired everyone she encountered. She was an angel living among men. She will be missed but her lessons and good nature will always live in our hearts.

  1. When I first started dating Martha’s oldest son Sergio, she wasn’t necessarily my biggest fan. I think it was hard for her to see someone else come into his life and love him as much as she did herself. But over the years, Martha has become like a second mother to me, letting me stay with her family when I moved to California, and caring for me as though I were her daughter. Although she was never officially my mother-in-law, I will always think of her as so.

    Martha is one of of the strongest women I have ever met. When she first got diagnosed with cancer, I watched her brave through difficult chemo treatments and always remain positive. She turned her life over to God and let him lead the way. She stayed active at home and continued to cook and clean, and take care of her mother who had fallen ill as well. When any friends or family would visit Martha would be in the kitchen all day making sure everyone was taken care of and well fed, no matter how she was feeling that day. Taking care of others was just in her nature.

    While it is very hard to imagine a world without her in it, I know it was her time to leave us. She is now without suffering and pain. She is now able to rest. I was fortunate to meet her son and am lucky to be a part of their family. She taught her boys well.

    I found out about a month ago that you had passed away two years ago. I am so sorry I couldn’t be there for you. I miss your friendship, I miss working with you but most of all I miss you and your beautiful smile. You were an amazing person, always so proud of your boys Carlos, Sergio and Gabriel. I will never forget the bowling league we were on with Gabriel and Laura, such fun times. Thank you for always making me feel welcomed at your home. God has another angel, may you rest in peace, love and miss you always. Until we meet again my friend.
