Martha was born January 30, 1932 in Mumford, Texas.
Mrs. Galan went peacefully to be with our Heavenly Father January 14, 2018 at home surrounded by her daughter Eva and Simon Rios.
Martha was a wonderful, loving, strong soul a fighter. Anyone who knew her knew she would go out of her way to help them if needed as so many people knew that she helped.
She was a wonderful mother who worked hard to bring her children out ahead the best she could and she loved her children unconditionally. She was a terrific Ama as everyone called her.

She is also survived by a sister, Lorenza Torres; 23 grandchildren, Micaela, Rachel, Amanda, Honorio, Jessica, Amylu, Noe, Alejandra, Selena, Israel, Chris, Estrellita, Joe, Martha, Rogelio, Angelica, Rosa, Isidro, Gavino, Margarita, Juaquin, Rene, and Irma; several great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren.
A very special thank you to Ruby Garcia for all your help.
