Phyllis Martinez

August 25, 1961 - December 27, 2019

Phyllis Martinez,58, of Newport News passed away December 27, 2019. She was a devoted wife and homemaker as her husband, US Army SSG Victor M. Martinez, Jr., while he served our country for over 19 years.

After her husband’s untimely death, she made sure that her family was cared for as a young widow. As the matriarch she worked hard to keep everything going smoothly until she fell unexpectantly ill, and was no longer able to provide for them. After becoming ill, she stayed at the Sentara Nursing Center in Hampton until the time came for her to be reunited with her husband’s spirit in death.

At this time no services will be held she will be placed with her husband at Albert G Horton Jr. Veterans Cemetery at a later date.  Memorial donation can be made at or by clicking the donate link below.
