Victoria Ramirez de Martinez, age 91, of Byron Center, made a transition to a better life on Monday, January 22, 2018, while surrounded by members of her immediate family at her home. She was a great lady who will always be remembered and loved. Victoria was born at Barrio Esperanza in Arecibo, Puerto Rico to Jesus Ramirez and Maria Perceverada Cortes. She had five brothers who preceded her in death. She married Pedro Roman in 1948 and had two children before becoming a widow in 1951. In 1953 she married Genaro Martinez and had two more children. Victoria worked as a seamstress from home before serving for many years as a kitchen assistant at what was known as Arecibo District Hospital. After retirement, she and her husband and daughter moved to Grand Rapids in 1978. She became a widow again in 2002. Victoria was a sweet and humble person who enjoyed cooking for family and friends. Having been a seamstress, she continued to enjoy sewing until Alzheimer's began its deterioration process. The disease was diagnosed in 2008. After a stroke in 2015 she could no longer walk and lost the use of one arm. Victoria is survived by her four children, Pedro Roman Jr., of Byron Center, Angel Manuel (Marilia) Roman of Arecibo, Jose Manuel (Evelyn) Martinez of Milwaukee, Lydia (Douglas) Stamate of Wyoming, MI; 10 grandchildren; and 11 great-grandchildren. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, January 24 from 4 - 6 pm for immediate family only at Stroo Funeral Home. Public viewing will follow from 6 - 8 pm. The service will be held at 10 am Thursday, January 25 at Stroo Funeral Home. Interment will follow in Resurrection Cemetery (Clyde Park Ave.)
