Martha P. Morfín Gutierrez, age 31, passed away peacefully in her home in Riverdale on April 22, surrounded by her loved ones. She was born in Los Angeles, to Francisco Morfín and Paula Torres. She adored her sister Paola and brother Francisco, spending hours talking of her love for them, cherishing their childhood memories. Martha grew up in Roy, graduating from Roy High School in 2009. She earned an associate degree in criminal justice which she worked so hard for, feeling accomplished and proud of. Martha also enjoyed working for Ogden Clinic where she was surrounded by support and made a very dear friend, Lily.
Martha was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, and aunt who fought a courageous battle with cancer over the last 7 years. Through it all, she remained positive and optimistic and in her classic stubborn ways she would not and did not give up the fight.
Martha married her long-time love, Lorenzo Gutierrez in 2014, together they endlessly laughed, teased, and built a team of strength and companionship like no other. Their dedication to one another in sickness and health, good times and bad was admired and a true testament of genuine love. Lorenzo so graceful and sweetly cared for and pampered her like a gentle giant, filling her days with smiles and comfort every single day.
Martha loved sharing her birthday with her son Jaedyn who was her pride and joy! Together they often celebrated, with trips to Bear Lake with family and friends. She was also his biggest fan! Where she would cheer him on in all his endeavors, especially his love for soccer.
Martha also loved spending time with her family. Dancing with her dad, going to the movies with her mom, spoiling her nieces and nephews taking them swimming, camping, and traveling together were some of her favorite memories. She was always excited to celebrate others with balloons- going out of her way to make others feel special and loved.
