Esmeralda Contreras, 45, of Amarillo, went to her heavenly home on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, surrounded by her loving family.
Esmeralda was born on December 6, 1974, in Emporia, Kansas. She later married Jesus Contreras on March 10, 1999 in Indio, California. They were blessed with their two children, Jesus Adrian and Elijah Noel Contreras.
She was a courageous faithful woman of God and touched the lives of everyone she came in contact with. She was a devoted loving mother to her sons, and the rock of her family. She was blessed to have an amazing, unbreakable marriage with her husband who always remained by her side. She was an amazing daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, niece, and friend. Bringing joy into other peoples lives was what she did best. She will always remain in our hearts, and will never be forgotten.
Those left to cherish her memory are her mother and her stepfather, Diana and Orlando Cortes; her loving husband, Jesus, of the home; two sons, Jesus Adrian and Elijah Noel Contreras; two sisters, Mercedes Martinez of San Diego, California and Diana Martinez of Amarillo; two brothers, Abelino Martinez, Jr. and Adrian Martinez, both of Amarillo.
A celebration of life service for Esmeralda will be held at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, July 31, 2020 at New Life Outreach Ministries, 406 Pittsburgh Street in Amarillo, with Spike Maldonado officiating.
