Maria Christina Clements: Jan. 27, 1939 – Dec. 14, 2019



Maria Cristina Clem-ents (Martinez), born in January 1939 in Bogota, Colombia, passed away peacefully on Dec. 14, 2019.

Maria was born to Louis and Ana Martinez. She spent her childhood in Bogota with her older siblings, brother, Louis, and sister, Beatriz, who preceded her in death. Maria moved to the USA to attend school. After graduation, she entered the working world, where she met her husband of 48 years, Lindsey Clements, while living in Dallas, Texas.

Maria enjoyed teaching Spanish to high schoolers and adults alike, and, after a lot of studying and hard work, became a United States citizen and later obtained a master’s degree. She spent several years as a therapist helping the Hispanic community in Skagit County. She loved to travel more than anything and always sought to have fun and experience new things.

Maria and her husband had two sons, Michael (Amy) Clements, of Bellingham, Wash., and John (Morgan) Clements, of Veneta, Ore. Maria had four grandchildren, Bentley, Reese, Dax and Hudson.

Maria was often referred to as spunky, and that spice will be missed by those that knew her.
