Roselin Nato Martinez, age 68, passed on the morning of Sunday, June 28, 2020. She is survived by her only son, Muhammed Martinez (Brenda), affectionately known as Eric; her granddaughter Anabel Jacinta Martinez; many cousins, nephews, and nieces; and extended family, Noel Martinez, Erlinda Bokhari, and Epiphania “Fannie” Villalobos. She is preceded in death by her parents, Francisco and Margarita Nato; 3 sisters, 5 brothers; and extended family, Enrique Alamillo and Josefina Martinez.
Roselin was born in Mapandan, Pangasinan, Philippines on May 22, 1952. In 1977, she graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the University of Pangasinan in Dagupan City. She immigrated to the United States at the age of 26. She began working as an Operating Room Technician at St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago, IN as part of an elite staff in 1978. She worked there for nearly 20 years before transferring to Community Hospital in Munster, IN. In her later years, she served as a live-in caregiver for many, often considered to be family amongst those under her care. Her talent for cooking only further demonstrated her concern for the well-being of those with whom she was surrounded. Her outgoing personality and generosity made her a joy to be around. She will be missed.
