Alabama, NY

Leonardo Eusebio Martinez has passed at age 91 on December 14, 2023, in the state of Alabama under the care of his children. He was brought here after having a heart attack in September 2023 to be cared for by his children. His home was in San Antonio, Texas, where he lived for about 23 plus years. He was born in Coahuila, Mexico. He outlived his wife Ubertina Martinez Meza and his daughter Maria de Jesus Martinez Meza. He leaves behind 10 children, Irma Martinez Meza, Manuela Martinez Meza, Eusebio Martinez Meza, Roberto Martinez Meza, Lassara Martinez Meza, Jose Efren Martinez Meza, Ana Maria Nancy Martinez Meza, Luis Armando Martinez Meza, Maricruz Martinez Meza, and Cesar Magdaleno Martinez Meza. He also leaves behind 26 grandchildren and 52 great grand children. Leonardo was a wise and knowledgeable man. Knowledge that came from his many traveled adventures, travels in which he earned a living to provide for his family. One thing that he was known for were his stories that he loved to share, stories that left us rolling in laughter. He had a way of making us laugh and that is something we will forever cherish. Leonardo was of a giving heart, in his years of life he helped hundreds of people in many ways, including monetarily. He was of a very strong and hard character due to him holding on to lots of hardship from his upbringing. And it was something that was quite noticeable. But those who truly got to know him and be in his presence know that he had a huge heart. His happiness was the great grand babies and his animals. In his younger years, he had a farm and in his last 4 years of life enjoyed having and reliving the presence of farm animals on his land for him to admire, thanks to his grandson Jose Martinez. He enjoyed sitting on his front porch watching them graze in the front yard. And any time he was with with the grand babies his face was visibly bright and cheerful. In his last years of life he opened his heart, if only just a peak. It was the greatest gift he leaves behind. As well as his example of strength and courage. He fought a good fight against his ailment. He is loved by his family and will be eternally missed.

Carolyn Gardiner

Jul 13, 1930 - Dec 01, 2023

location-icon

Alabama, NY

"Carolyn Teel Gardiner was born July 13, 1930, to Hazel Krieder Teel and Vernie L. Teel in Clanton, Alabama. She died December 1, 2023, in Memphis, TN, and remained a proud daughter of Alabama, all of her life. She was predeceased by her brother Sidney Krieder Teel and is survived by her brother, Samuel L. Teel (Libby) and her nieces and nephew, Carole Teel Martin, Antigone Teel Duarte, and Timothy Krieder Teel, and her surrogate son, Randy House. As anyone who knew and loved her will attest, Carolyn will remain a proud daughter of Alabama in the next life as well, and as anyone who knew her at all - or, in fact, had any conversation with her for more than ten minutes in length - will attest, she will remain convinced for all eternity that the Tide will continue to Roll. She would also point out that history supports her faith. When facts support statements, and figures for that matter, and when they don't, Carolyn would point that out - graciously, to be sure - but leaving no doubt of a firmly supported opinion. That would serve her and her friends well in her life and career, providing record keeping and tax services to her clients, for more than the last four decades as Carolyn Gardiner and Associates. Have no doubt, every one of those clients was a friend. Carolyn loved the South, and both appreciated and told a good story, understanding that all of those things are as connected as grits and butter. She once pointed out to a group sipping whiskey on a porch during a church retreat - obviously, an Episcopal Church retreat - that telling stories separates North and South: "If a man up there wants you to believe another is honest," she explained, "he'll just say, 'That man is honest. ' Down here, we'd say, 'See that chicken over there? If he tells you that chicken smokes, you lift her wing, there'll be a pack of cigarettes under there. '" She will be sorely missed by everyone on that porch and all of those in the pews at Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church in midtown Memphis, where she served as the Altar Guild Directress for three terms - her passion - and on the Vestry, Pastoral Care Committee, and in Education for Ministry and Disciples of Christ in Community. She attended continuing education classes at Memphis Theological Seminary for ten years. As Carolyn would further point out, to add that she attended the University of Alabama would be like pointing out that Bear Bryant wore a houndstooth hat. A Requiem Eucharist will be offered Tuesday, December 12, at 11 a. m. at Grace-St. Luke's Episcopal Church followed by a Committal in the Church Columbarium. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the Altar Guild Fund at Grace-St. Luke's Church ATTN: Memorial Gifts, 1720 Peabody Avenue, Memphis, TN 38104, or online at gracestlukes. org/give. "
