Carolina was born December 21, 1945 to Roberto T. and Emma Martinez Jasso in Reynosa, Tamaulipas Mexico. She entered the United States at 8 years old. She and her family worked farms between McAllen, Texas and Ontario, Oregon as migrant workers helping to support their family. They settled in Twin Falls, Idaho. She met her wonderful husband Wally in the spring of 1967 and they married on August 8 of the same year (which happens to be Wally’s birthday and she did so they would never forget). They began their family in Twin Falls and then relocated to Ridgefield, Washington where they raised their children on a farm and experienced many memories together as a family.

Carolina was a loving and amazing wife, mother and grandmother all the while being feisty and passionate about the people she loved and what she believed in. She was a proud woman and had her own way with words. She was a tenacious soul, with a whole lot of sass, the strength of a warrior and a heart full of love. She had a green thumb and loved gardening. She had an array of vegetables and flowers, with tomatoes, blueberries, geraniums, roses and irises as favorites. She loved to sit, soak up the sun and enjoyed saying her daily prayers. She was a proud member of the Local 335 Laborers Union in Vancouver, WA and instilled morals and values including hard work and dedication to family with her children, grandchildren and many others she had connected with over her lifetime. She encouraged her family to strive for better, always finding the lesson or blessing in a situation. She was a strong believer in Jesus Christ Our Lord.
