Delia Martin

November 25, 1945 ~ February 9, 2021 (age 75)


It is with the heaviest of hearts and most profound sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved mother 

Delia Serrano Martin.


Needless to say my mother was my friend, my mentor, my guide, my everything. Esterina, as her closest friends called her, is the light in my world and a light to many others. As Matriarch of our family and our business, her loss creates a void that can never be filled. My mother was an inspiring, strong and resilient woman. She battled illness with grace, and while she finally succumbed, she won at life. We will all miss her warmth and wonderful sense of humor. We will miss seeing her in the kitchen creating artful dishes spiced with love that nourished both our bodies and soul. We will miss her support and leadership. Most of all, we will miss her unconditional love. I pray that our memories of her brilliance will sustain us. Mom we will continue and honor your legacy, remember you and love you forever.


We ask that in lieu of flowers that you honor my mother with donations to

Multiple Myeloma Research Fund at Mount Sinai Hospital

where all funds support research specifically Multiple Myeloma


We will welcome all those that wish to pay their respects on Wednesday February 17th. It is very important that we all follow the CDC and Funeral Home’s guidance as to occupancy and Covid precautions. We ask that you please wear masks, observe strict distancing, and above all care and be respectful of each other.
