Obituary

Marta Milagros Serrano Oxios Spencer was born on March 4, 1942 to Agapito Serrano and Modesta Oxios in Ponce, Puerto Rico. When Marta was 9 years old, she came to live in the Southern Boulevard section of the Bronx.   Marta was number 13 of 18 siblings and is survived by Digna, Noemi, Bernalda, Julie, Elba, and Luz.

On November 4, 1961, Marta married Ronald D. Spencer.  The couple had 4 children, Maria Lisa, Rosanne Modesta, Dolores Belinda, and Mark Ronald.  Marta’s husband sadly passed away on September 11, 1970.  Marta is survived by all 4 children.

Marta worked at the NYC Public School 226 on Sedgwick Avenue in the Bronx as a School Lunch Helper Cook. She retired on March 25, 2004.  Marta loved her job, the co-workers and the children absolutely gravitated towards her loving and lively spirit.  

Marta had many interests, outside of loving her family.  Her top interests were Salsa music/dancing, the Boogie down Bronx Yankees, and her beautiful island of Puerto Rico, where she visited often.  Marta also loved going to Orchard Beach in the Bronx to play paddle ball, dominoes, and soak up the sun.  She danced every Sunday at Orchard Beach to live salsa bands, and she will definitely be remembered for being the life of the party with her infectious good energy.  Marta was very creative with arts and crafts.  She would create party favors for our birthday parties, family events, cooked homemade Puerto Rican dishes, and loved spending time with her family and friends.  Marta had great joy simply just being with her grandchildren and great grandchildren doing crossword puzzles and watching Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune.  Marta is survived by 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

  When we think about our Mom, there are an endless amount of words, emotions, and thoughts that come to mind.  Her kindness, courage, and sacrificially raised 4 children by herself, and how she served selfishly our family throughout the years.  Marta leaves behind a beautiful legacy of unconditional love, tradition, and commitment to her family.  Mom, we will never forget you, your love for us, and we will live on your legacy.

    This was a very special day for me mom as you walked your last child to share my 25th wedding renewal as we never shared it in the past. I miss you so much as you are with me forever and I heard you call me this morning and I started to cry as I Knew you are with the angels. I hope you are dancing away and laughing out loud WEPPPPPPPPAAAAA. I want to hear it again mom. You said not to cry as you will be with your family and friends and no longer in pain - its tooo hard to not cry cause I don't have my shopping partner no more or for you to share a shot of B & B with Sergio or corona beer with me. Until we meet again as I now can say I am not afraid to go to heaven cause I will be with you and dad again so wait for me as it may be 30 plus yrs from now. I can still smell you and know your room is clean and your puzzles are with your panda. I watch your shows like we did at dinner time and hear your scream out the answer to wheel of fortune. I will continue mom to have your story be told to all who will listen and to your grandkids and great grandkids so they know what a fabulous grandma they had. Til I see you and feel you again mom always your ROSANNE P.S. Tell  Checo we are good and kisses to my dad.
