Obituary

Martha Pineda Kraker, 89 of Salinas passed away Sunday, July 23, 2017 surrounded by her loving daughters and granddaughter. She was born July 14, 1928 in Austin, Texas.
Martha moved to New York City around 1950. There she met her husband. They had their two children in New York City where she enjoyed sharing with her daughters all the experiences the City had to offer. Her need to be closer to her family brought them to relocate to Salinas in July 1965. Martha worked at Natividad Medical Center in the Dietary Department for 29 years until her retirement after a brain aneurysm in 1988. She was a strong woman as she overcame the affects and results of that aneurysm. She faced another battle, this time cancer, which began in 2005 but it came back in 2015.
Martha was preceded in death by her father, Martin H Pineda, mother, Elvira Lopez Pineda and Husband, William John Kraker.
Martha is survived by her two daughters: Ann Kraker-Figueroa (Tom) and Susan Kraker-Cappuccio (Joe), Sister, Nellie Aguirre, brother's, Jesse Pineda and John Pineda (Annie), 5 grandchildren, numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren and many many nieces and nephews, all whom absolutely loved and adored her.
