Abigail "Abby" Martinez
March 27, 2000 ~ April 2, 2023
San Antonio, Texas
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas
Abigail “Abby” Martinez, 23, passed away April 2, 2023. She was born March 27, 2000 in San Antonio, Texas to Nash Martinez Jr. and Dina Dugi Martinez . Abby was a free spirit and artist. She loved art and had natural talent in creating in multiple mediums. Abby is a graduate of Alamo Heights High School and excelled in modern art. She was accepted to all three of the top art schools in the nation. Her mind, while being a beautiful tool of creativity, was tortured like those of many other brilliant artists. Though she struggled for many years with mental and physical ailments, she still found many simple pleasures in life. When she wasn’t working on her art, Abby enjoyed watching anime or Pokémon, tending to animals of all shapes and sizes- be it her dogs, ducks or passing honeybees-, and spending time with her beloved niece and nephew. She could always be found by her mom’s side, likely with her juul in her hand! She shared many personality traits with her father and would often butt heads with him; but as much as they might have disagreed they still came together in the evenings to enjoy watching Law and Order together. Abigail will be dearly missed by her family and all whose lives she touched.
Left to cherish her memory are her parents, Nash Martinez Jr. and Dina Dugi Martinez; sisters, Karissa Rose Martinez, Isabella Storme Martinez; brother-in-law, Gregory Paul Livesay; niece and nephew, Audrey Raine and Beckett Allen. Paternal grandparents Nash and Gloria Martinez and preceded in death by maternal grandparents Daniel and Margaret Dugi. And of course a beautiful extended family and many friends.
My heart is broken forever 💔 after you
Abby loved you so very much! Please know we are here for you!
We love you Abby. I love you.
Everso sorry for the family’s loss.
We love you Dina, Nash, Bella, Karissa, Gloria, and Nash Sr.
Dina, Nash, Bella, and Karissa,
I know you are heart sore, but may your happy memories of your time with Abby bring you comfort and peace. I will think of her every time I have Thai food and remember how she ordered it level 5 super spicy. I will think of her when I see intriguing, intricate works of art and remember how I marveled at her talent. Every December, I will smile as I remember how last Christmas she made us howl with laughter as she danced her elf jig. Abby never hesitated to say “I love you!” or “I’m sorry.” And when she said it, I knew she meant it. She also always said, “Thank you!” when I gave her a gift or did the smallest favor for her. She didn’t take those things for granted. I so wish life had given that sweet soul an easier road to travel, but I will be forever grateful that I got to journey part of it with her, though it was far, far too short.
Rest in Peace, Abby.
That was her to a T
I’ll forever remember the time Gloria introduced me to Abby, she was a great person to hang around with, so shy and quiet she loved running but mainly I won’t forget spending time with her qhen we were younger. These memories I will cherish my condolences to the Martinez family she was a great friend to me and a beautiful person inside and out she will be missed by so many including myself 😔
I am terribly heartbroken💔
Thank you for sharing your memories of Abby! She loved everyone with her whole entire heart!
Abby, I’m glad I got to know you. You have a big heart and you were a good friend.
I know she was so appreciative of you!!!
Abby you will be missed and always loved🙏🏽❤️ -Lilly
I remember having sleepovers and watching anime and dressing up with her way back when and she was the absolute sweetest soul. It hurts my heart to see this bc I saw her a few years ago as we had gotten together with another mutual friend and she wasn’t doing too good and I prayed she would overcome. I wish I had reached out a little more.
I hope she’s finally at peace.
She was still the sweetest soul and had been clean and sober for over two months! We don’t know why this happened but we know it wasn’t her intention. She had so many plans, but God had his own for her.
Sweet Abigail, I’m so honored I got the opportunity to grow up with you. You were a ray of sunshine and you will never be forgotten.
Thank you for your kind words!
We are so heartbroken. We cannot believe you are gone, but God has you in his arms and you are free of all pain. I am so glad that you and I shared so much the last week of your life. As always, you were smart and intelligent. You touched our hearts. We will never forget you. We will always love you Abby.
So much love!
I’ll miss my cousin ❤️
Dina, Nash, Bella and Karissa,
Please accept my deepest condolences. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thank you Josh!
We love you
Sweet girl, I hope your heart and soul finds peace.
Thank you. How did you know Abby?
Sorry for your loss. From my family too yours, many prayers upon prayers… 🙏🏽
Thank you Harry…all prayers accepted!
My condolences to the family. May her memories bring you peace and comfort during this time.
I miss you so much Abby. I really wanted you to be happy. I wish I knew how to help you but I didn’t and I was struggling too. I miss the days in middle school where we would just hang out and talk about anime. Life got complicated when we grew up and I wish I could go back and do it over again. I really thought we would have more time. You were a really good person struggling with a lot. I love you and I hope you’re loving your dream now. I really mean it. I appreciated you so much. I’ll donate to haven for hope for you
Abby and I were friends in middle school and high school. We were always talking about anime and manga. She was always drawing and creating art. She was so creative and free spirited. She always had a smile on her face. During geometry in high school she would pass me drawings she made during class. She loved her friends and making others smile, even when she was having an off day she would be cracking jokes. She reached out to me a few times wanting to hang out, but I just didn’t have time. I regret not making time now. I hope her heart is resting now. She deserves all the peace. I’m so sorry for your loss.
Your memories are exactly Abby!
Thank you for sharing!
My deepest condolences to the Martinez family. When I heard of Abby’s passing, I was heartbroken. Abby was in my daughter’s grade, so I remember her from all of the school functions and class parties, with her Mom always by her side. She was a beautiful person. May the Lord give you the strength during this difficult time. You are in my prayers. 🙏🏼📿

My thoughts and prayers are with your family, I had many conversations with Abby freshman year and she truly was one of the sweetest people on campus. May her soul finally be at peace 💜
Thank you for sharing your memories of her. It is so special for us to hear!
To the Abigail Martinez Family, my fervent prayers for the comfort of the Holy Spirit to surround you in this time of profound sorrow. Nash, my heart breaks for you; you of great character, faith, love, sense of humor, I am confident, are one of the best Dads possible. Nash, I recall our studying John Donne’s Holy Sonnets in English class in Room 13 of Floresville High School.
Death be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou are not so,
For thou whom thou think’st thou dost overthrow
Die not, poor death, nor yet can’t thou kill me;
From rest and sleep, which but thy pictures be,
Much pleasure, then from thee, much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul’s delivery,
Thou art slave to fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy, or charms can make us sleep as well,
And better than thy stroke; why swelled thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And death shall be no more, Death thou shall die.
Nash y Familia, pienso en ti y la Familia tuya; Que Dios te de la Fortaleza y la Paz que tu Alma necesita.
Tu professor, C. A. Rust III
We are so touched and marveled by how much we have learned about Abby these past few weeks. She was certainly a light in many lives. Tia Lala and Tio Nash always excitedly lit up when talking about her. Abby will continue to be so well loved and remembered which speaks so loudly about your sweet little girl. Rest assured in God’s promises of eternal life, comfort, love and peace as you face all the tomorrows yet to come. Nothing but sweet and heartfelt condolences and goodness to all of you.
Your Abby girl was such a beautiful kind loving girl. So many beautiful memories of birthday parties and slumber partes. Such heartbreaking news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Yes we have wonderful memories. I was looking at so many photos bb these last few weeks of all the time our girls were laughing and playing. Just the way it was supposed to be.
