Maria D. Padilla Sanchez, was born on May 16, 1954 in Chihuahua, Chihuahua Mexico to Clementina Sanchez and Jose Padilla. She grew up in Juarez, Chihuahua Mexico. She began working at a very young age to help out her family. Her passion was to teach children and her dream was to become a teacher, which she accomplished by being the Sunday Bible School teacher and leading services at the local Christian church.

She was a devoted Christian who gave her life to God at a young age. She was born again Christian in 1979 a few months before she got married to her beloved husband. She had four children and raised them with love guiding them in their Christian faith. In 2003 she moved to New Mexico with her family pursuing a better life.

She was a strong, brave, courageous, intelligent, protective, caring and loving woman. She was a homemaker who also raised three beautiful grandchildren with love. Her priority was to take care of her whole family.

She fought the good battle and finished her race always keeping her faith. There is in store for her the crown of righteousness, which the Lord will award to her on that day (2 Timothy 4:7-8)
