MARTINEZ Cristobalina Bonet Martinez, a devoted wife to Federico Jasso Marti- nez Sr. was a beloved mother and grandmoth- er who was called home to be with our heavenly Lord on Tuesday May 30, 2017, after 100 years. She was born on a ship headed towards Ponce, Puerto Rico, on March 11, 1917, to Ismael Bonet and Concepcion Mendez Bonet. Cristobalina, or "Lila" for short, was prede- ceased by her parents, husband, sisters; Enicia M Bonet and Libertad M Bonet, brothers; Eliceo M Bonet, Pablos-Ander Bonet, and Samuel M Bonet, and her son; Wil- liam Alemar. Lila is survived by her son Anthony Alemar and his wife Sue Alemar; daughter Nilda Agate; daughter in-law Angelica Erazo; step-daughter Teresa Lozano; step-sons Octaviano Martinez and Catarino Martinez; grandchildren Mary Jane & Craig Ramirez, Joe & Sandra Martinez, Freddy Martinez, Dominique & Sam Mac, Lila Alemar, William Alemar, Linda Michelle & Eliseo Torres, Diane & Vinny Burruto, Emily & Steve Mooney, and Vito Agate. She was blessed with great grandchildren Krysta B Ramirez, Alexis L. Alemar, Vincent & Samantha Ag- ate, Anthony & Adriana Burruto, Nicholas, Gracy & Alex Torres, Lilyanna and Julianna Mooney; and great-great-grand- child Enzo Burruto. Cristobalina worked as a seamstress in New York, then, as a nurse at a state hospital in Austin, TX, she loved reading the Bible, solving cross- word puzzles, watching Don Francisco, drink- ing coffee, eating pizza, and hash browns from McDonalds. She en- joyed cooking and eating home cooked meals like rice, beans, caldo, and lots of vegetables and fruits. Her favorites were Mexican, Puerto Rican, and American food. In her earlier years, Lila's favorite hobbies included shopping, gardening, and sewing. Sitting on the porch, talking with family and friends, and just catching the warmth of the sun was her very favorite. Her true passion was praying, for her friends and family. She loved learning and was always studying God. Lila was brought up Catholic but she learned many reli- gions to know her Maker as well as she could. Ultimately, she chose Christianity. Her last Church was Holy Ground Ministry. Her joyful love of family, friends, and her service to her lord was a blessing and she will be missed by all. Join us in celebrating the remarkable life of Cristobalina B. Martinez, beginning with Visitation at 9:30 a.m. onWednes- day, June 7, 2017 at Hat- tell Funeral Home, 1715 Kirby, Kyle, TX. Graveside services will immediately follow at San Juan Cem- etery in Maxwell, Texas. A word of heart-felt thanks to her friends at Compassionate Care Hospice and Deer Creek of Wimberley Living & Memory Care in Wim- befley, Texas; for all the care, love and affection bestowed upon Lila and the family. Continued from pg. 1C brought Monarchs from their wintering grounds in Mexico early. This is not good Those that travelled with eggs to Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Iowa arrived before the milkweed emerged in an adequate quantity for egg laying. Instances of "egg dumping" occurred on small plants. A large portion of the new generation was lost when caterpillars hatched and had no food. Keep up with what's happening with the Monarchs on Monarch Watch's Facebook page. It's more current than the website. Birds and squirrels are flocking to our feeders and the water and plants we provide. Often I enter bird species observations on the eBird app while I sit at the kitchen table, with the bird magnet wildscape out the window holding me firmly in place. One day last week, I counted 18 species in one sitting This is the season's peak for seeing young birds from this season out on their own, sometimes accompanied by parents. You've seen such juveniles gaping and fluttering wings, begging parents for food? The week a young Eastern Bluebird out my window was begging an immature Northern Cardinal for food. Who's the ugliest juvenile? My vote goes to the Northern Cardinals, both male and female. The Garraways saw a beautiful Painted Bunting this week, the hands down winner for "most beautiful". Do you have junk laying around your yard that's not fit to give away? This weekend is Mountain City's Annual "Dumpster Days". Volunteers get first dibs on the cool stuff that's brought in. June 10th, 8am - June llth 5pm. It closes early if all the reserved dumpsters are filled. If Montage fills with tidbits, leftovers are saved for later. Send tidbits to ptom5678@ or 512 268 5678. Thanks! Love, Pauline It's About Thyme Continued from pg. 1C reservoir to draw from. 2. Native Tree Care This month generally turns out to be pretty hot and dry. Remember your trees are going to be thirsty too. A small amount of rain does little to carry moisture deep into the soil. 3. Mulch This will cool the roots and slow the water loss from evaporation. Mixing your mulch 50:50 (bag- for-bag) with compost, will add nutrition and relieve stress. 4. Slow release fertilizers When feeding flowerbeds and turf, be sure to use an organic- based, slow-release fertilizer. You will avoid burning plant roots in the summer heat and will have little impact on our watershed. Foliar sprays with seaweed will also help reduce heat stress. 5. Care for your roses The first flush of your spring roses has finished. The flowering ends of the rose stems have probably formed hips (seed pods). Cut them off and there will be a new round of flowering. Also, give them some rose food. Examine them for any sign of insects, especially spidermites, and treat with horticultural oil (Sunspray or All Seasons) or Spinosad. 6. Mow high Cut your grass as high as you can stand. Longer grass blades will help shade the turf and conserve water. Leave clippings on the lawn. 7. Add summer color This is the right time to plant heat-loving summer color in those empty spaces. Planting in the morning and evening is best. For summer color, zinnias, purslane, moss rose, and vinca seem to be the hardiest. Make sure they get enough water when they are establishing themselves.
