October 11, 1968 - September 4, 2021
Shari Lee (Hopkins) Martinez graced the world with her presence on the 11th day of October 1968 in San Antonio, Texas. Born the daughter of the loving couple Mr. Thomas Patrick Hopkins and the late Mrs. Donna Lynn Hopkins, she, along with her brother, took care her family’s affairs until her final days. She is survived by her best friend and husband Marty Martinez, her doting father, Thomas P. and her younger brother, Lesley Hopkins (Lisa). Further survived by nieces: Syrena and Sage (Taylon) and great nieces and great nephews: Kinsley, Lilly, Jaedyn and Grayson and beloved pet Chihuahua, Synko. She is also survived by countless friends who will remember her for her gentle nature and kind demeanor. She graduated from East Central High School and became a lifelong learner. In her youth Shari held several jobs such as store clerk to daycare assistant. She worked at Hill Country Steel Fabrication (HCS) for over 22 years where she met a cast of characters whom she held dearly in her heart. HCS was also the place where her generosity led her to form a not-for-profit organization, Three Helping Hearts, with some of her co-workers. Three Helping Hearts was committed to delivering God’s Love to orphaned, at-risk, disabled and less fortunate children and teens in the form of personalized gifts, food and fellowship with Santa Claus. Besides her love for God, Family, Texas and Country Shari loved to watch cooking shows and reality shows like Big Brother and The Amazing Race. She and Marty founded Moon and Stars Productions a multi-media arts and entertainment company. Providing joy via DJ services and personalized Christmas cards. Traveling was also a passion of hers. Although most of her adventures took her within the continental United States, she loved experiencing new places and people. She was an excellent marksman and was deadly accurate with her .38 Special. Among her myriad of interests, Shari loved to color, organize, people watch, spread joy and laughter and dance. She was a quiet, reserved and shy person but had a personality that, when asked to describe her most, if not all, people would say, “She is so sweet.” Shari finally succumbed to her illnesses on the 4th day of September 2021 at 3:55pm surrounded by family. The family would like to thank all of her doctors over the years, but they would like to especially thank the ICU team at Mission Trails Baptist Hospital for helping her transition from this life to the next comfortably and peacefully. Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Shari’s life at a visitation from 4pm to 7pm and Memorial Service from 7pm to 8pm on Saturday, September 18th, 2021, at Mission Park Funeral Home, 1700 SE Military Dr, San Antonio, TX 78214. In lieu of flowers the Family would like you to consider donating in memory of Shari to the Scleroderma foundation at scleroderma.org and/or the American Lung Association at lung.org to help people research and combat these terrible diseases.
