Obituary for Della Martinez Billings

Della was born in Taos, New Mexico to Florencio Martinez and Juanita Gurule. She passed away in Salt Lake City, Utah in the loving arms of her son, Darryl Billings. Della married Edward Billings; later divorced. She graduated Clifton High School in Colorado and attended Salt Lake Community College.

Della was a very kind, gentle and loving person. She was selfless and would give anything to anyone in need—never expecting anything in return. Della loved her family very much. She enjoyed kissing them and showing them her affection in any way possible. She was an excellent cook. Thanksgiving was always a feast where the family could enjoy being together. Della enjoyed traveling and would always make time to go visit her son when he lived in various locations.

Survived by her son, Darryl (Isabelle) Billings; daughter, Cheryl Gallegos; two grandchildren, Jordan Billings and Michael Quintana; her last surviving brother, Pat Martinez; and several nieces, nephews, extended family members, and friends who she loved dearly.

The family expresses their sincere gratitude and thanks to those who have graciously donated to assist with Della's funeral expenses.

Funeral services will be held Tuesday, October 17, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 S. State Street, Murray, Utah with a viewing from 1:00-1:45 p.m. Interment: Elysian Burial Gardens.
