“His only time and dedication was his daughter, there was nothing but his daughter,” said Rocío Ramos-Martínez’s cousin in a telephone conversation.
“She was very creative, she knew how to sew, make cakes, she was a Pandora box,” added Ana Martínez, who received Ramos-Martínez when she arrived from Mexico to the Yakima Valley almost three years ago.
Ramos-Martínez, 30, died Monday at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle from injuries sustained after being attacked, according to eyewitness testimony, by the father of her 2-year-old daughter, Luberto Fernández Rodríguez, reported the Yakima Herald-Republic newspaper.
“She did not deserve this, she was very loved, she was an excellent mother,” added Martinez.
Ramos-Martínez’s family opened an account GoFundme on Facebook to raise funds for cremation expenses, Valeria Ramos reported by phone.
