Alberta P. Martinez worked at Green Thumb Nursery for decades. She was the go-to gal about plants, so if you didn’t have a green thumb you asked Alberta and she would never steer you wrong. I dearly loved going in and talking to her. If you couldn’t find her, all you had to do was listen. She had an infectious laugh that you could hear beyond the walls of the store.
Everybody loved Alberta, who just recently passed away. A ceremony was held for her Green Thumb family at Hart Park.
She will be missed, and will forever be a loss to all those would-be gardeners who will not have her valued expertise.
