    ABS-CBNnews.com,03/14/2015 1:25 PM

    MANILA - Liezl Martinez's life was cut short on Saturday morning. The wife of Albert Martinez succumbed to stage 4 cancer.

    She was 47.

    Anna Lissa Martinez in real life battled the Big C for eight years. But Liezl did not face her battle alone. Her family was always there beside her until the end.

    "Sobra akong blessed. Anytime I go, I don't have any complaints, because I became a mother, I have good kids, I have a good family. What more can I ask for?" Liezl said in an interview in 2012.

    Liezl loved sharing photos of moments shared with her husband, and their children Alfonso, Alyssa and Alyanna, on her Instagram account.

    Here are some of their latest snapshots:

    sabi ko na nga ba at sya ang nasa blind item thread :(

    RIP
  • Albert and Liezl’s love story may not be as celebrated as the others but theirs is one for the books. It endured, it inspired and stood the test of time and circumstances.


    She could have been a bigger star but she was content seeing her husband have the spotlight.

    g1cipdkau9bvb9k.jpg?djet1p5k

    She was dignified, private and admirable in her tenacity and devotion to her husband and family, hence, in this age of women empowerment, truly unique and one-of-a-kind.

    Rest In Peace, Anna Liza!

    Albert Martinez pays tribute to his late wife Liezl: 'I owe everything to her'
    March 14, 2015 8:22pm


    Ilang oras pagkatapos lumabas ang balita tungkol sa pagkamatay ng aktres na si Liezl Martinez ay isang madamdaming mensahe ang ipinost ng kanyang mister na si Albert Martinez sa Instagram ngayong Sabado ng hapon, March 14.

    Sa kanyang mensahe ay nagbigay-pugay si Albert kay Liezl na tinawag niya bilang "my wife, my partner, my best friend."

    Dagdag pa niya, "We grew up together. We raised a family together."

    Bilang isang ina ay ibinigay raw ni Liezl ang kanyang buong buhay para sa kanilang mga anak.
    Sina Albert at Liezl ay mayroong tatlong anak—sina Alyanna, Alfonso, at Alyssa.

    Ayon pa sa aktor, utang niya ang lahat—matagumpay na career at masayang tahanan—dahil sa kanyang misis."

    Narito ang kabuuan ng Instagram post ni Albert kalakip ang larawan nila ni Liezl:



    Nagkakilala sina Albert at Liezl nang gawin nila ang pelikulang Ibulong Mo Sa Puso noong 1984.

    Habang ginagawa nila ang nasabing pelikula, na magsisilbi sanang relaunch ni Liezl bilang young actress, ay nagkagustuhan sila.

    Bagamat mahigpit na tinutulan ng ina ni Liezl na si Amalia Fuentes ang kanilang relasyon ay ipinaglaban pa rin ng dalawa ang pagmamahalan nila. Nagtungo sila sa Amerika at doon bumuo ng saril nilang pamilya.

    Pumanaw si Liezl kaninang bandang 6:15 A.M. matapos ang mahabang pakikipaglaban sa breast cancer. Siya ay 47 years old.

    Sa March 27 ay ipagdiriwang sana ni Liezl ang kanyang ika-48 kaarawan.

    Ang burol ng mga labi ni Liezl ay gaganapin sa Heritage Park Chapels and Crematory sa Taguig City. -- Erwin Santiago, PEP
