MARTHA ALENE “MARTY” TORRES, age 73 of Waseca, died Thursday, April 11, 2024, at Mayo Clinic Health System – Mankato.

 

She was born February 13, 1951, in Mason City, Iowa. She was the daughter of Erwin and Cornellia (Lang) Siewertsen and grew up on her family’s farm with five sisters and one brother. Working on the farm gave Marty her hard work ethic. She attended school at Floyd Elementary Grade School, and Charles City Community School. After graduating, she moved to Mason City, where she met Richard Torres in 1973. Together, they had four sons and later moved to Waseca where she worked at Bird’s Eye Foods for 15 years. Marty moved to New Mexico where she worked as an assistant manager of Alco. She later returned back to Waseca where she worked for Brown Printing for a short time, before working at Kwik Trip where she remained for many years. Marty enjoyed sewing, crocheting, embroidery, and spending time with her family.

 

She is survived by her children, Rusttee (Rachel) Torres, Shane Torres, Serfin “Taco” (Michelle) Torres; eight grandchildren, six step grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; siblings, Olene (Alan) Schoeder of Greene, Iowa, Maynard (Debra) Siewertsen of Fredericksburg, Iowa, as well as several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents and husband; one son, Cimiron; sisters, Dvona Joan, Rosa Beth, Venita, and Idona Sue.
