Her faith was very important to her and, in later life, she attended the United Christian Fellowship in Wallace. Mrs. Martin spent many years in her Wallace day care taking care of children. Children, she cared a great deal for and, when they grew up, never forgot her. Anyone Mrs. Martin encountered could sense that this wonderful lady cared greatly for them. Much time was spent in her gardening and growing beautiful flowers which she took much pride in arranging for others to enjoy. Another trait was the ability to cook a wonderful meal, to which many of her friends can attest. The focus of her earthly life, though, was her family who she dearly loved, and to whom she never failed to show it.
