6/16/30 – 5/13/13
Graveside services are scheduled for 10:30 a.m., Saturday, May 18, 2013, at South Park Cemetery, for Wanda Martin, 82, of Roswell, who passed away in the early hours right after Mother’s Day on Monday, May 13, 2013.
Our mother, grandmother, aunt and friend was born on June 16, 1930, in McAdoo, Texas, to James Marion Buckner and Freda Buckner; both preceded her in death. She was also preceded in death by two of her three sons, Jerry Duane Martin and Donald Roy Martin.
Mom was united in marriage with our father Morris somewhere in Texas (maybe they eloped; I don’t know or remember), on Dec. 6, 1947. Dad passed to heaven on July 19, 1997. Mom said she was going to join him in heaven. I imagine he was at the pearly gates to welcome her — I hope. I know the fish are always biting in heaven; surely he laid down his pole long enough to hug her.
Mom is survived by one son Jeff Martin and wife Dorothy, of Roswell; grandson Chad Martin, of Roswell, and his children, Emma, Derrick and Kameron; grandson Eric Martin and his wife Katie and their children, Samuel, Harrison and Madeline, all of Umatilla, Fla.; grandson Kyle Martin of Roswell, and his son Trent Martin Herring; grandson Levi Martin and his daughter Lanee, of Roswell; daughter Marsha Roberson and her husband Donnie, of Roswell; grandson Dane and wife Gina and their son Toby of Los Angeles; grandson Kory Adams and his son Kole, of Roswell.
Also surviving her is her deceased son Don Martin’s wife Connie, of Levelland, Login to read more
