Kay Diane Martin Obituary

from Lowell, Indiana, United States


Kay Diane (Hensley) Martin, 81, Williamsport, passed away in the Williamsport Health & Rehabilitation Center, on Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, at 10 p.m. Kay was born on April 5, 1935 in Williamsport. She was the daughter of the late Lowell and Helen (Shields) Hensley of Pence, where she grew up. She was a lifelong resident of Warren County and for the past three years resided in the Williamsport Health & Rehabilitation Center. Kay graduated from Williamsport High School in 1953 and following graduation married her high school sweetheart, Robert Claire Martin that same year. She leaves behind her husband of 63 years; two children, Kathy (Martin) O'Kelley, Fayetteville, Ark. and Jeffry Martin (wife-Lisa Verhoeven) Noblesville. Kay formerly worked for Dr. Peter Petrich, in Attica and was the owner and operator of Martins Variety Store in Williamsport during the 1970's (formerly Wisdoms Five and Dime). She enjoyed gardening and making flower arrangements and was an active member of the local Garden Club for many years. Kay's main focus on life was raising her family. Kay also held a special place in her heart for animals, especially cats and her children were the center of her world. Kay was many things to many people, but most importantly seen was a wonderful mother to her children. She was their biggest cheerleader at sporting events and always there for them with advice and gentle calm. Kay fought a good fight, but in the end went gently into that good night. She was taken too early in her battle with dementia/Alzheimer's, but leaves her family and friends with a lifetime of memories. Services were held Oct. 19 at the Maus Funeral Home, Attica, with Pastor Jesse Stoner officiating. Burial followed in the Highland Cemetery, Williamsport. Memorial contributions may be made to Paws 'n Claws Animal Shelter.
