Nancy was one of the most kind, warm and caring people I have ever known. She was one of my mom's dearest friends and I have no doubt that Nancy, Carol and Shay are reunited. I am so grateful to have been part of the extended Martin family growing up and love you all dearly. We miss and love you, Nancy.

To the Martin Family, we all loved your Mom so much! I am so sorry for your loss. Every time I walked in the door when she would visit AZ the room would light up with her smile and I couldn’t wait to hug her. I feel so blessed to have known and loved her for the past 12 years. She was the most spirited, beautiful soul and I envy her flair for fashion and style…..she always looked like a million bucks! I will miss her so much but will hold her in my heart forever. All our love to your entire family! Adam & DeeAnn Hoster & Family

Nancy’s greatest gift to all was the love that she so freely gave. I grew up with Nancy and the Martin clan and have so many wonderful memories. Nancy loved all the kids just like they were her own. I was also blessed to work under Nancy and with Nancy as a teacher. She was so loved and adored by all the children that she taught and wow- what a wonderful teacher she was! Nancy was also there for John, Anne and I when we lost our own mother. She told us that she would “take over” and be our mom. She really became a true friend of mine. We would frequently call and text each other about different life evens. Your mom was a beautiful, loving soul and will be missed! Love to all the Martin kids.

Chris, You and your siblings put together a beautiful celebration of the bright, sparkling light of your mom. Indeed it is Nancy’s smile that I’ll always remember. I’m lucky to have spent time with her in Budapest, whale camp, at our different homes and yours. I’m grateful that she welcomed Rachel for Thanksgiving. The picture of Nancy reading a book to the children in Ghana captures it all. How did Nancy always look so radiant and classy no matter where she was?! Thanks for sharing your mom with us. We love you.

What a special memorial for your beautiful mother! Justbenjoying allI have known Jen for just a few years and the impact she has made on our entire family has been very special. She spoke of her mother with such joy and in such high regard as an amazing mother to her and her brothers. Jen is also such an amazing mother to her two children Zane & Olivia, she learned all of that through what her mother displayed with love and patience and just sheer fun,
