Marietta Marie Martin, daughter of Bertha Washington Martin and Roberts Mims, born on July 31, 1975 in Springfield, Illinois, passed away on July 19, 2020 in Vandalia, Missouri. There was never a dull moment with her around. She was the life of the party when she was around, and she stayed with a smile on her face. She helped whoever she could. If you needed a place to stay, or something to eat, a ride, anything you needed she would do it. My mom loved to take care of her grandkids. She was our backbone, we depended and needed her for so much. Marietta was a strong woman. Marietta was so strong she took care of her dad when she didn't even know him. She had a heart of gold. We’ve learned, she taught us so much. 46 years was not long enough. My mom loved to go to yard sales, watch Lifetime movies, and doing her nails. She loved to spoil her grandkids, they were and still are her lifeline. She was a very strong woman, no matter how hard, tired she got she never gave up. Being raised by Marietta was such a joy, we shared good times, bad times, we fought, we loved, we struggled and for all that we are grateful to go through that with you. Our mother taught what life was about, making mistakes, righting wrongs, taking care of family and friends and forgiveness. She was the glue holding us all together. Marietta was our world, our mother. She will truly be missed. Surviving children include Nathaniel Martin, Dennis Shannon, Jesse Jordan, Caterrion Davis, Caribbian Martin. A loving, wonderful grandmother to her surviving grandkids. Surviving sibling of 9. Martha was the youngest out of her eleven siblings.
