Janet Martin, 81

Janet Martin went to be with her Lord on Sunday, Aug. 21, 2011, at  
the age of 81 years.  Beloved wife for 60 years to Kenneth Martin.  
Loving mother of Linda (Leroy) Barth, Julie Martin, Renee (Mike)  
Klumb, Lori (Mark) Yakel and Randy (Beth) Martin.  Dear grandmother  
of Lisa, Leann, Lannon, Lindsay, Aaron and Kelsey.  Further survived  
by 6 great-grandchildren, other relatives and friends.

Jan was born and grew up in Merrill.  After she married Kenneth  
Martin, they moved to Grafton to raise their family.  Jan worked for  
many years at Tecumseh Power Products and retired in 1985.  Because  
of her love of the warm weather, Jan went from snow bird to a  
permanent resident of Bradenton, Fla. She lived there for 12 years  
with her husband and both were active members of Hope Lutheran Church.
Although we know she is in a better place, her passing leaves a void  
in our hearts.  She will be deeply missed by her family and friends,  
both in Florida and Wisconsin.

A memorial service is planned for Sunday, Sept. 18, 2011, at 2:30  
p.m. It will take place at St. Paul Lutheran Church, 701 Washington  
St., in Grafton.  You are welcome to visit the family, at the church,  
from 1 p.m. until the time of the service.  Memorials of your choice  
are appreciated.
