Hannah Martin, 88, sewing factory worker, homemaker
Hannah Martin, 88, of Ephrata, went to meet her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Monday, June 10, 2013, at Lancashire Hall.
She was born in Bowmansville to the late Aaron W. and Hannah (Good) Wise. What a wonderful reunion she must have had, as she met Jesus and her dear husband, Wayne G. Martin, who went to his heavenly home in July 2009.
She was a member of the Ephrata United Zion Church. In addition to being a homemaker, she worked in several sewing factories throughout her lifetime. She will be loving remembered by her family for the kindness she showed to all she came in contact with. Her grandchildren will remember her "yellow noodles, little pickles and good pieorgies." She was a great cook and loved to bless her family with her good food. She was truly a Proverbs 31 woman, and her children rise up and call her blessed. Great is her reward.
Hannah is survived by her children: Irvin, husband of Danita (Brenner) Martin of Ephrata; Ruth, wife of Edwin Shirk of Ephrata, Irene, wife of Ivan Ringler of Narvon; seven grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; two great great-grandchildren; two brothers: Luke, husband of Anna (Weaver) Wise of Myerstown; Alvin, husband of Anna Mae (Good) Wise of East Earl; three sisters: Verna, wife of the late Paul Hoover of Lebanon; Anna, wife of Eli Horst of Leola; Laura, wife of Lewis Horst of Lebanon; and two brothers-in-law: Ammon Zimmerman of New Holland and Norman Hoover of Reinholds.
In addition to her husband and parents, she is preceded in death by six siblings: Raymond, Jacob, Susan, her twin brother Aaron, Ruth and Erma.
Funeral services were held June 14 at Ephrata United Zion Church, with pastors Jay Showalter and Duane Ringler officiating. Interment will take place in the Hahnstown United Zion Cemetery.
If desired, memorial contributions in Hannah’s memory may be made to the Ephrata United Zion Church, 408 E. Fulton St. Ephrata, PA 17522.
Arrangements by Stradling Funeral Homes, Inc., Akron/Ephrata. Online condolences can be given at stradlingfuneralhome.com.
