She was born on February 16, 1954, in Omer, Michigan to Delmar and Ruth (Swartzentruber) Kauffman. She married Ronald W. Martin on July 24, 1976. He passed away on August 10, 2014.

She is survived by her children, Phil Martin of Metamora, IL, Alissa (Myron) Swantz of Kalona, IA, Greg (Kathy) Martin of Delavan, IL, and Dana (Dani) Martin of Eureka, IL; eleven grandchildren, Jessica (Luke) Birkey, Elizabeth, Lincoln, and Rebecca Martin, Micah, Kaitlynn, and Andrew Swantz, and Easton, Barrett, and Payton Martin, and baby boy on the way.
