Margaret Marie Martin, 89, went to join her heavenly father on September 14, 2017, with her family at her side.

Margaret was born in Glasgow, KY, and later moved to Louisville, where she worked as a Buyer for a retail store. She loved the Lord and was Children's Director at Parkland Baptist Church for 25 years. She taught and nurtured 100s of children throughout her lifetime. All the kids wanted her to be their Mema.

Her favorite pastime was going to the Lake, eating catfish at the Lodge and making her famous finger lickin' coconut cake. As she would say, "there's always room for dessert." She had a heart of gold and was a selfless caregiver to her husband and mother.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, James Earl Martin, a Deacon and Mason, to whom she was married to for 57 years, and two brothers, Douglas and Donald Thomerson. Children include Linda Dadisman (Howard), Glenda Durnil (Michael) and Tammy Evanow (John Rocha), 6 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and one great-great grandchild.

Visitation: Monday, September 18th, from 2:00PM to 8:00PM at Evergreen Funeral Home, 4623 Preston Highway, Louisville, KY 40213.

Funeral: Tuesday, September 19th, at 12:00 Noon in Evergreen Funeral Home Chapel.
