Helen J. Martin
Helen J. Martin, 97, formerly of Clarks Mills, passed away Tuesday morning, Jan. 21, 2020, in The Ridgewood at St. Paul's Senior Living Community.
She was born on Sept. 14, 1922, in Pittsburgh, to Howard and Eva (Dill) Johnston.
She graduated from Carnegie Institute of Technology and worked as a social worker for several years before marrying Albert J. Martin on Jan. 18, 1945. They resided in the Pittsburgh area until moving to Clarks Mills in 1970.
Over the years, Helen was a volunteer for several organizations, including the Girl Scouts, Meals On Wheels and the Red Cross.
Her greatest joys in life were her family, the farm and gardening. And not necessarily in that order. When she wasn't gardening she would read a good book.
Helen is survived by her four daughters, Margaret Martin of Greenville; Barbara Ferrell and husband Steve of Cary, N.C.; Susan Jackson and her husband Jeff of Transfer; and Virginia Johnson and her husband Laird of Winter Park, Colo.; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and her sister Dorothy Ferguson and her husband Bill in the Pittsburgh area.
She was preceded in death by her husband.
The family wishes to express their sincere thanks to the caregivers of The Ridgewood at St. Paul's for the love and care they provided during the last year of her life.
Memorial contributions may be made to St. Paul's Senior Living Community, 339 E. Jamestown Road, Greenville, PA 16125.

Helen J., 97, formerly of Clarks Mills.

So many memories of goats, dogs and fun by the creek. She was a special person.
