Betty Martin
Dec. 27, 1932 - Apr. 11, 2014
Date of Funeral: Apr. 15, 2014

God decided he needed a quilter in heaven, so He chose
Betty Jean Anderson Martin from Paul, Idaho. On April 11, 2014 God sent His angels to gather her in their arms and take her to His kingdom. She will be greeted by her daughter, Brenda, her parents Amos and Bessie Anderson, and many other relatives and friends.
Betty was born to Amos and Bessie Anderson from the Jackson area on December 27, 1932. She attended schools in Rupert, and graduated from Rupert High School in 1951. She married the love of her life, Leonard Martin, on March 17. 1953. Betty and Leonard had four children: Douglas (Crystal) Martin, Brenda (Mitch) Williams, Randee (Connie) Martin, and Melody (Earl) Wysong. She also had many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. They just celebrated 61 years of life together.
Betty loved to quilt and make new friends. Being an excellent cook was one of her many talents. She was very active in the community serving on many boards throughout her life. Spending time at the Minidoka Senior Center and helping others in need was her passion. But most of all was her commitment to God and her family. She served her church in many capacities doing whatever needed to be done. If Betty could be described in one sentence, it would be: “A stranger was someone she hadn’t met yet.”
Betty is survived by her husband, Leonard, her children, Douglas, Randee, and Melody. Her siblings are: Amos (Jack) Anderson, Tennessee, Jerry (Laura) Anderson, Boise, Jennie (K) Cranney, Twin Falls, and Ron (Deb) Anderson, Rupert. She was preceded in death by her parents, daughter, and brother.
Funeral services will be held 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 15, 2014 at Trinity Lutheran Church 909 8th Street Rupert, Id. Viewing for family and friends will be held from 6-8:00 p.m. Monday April, 14, 2014 at Hansen Mortuary and for one hour prior to the services at the church. Services are under the direction of Joel Heward Hansen Mortuary. In lieu of flowers Betty asks that any donations be made to Minidoka Senior Center or Trinity Lutheran Church.
