Wilberta Grace Martin


Our beautiful mother reached the end of her wonderful life on June 12th, 2022. She always filled the lives of those around her with love and joy. While we knew mom was nearing the end, nothing can prepare you for the death of a loved one.

Wilberta (known by family and friends as Bert) was active in Epworth Church, Phi Mu Sorority, Tri Kappa, Daughters of American Revolution, bridge and book clubs. She worked at Indianapolis Life, Eastwood Junior High, Carmel Concrete, and as a taste hostess at Kroger groceries. She married Dudley Martin (2014) in 1977. They enjoyed traveling especially cruising, taking care of their dogs and enjoying the grandchildren Amanda (Craig) Studt, Jeremy (Bethany) Carroll, Brian (Kate) Albaum, Kevin (Lauren) Albaum and seven great grandchildren: Alexis, Carson, Annika, Aurora, Nina, Brooke and Alana.
