Our beloved mother, Mrs. Frankie Carrie (Wilder) Martin, 85, of 3332 Berry Lane, Anderson, SC, has been received into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father at her home on April 14, 2014 after a long illness of Alzheimer’s.
She has been reunited with her loved ones passed on including her husband, Lee Waymon Martin, they would have celebrated 65 years of marriage on April 8, 2014; her father, Frank Wilder, mother and step father, Opal and “J C” Robinson, and a brother Robert Wilder.
She leaves behind 3 children, Diane M. Ange, of the home, Jimmy Martin, of Anderson, SC and Connie White of Spartanburg, SC two sisters, Lillie Waters and Inez Stone of Anderson SC; nine grandchildren; a number of great grandchildren;
She was of the Baptist faith and thru it all, God blessed the family, those from Rainey Hospice House home care and her close friends with her unforgettable smile. She laughed when she heard laughter around her and because of this beautiful smile, Mom was given the nickname “Happy Face”. She always responded to it for those that helped with her care. Unable to speak in her last years, she always gave a smile and enjoyed all who came to visit with her declining years. Many will remember “Happy Face” as a loving, sweet, caring considerate, giving wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend.
There will be a “Celebration of Life” in her memory at the home on Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 3pm to 5pm.
Many thanks to the staff at Rainey Hospice House for their dedication and devotion to helping with her care. In Lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of the Upstate, 1835 Rogers Rd, Anderson, South Carolina, 29621
The Sosebee Mortuary and Crematory, South Chapel, assisted the family.
