Mrs. Elizabeth “Betty” Martin age 86 of Lilburn,GA passed away in her home on June 26, 2017. After many months of battling declining health with unbelievable determination, Betty is now at peace. She is survived by her loving husband Ed Martin; sons Ed Martin (and his fiancee Michal Taylor) and Tom Martin (and his wife Mindy); daughters Mary Calderbank and Elizabeth “Gindy” Martin; grandsons Andrew Martin, Ryan Banahan (and his wife Michelle) and Matt Banahan; and granddaughters Kathryn Martin, Claire Calderbank, Gabrielle “Gabby” Martin (and her husband Chris), and Jennifer “Jen” Martin; and her great-granddaughter Grace Banahan.

Betty was born in Baltimore, MD and graduated from St Martin’s High School. After high school she worked at Tongue Brooks Insurance Company until she met Ed Martin, her husband of 60 years, shortly after World War II. She loved her religion, musicals, nature conservancy, current events, and PBS. But, absolutely the most important thing in Betty’s life was her family. We called her the “Dove Lady” because of her love of peace and hatred of war. In 1982, the family moved to Atlanta, GA where she became an active member of Corpus Christi Catholic Church.
