Martin, Eva Beatrice
Our condolence is extended Mr. and Mrs. P. B. Martin of this city, on the loss of their little daughter, EVA BEATRICE, who departed this life at 10 o'clock last Saturday night. She was born April 6, 1881,and was a specially bright and interesting little girl. For a year past she has been afflicted, and for the past four months has suffered greatly, but bore up under it with fortitude exceeding her years. She had the kindest attention and best medical skill, but her disease baffled all skill. She was perfectly willing to die, her only regret that she would leave her father and mother to whom she was greatly devoted. Her remains were committed to the dust last Sunday afternoon, there to await the resurrection morn. Peace to her memory. [Interment in Odd Fellows Rest Cemetery]

She flew on to her next adventure peacefully surrounded by her family. Mary spent the last year in Arizona, but her heart and soul were deeply rooted in Columbus. Mary was born and raised in Texas. She was an accomplished dancer in her younger years and had many great memories and stories to share. Mary went on to spend her next years being an advocate for children. She and her husband, Debs, spent many years being foster parents and trying to save the world one child at a time. Mary was a volunteer at her core and spent most of her time giving to others. She loved delivering Meals on Wheels, helping inmates get their G.E.D's and working with children in the schools. Mary could be found "playing in the dirt" as she liked to say or teaching her beloved water aerobics. She found joy sitting on her front porch swing talking and laughing with her friends.
