Mary Lou Senn Martin, 92, entered into her heavenly home surrounded by her loving family and caregivers on Sunday, August 11, 2019. Born in Lexington, SC on May 10, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Jodie F. and Agnes Smith Senn and the wife of the late Paul A. Martin. Mary was a faithful servant of the Lord and a devoted member of Christ’s Sanctified Holy Church. She enjoyed studying the bible, spending time with her grandchildren, gardening and cooking for her family. She was a skilled seamstress and fisherman. Most of all, she loved to spread the word of God to anyone she met.
Mary is survived by her daughter, Karen Martin Walker (David) of Chesapeake, VA; a son, R. Wayne Martin (Doris) of Irmo, SC; grandchildren, Crystal Villanova of Chesapeake, VA, Kelly White of Palm Bay, FL, Jennifer Gates of Chapin, SC, and Johnny Barker of Irmo, SC; as well as six great-grandchildren, several nieces and nephews, and her extended church family.
In addition to her husband and parents, Mary was preceded in death by five brothers, three sisters, and one grandson.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Goldie Wallace, Louvern Benn, Shameria Gilmore, and Abbey Road Hospice for their wonderful and loving care.
