Obituary

Edna E. Martin, 98, formerly of Guilford, passed away on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, at Chenango Memorial Hospital’s Senior Living Center, in Norwich, with her loving family by her side.

Born on March 6, 1921, in Brooklyn, NY, Edna was the daughter of John and Frances (Richter) Kaiser. In 1946, Edna married her husband of 53 years, Navy Seaman George Martin. Together Edna and George raised four children in Queens, NY and relocated to the Norwich area, where George took a position as a Navy Recruiter in 1960. When her children were grown, Edna began working as a Post Office Clerk in Port Crane, NY until she retired in 1985.

After retirement, Edna ad George remained in the Binghamton area but enjoyed spending their winters in Florida. Edna particularly enjoyed taking her grandchildren to Walt Disney World theme parks during family visits. As the matriarch of her family, she loved hosting big holiday celebrations. George and Edna were fond of square dancing together, playing bingo, and attending Catholic Church events. After her husband’s passing in 1999, Edna bought a home on North Pond in Guilford to be closer to family. In the past few years, she lived at Chenango Valley Home and most recently at Chenango Memorial Senior Living surrounded by attentive and loving staff at both facilities.

Edna was a devout Catholic and a communicant of both St. Paul’s and St. Bartholomew’s churches.

In addition to her husband, Edna was also predeceased by her daughter, Nancy, two grandchildren, William and Michael, and her two siblings, John Kaiser, and dearest sister, Eleanor Darnell. She is survived by her children, Michael Martin, of Guilford, Robert (Patricia) Martin, of Olive Bridge, NY, and Raymond (Janice) Martin, of Athens, NY; grandchildren, Erin (Frank) Maiurano, of Guilford, Christine Maiurano, of Gilbertsville, Dustin (Frannie) Martin, of Wisconsin, and Norman and Mason Tansey, each of Hawaii; great-grandchildren, Mia, Gabriele, and Estella Maiurano; daughter-in-law, Betty Sue (Ronald) Christian of Norwich, and several nieces and nephews.

A Memorial Mass for Edna will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 29, 2019, at the Church of St. Paul, where the Rev. Ralph A. Bove, pastor, will officiate. Burial will take place at the convenience of the family at Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. Friends are invited to call at the Wilson Funeral Home, Norwich, NY, on Monday, October 28, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Contributions in Edna’s memory may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
