Jane R. Martin

On June 6, 2018, Jane R. Martin our loving matriarch, daughter, wife, grandmother, great grandmother and friend passed away at the age of 77. Jane was preceded in death by her parents Robert and Marion Rothwell, her son Michael R. Martin, and her grandson Joey Martin. Jane is survived by her husband of 57 years Ronald G. Martin, her children: Kimberly-husband Robert, Patrick-wife Kris, Ronald-wife Mary, and Lauretta-husband Dean, her grandchildren: Ashley-husband Adam, Cory, Elle, Danielle, Brody, McKenzie, Michael and great granddaughter Joey. She was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts and grew up in Fairhaven and the surrounding areas. Once married she and her husband started their family in Mattapoisett. Even though Jane and Ron ultimately moved their family to Arizona and then later to El Paso, Texas-Santa Teresa, New Mexico where she remained until her death, she was forever deeply loyal and proud of where she was born and grew up. This was very apparent in her choice of sports teams: The New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox and the Boston Celtics. She believed in giving back to those in need and did so during her lifetime without reserve. Her family can think of no better way to honor her memory than to continue on with her giving spirit by making a donation in lieu of flowers. Her personal charitable donations were made to the ASPCA, The Wounded Warrior Project and her local Humane Society, among others: The New England Patriots Charitable Foundation, The Red Sox Foundation, and the Boston Celtics Shamrock Foundations are community based programs that directly benefit children in need. Jane was a vivacious spirit, loved to travel, and cherished time with her family and friends. Her infectious laughter will live on for eternity. Although she will be greatly missed she is now athome and in peace in her final resting place at St. Anthony’s Cemetery in Mattapoisett,Massachusetts with her son Michael.
