Peggy Marie Martin, 86, of Fairmont, passed away Thursday (June 13, 2013) at her riverside camp in Fairmont.

She was born April 26, 1927, in Fairmont, a daughter of the late Madeline Marie Ford and Ralph Franklin Hadox.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Willis Lee Martin, whom she married July 13, 1947.

Mrs. Martin was a graduate of East Fairmont High School, as well as a 1947 graduate of the Fairmont General Hospital School of Nursing. She served locally as a military cadet during World War II.

Peggy retired in 1996 from Dr. Roidad’s office, where she served as his registered nurse. She previously had worked with Dr. Magunia, Dr. Baron, as well as the Fairmont General pediatric department.

She enjoyed local mixed and women’s league bowling over the years, and was a member of the Womens’ Bowling Association. She was a member of the Mary Priscilla Women’s Circle at her church. She loved playing cards, ceramics, fishing trips to Canada, and her second home on the Tygart River. She loved the water and watching her children and grandchildren swim and ski. They were the highlight of her life.
