Bobbie B. Martin

9/17/2016

Spouse of the late Rev. Carey Martin. 

Mrs. Martin  was grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother with a servant heart who always put others first. A woman of great faith, she believed strongly in the power of prayer and her prayer journals contained the names of all who needed or asked specifically for her prayers. She shared in all aspects of her husband's, Rev. Carey A. Martin, ministry in The United Methodist Church as they served faithfully side-by-side at Lee's Landing and Wesley Chapel (Ponchatoula), Kentwood, Mt. Hermon, Eunice, Ville Platte, Denham Springs, Winbourne (Baton Rouge), and Algiers United Methodist Churches. She was a self-taught Bible scholar who led numerous Sunday School classes, Bible Studies, Vacation Bible Schools and served many offices in the United Methodist Women's organization throughout her life. She was taught by her mother at an early age to appreciate all of God's handiwork in the outdoors and loved to garden and see things grow.
