Marie was born in Johnston County on March 2, 1929, to the late Emmitt and Sallie Holloman Martin. She was a faithful member of Antioch Presbyterian Church for over 50 years.

She loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ most of all. Marie was a loving wife and mama to Donnie and Vickie. She was always so proud of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marie loved them with all her heart. She always prayed for her entire family “Be safe, well and happy. Let the Lord be your Shepherd and you won’t have anything to worry you.” One of her last sayings to Vickie was “The Lord will give you the strength to get through.”
