Jean Truxal Martin
Jean Truxal Martin

Died on May 18, 2011 in her sleep at home in Kennett Square, PA from complications of Crohn's disease, diabetes, and cancer. She was in her 80th year.

She was born and raised in Lancaster, daughter of John and Edith Truxal. She graduated from McCaskey High School and Penn State University, with a major in Education and French Language.

She is survived by her husband of 59 years, Aaron J. Martin; their son Mark Martin and his wife Kathy of Hockessin; two grandchildren Taryn and Cody Martin; one brother, Jacob Truxal and his wife Carol of Lancaster and one sister Joan Ellis and her husband Thorpe of Ocean View, DE.

Her passions were her family, home, cat, photography, community and piano music. She volunteered for the Red Cross for 30 years. She encouraged and supported her husband in many community activities, and was happy with some monuments they created such as the Jean and Aaron Martin Science Library at Franklin and Marshall College, the gymnasium at the YMCA, the Anson B. Nixon Park, and genealogic research on ancestors.

Her graveside service will be held at the convenience of her family in the Conestoga Memorial Park in Lancaster.

In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please send donations to Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, 367 East Street Road, Trevose, PA 19053-7711.
