Elizabeth Mary Thirifay, daughter of Michael and Mary (Miller) Thirifay was born on 31 May 1894 in St Joseph, Buchanan, Missouri. She was the third of nine children.

In 1912, at the age of 18, she was working as a clerk for Block Brothers Clothing Company. The next year, in 1913, she was a stenographer at the Columbian Electric Company where she met Alexander. She married Alexander Woodson Martin, son of Charles Martin and Zoe Guesnier on 28 Jun 1916 in St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, St. Joseph, Missouri.

Alexander and Elizabeth had five children, Mary Catherine (b. 1919), James Francis (b. 1921), Theodore Frederick (b. 1924), Teresa Marie (b. 1932) and Betty Ann (b. 1936).

Alexander and Elizabeth were long time parishioners of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception (Catholic) in downtown Wichita.
