Obituary:
Ms. Mattie Lou Martin was born on September 8, 1925 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to the late Frank and Mary Lou Thomas. She entered in eternal rest Thursday November 1, 2018 at the Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital.

She received her education at the Mt. Pleasant Community School. She accepted Christ Jesus at an early age as her lord and savior at Little Bethel AME Church under the pastorate of the late Reverend Miller. She was a loyal and faithful member who served on the usher and mother board. She worked for Robert Tee-Ninety Scales for 38 years. She loved to be around her family, and watching Steve Harvey family feud and price is right.

She is preceded in the death by her husband, Saint Edgar Martin Sr.; son, Saint Edgar Martin Jr., brothers, Monroe Thomas and James Thomas; sisters, Johnnie Mae Akins, Jean, Jeanell Brown and Clara Richardson.

She leaves to cherish her wonderful loving children, Leo (Renee'), Cleo (Deborah), Frank Henry (Dorothy) Martin; daughters, Mattie Louise Martin and Linda Fay (John) Daniel; grandchildren, Fred (Vanessa) Martin, Katina (William Jr.) Knox, Melvin Lee Martin, Saint Edgar (Christy) Martin III, Tamara Martin, Keith Martin, Tabbetha Martin, Melissa and Fredrick King, Christopher Daniel and David Miller; her loving great grandchildren who she enjoyed dearly; she also adored her second family, Tee-Ninethy and Mary Scales and children and a host of family and friends.

 

Take Heart
The word celebrate isn't only about joy; it's also about observing, paying attention, and noticing. So go ahead and celebrate the life of a loved one who has meant and continues to mean so much to you.
Honor this period as a rite of passage, giving yourself the right to pass to a new stage in your grieving and healing. While you're celebrating this rite of passage, you will be getting a gift as well as giving one. It will be the gift of a loving, lasting communion that binds you to your loved one for eternity.
