Mabel Martini Obituary
Mabel Martini 1921 - 2013 Our dearly loved "Mama" Mabel Martini was at home with her family when she departed this life on July 6, 2013, following a short bout with cancer. She was born in Bakersfield, CA, to Zina and Bernice Murray on January 25, 1921. Mabel graduated from Kern Union High School and Lufkin's Business College. She worked in the secretarial field until she married her high school sweetheart, Ralph Martini in 1941. Her family was her joy and caring for all of them was her pleasure. In her later years, she provided family and friends with fried chicken and snuggly crocheted Afghans when she wasn't reading or doing puzzles. She was blessed to remain living in her home. Mabel was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Harold Murray; sister, Wanita Ashley; her husband, Ralph; and her son, Bob. She is survived by her daughters, Jean Karr and husband, Terry and Sherri Salcido and husband, John; her grandchildren, Tony Josue (Cari), Todd Josue, and Tye Josue, Jennifer Falco (Chris), Jason Karr (Kristen), and Bobby Martini; and great-grandchildren, Jacob Josue, Nick Gianna, Grace Falco, and Kassidy and Braden Karr. Mabel also leaves behind her son's widow, Jacque Roberts; nieces, Marlene Weddendorf, Sue May and Jane Williams; and nephew, Alan Murray. In her final days her grandchildren were of great comfort and help. A graveside service will be held on Thursday, July 11, 2013, at 10:30 a.m. at Greenlawn Memorial Park, 3700 River Blvd. In lieu of flowers, please remember Mabel through or Hoffmann Hospice.
