Martine, Jean K.
Jean Kinkead Martine, 95, short story writer, died peacefully at home in Old Greenwich on May 15, 2013. Jean's cherished husband of 65 years, Layng Martine, died in 2006. He idolized her. Jean's five children: Layng Jr. (Linda), Gene (Pam), Suzanne, John (Nanci), and Anne Martine Cook; her four grandchildren: Layng III, Tucker (Laura Veirs), Mac (Shannon), and Remy Cook; her three great-grandchildren: Tennessee, Ryman, and Oz, were all nourished by her love, her wisdom, her love of words, her sense of beauty, her curiosity, her generosity, and her gentleness. In lieu of flowers please eat something delicious, laugh out loud, or hug someone - and think of Jean.
