Una Beatrice Martin "Queen B"

1919-2016

Una passed away peacefully at the age of 96 at her home in San Pedro on March 5, 2016, with her children by her side. Una was born in Hyas, Saskatchewan, Canada on Sept. 11, 1919 to Hans and Karolina Eskesen. Una's parents emigrated from Denmark in 1912 and broke ground on their homestead in Canada, where Una and her siblings were born. Her family moved to Seattle WA when Una was about 9. She moved to California in her early 20's, finally settling in San Pedro 54 years ago. Una was a true romantic and lover of life, marrying 4 times and giving birth to 6 lovely daughters. She wrote beautiful poetry, loved a beautiful garden and a "good martini". She was compassionate, but not sappy; never too serious, with a sarcastic humor that kept things light. She also had a keen knack for cooking up a full meal from mere scraps! Una was preceded in death by her sisters Agnes and Erna, and brother, Frank. She is survived by her brother, Roy Eskesen, her children Pat, Michelle (Len), Cathy, Sandy (Devitt), Judy (Neil), and youngest Dana, who, along with Una's buddy Tracey, lived with Mom in her more physically challenging years, her grandchildren Rafella, Lisa (Mike), Tracey, Zachary, Johnna, Christean, and Alexander, as well as great-grandchildren Nick, Kris, Michael, Clarissa, Mikey, Kaylie, Sacoya, True, Steven, Zac, Christopher, Tresa and 2 great-great grandchildren. Also our dear family Ray & Cindy. Following the release of her ashes on April 2, 2016, family and friends will be holding a wake at her home to celebrate her amazing life. We will miss you Mom...
