Sandra Kay Martin Obituary
Sandra Kay Martin (Momma, Nanny, and GranNanny), 82, a native of Richmond and Poquoson resident for over 66 years, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, April 1, 2018. She was educated in Lutheran private schools, and then graduated from Poquoson High School Class of 1952. She was a Transportation Supervisor and later a School Bus Driver with Poquoson City Schools for over 40 years, retiring in 2010. Sandra loved driving the school bus and working with her fellow drivers and staffs at the Poquoson schools and in the community. She loved her family. Life was simple for Sandra. Her diamonds were her family. Her gold was her dear poodle Brutus. Sandra supported many charities, and they would send her address labels or calendars, and she would send them a check. Her joy was playing rummy. Her glee was catching Dottie with a handful of cards, and winning. Through her many hospital stays these recent years, “so sweet” is how the nurses described her. Sandra had a strong faith through all of her challenges. Her passing has left another scar on the Martin family’s hearts and a poodle that cries for her. Sandra was preceded in death by her mother, Dorothy Hogge; husband, Elwood Lemuel “Buster” Martin Sr.; and son, Elwood Lemuel “Buster” Martin Jr. She is survived by her daughter, Dorothy “Dottie” Martin; grandchildren, Sandy Martin, Jake Martin (Alicia), Jenny Martin, and Jessie Ocasio (Randy); great-grandchildren, Marissa, Natalie, Anabelle, Ruby, Oliver, and Luna; and daughter-in-law, Shirley Martin. The family will receive friends Thursday, April 5, 10:30-12:00 PM, immediately followed by a service celebrating Sandra’s life at 12:00 PM led by Pastor Brent Staul, all at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson. Interment will follow at Parklawn Memorial Park, Hampton. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to the Peninsula SPCA, 523 J. Clyde Morris Blvd., Newport News, VA, 23601, the Animal Aid Society, 80 Butler Farm Rd., Hampton, VA, 23666, or the Poquoson Volunteer Rescue Squad, P.O. Box 2099, Poquoson, VA, 23662.
