Born April 9, 1933 in Grand Marais, MN, Joanne Margaret (Rindahl) Martin, age 88, a resident of Chico, CA for the past three years, passed away on September 9, 2021. After graduating High School in Grand Marais, a rural town located in north-eastern Minnesota, Joanne moved from there to the more metropolitan city of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN working as a bank clerk. It was there that she met her future husband, Paul A. Martin. They were married in 1954 and moved to Southern California in 1955 where their two sons, Robert (Bob) and Lee were born. Joanne then settled into raising her family. New opportunities arose and the family established residence in Bishop, CA. in 1965. Joanne again established many friends there and enjoyed many of the activities that they organized. She also became a member and attended Grace Lutheran Church regularly along with many local/town events. After the passing of her husband, Paul, in June, 2014, Joanne continued living in Bishop until circumstances required her to move to Chico, CA in September, 2018. Joanne resided there until her passing. Joanne is survived by her sons Robert of Sunnyvale, CA, and Lee of Durham, CA. along with grandson Alan and granddaughter Jamie. Private services will be held at East Line Cemetery at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, November 6, 2021. Pastor Kent Puls officiating.
