Obituary for Betty R. Martin (Neff)

Betty R. Martin, 91, of Lititz, PA passed away peacefully into the loving arms of her Heavenly Father on Tuesday, February 2, 2021 at Lancaster General Hospital. She was the loving wife of Paul M. Martin who preceded her in death in 2019.

Betty, originally from Lampeter moved to New Holland after marrying Paul. They raised their family in the New Holland area and after 48 years moved to a condo in Lancaster, prior to living their last 13 years at Landis Homes. They were both long time members at New Holland Mennonite Church.
Betty is survived by daughters Ruthie, wife of Vernon Martin of Lititz; Janie, wife of Everett Buckwalter of Smoketown; and a son, Doug, husband of Crystal Sweigart Martin of Brownstown; and was preceded in death by daughter Joanne, wife of Dale Buckwalter.

In addition, she was blessed to have in her life 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. One grandson preceded her in death. Betty was extremely proud to be the matriarch of this entire loving Martin family.

Betty was the daughter of Harry and Katie Neff of Strasburg. She is survived by two sisters, Marian Martin of New Holland, PA; and Evelyn Hostetter of New Holland, PA and was preceded in death by 5 brothers and 4 sisters.

Betty spent many years serving the needs of others. She was a great example of loving care to her children and grandchildren as well as many others in her life. She always had a kind word for everyone and was often referred to as “the sweetest lady”.

The family would like to express their gratitude and appreciation to the staff of Landis Homes. The care, grace, and love they provided for Betty and Paul were truly a gift from God over their 13 years as residents.

Private memorial service will be held for Betty’s family on Sunday February 21st at 1:00pm.

Paul Martin was a cousin to my father, Luke S. Martin. I first knew Doug by being in the second grade Sunday School class at New Holland Mennonite Church. While our paths haven't crossed for a number of years, I still appreciate the acquaintance. I'm sorry for the loss that you surely feel in the deaths of first your father and now your mother. But I have the sense that they lived their lives openly before God in Jesus, and in this, passed on a huge blessing to all their children and their families.

Betty was a kind, compassionate woman with gentle dignity. A beautiful soul. And that beauty is now lived out in her children and grandchildren. Much love to all of you.

Betty was a sweet and gracious lady. I think she personified the meaning of the word "helpmeet". Our deepest sympathy to her family. Conrad and Edith Graybill
