February 2, 1941 - October 22, 2020
Mrs. Sara Ann Martin, of Saint Cloud, Florida, passed away on Thursday, October 22, 2020. Ann was a loving, faithful, and devoted mother, grandmother, wife, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. Her family deeply grieves her loss, but celebrates the unconditional love she gave so freely. Ann was born on February 2, 1941 in Coopers, WV, to the late Sarah (Nisewander) and Harless Cook. Ann attended Bramwell High School, and then continued her education at Concord College, where she completed her bachelor’s degree, in Education. While in school, Ann was a sorority member, participated in intermural activities, and was a majorette with the band. Ann was a dedicated life-long teacher. After her college graduation and marriage in 1961, she and her husband, Richard “Dick” Martin, moved to Morgantown, WV, where she began her teaching career in Preston County. Dick’s career took them to Buies Creek, NC, where all three of their children were born, then back to West Virginia. Each relocation brought a new teaching opportunity to Ann. Once settling their family in Lost Creek, WV in the early 1980s, Ann took a job teaching mathematics at Gore Junior High School. She completed her career 20+ years later, in 2001 at the very same school. Ann, or Mrs. Martin, as most knew her, taught her students just as she lived her life, with kindness, enthusiasm, and compassion. Following retirement, Dick and Ann moved to Southport, NC where she enjoyed the warmer temperatures and, above all, spending time with her loved ones. Many summers were spent with family and friends visiting, fishing, boating, and taking in the sunsets from their family home. Ann was her fullest self in the relationships, moments and milestones shared and celebrated with her grandchildren and children. Ann was preceded in death by her parents, and husband. She is survived by her three children and their spouses, Lisa and Kevin Reed, of Winchester, VA, Richie and Lori Martin, of Morgantown, WV, and Karen and Jason Veit, of Orlando, FL; her 4 grandchildren, Lauren and Erika Reed, Jacob Martin, and Sarah Veit; her sister, Mary Sue Hickock of Charleston, WV; her sister-in-law, Marilyn (Martin) Curtin, of Smithfield, VA; 2 nephews, and 3 nieces. Ann, our beautiful “Mom”, “Memaw”, “Nemaw”, will live forever in our hearts and be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. The family will have a memorial service in Southport, NC, at a later date.
