Neola Marie Martin (Trumbull), 84, of Martin, MI, passed away in the comfort of her home Tuesday evening, May 18, 2021 while surrounded by her family. She was born February 4, 1937, in Calhoun county, a daughter of the late Max and Dora (Horan) Trumbull. She married the love of her life, James Martin under the beautiful summer sun on July 28, 1953. Neola was a homemaker and helped at the school up until her 4 children were teenagers then worked at Johnson Sandwich Company. In 1989, Jim and Neola embarked on the adventure of entrepreneurship and opened Martin Tire where she managed the bookkeeping and scheduling. Neola was always involved with everything her children were in. She was a band parent, participated in athletic boosters, and would run the concession stand for home basketball games. She enjoyed golf, dancing, painting, and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was always the first to ask to hold the baby and absolutely adored having little ones around. Watching her grandchildren and great grandchildren was never a chore and she always said, "If I'm going to have one, I'll take them all." This idea flowed through to whenever family needed help, we help each other and there was always food and drinks for the hard workers. In her early retirement years, Jim and Neola turned into "snow bunnies" and would spend half of the year in the Sunshine state of Florida. There they would golf the days away and spend the evenings swapping stories with their siblings. Neola was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers: Josh Trumbull and Larry Hutchins, and sister Delores Smith. Neola is survived by her adoring husband of 67 years, James Martin; sisters, Paula Kay and Linda Lou; her four children, Rick (Lori) Martin, Deborah (Daniel) Boniface, Randy (Christine) Martin, and Donovan (Cindy) Martin all of Allegan county; several grandchildren; great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. She also leaves behind many other family members and friends who miss her feisty and stubborn spirit. A celebration of life service will be held at Martin United Methodist Church on Saturday May 22nd at 11:00am with a luncheon to follow. The family expresses appreciation and memorial contributions may be made to the Wings of Hope Hospice of Allegan.
