Special thank you to her cousin, Tina Lathrop, for her visits and caring. She also was preceded in death by her mother in 1996; her father in 1991; her stepson, Danny Ray Martin; a sister, Geneva Martin; a brother, Raymond Frye Jr.; and aunts and uncles.

She was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6574 Ladies Auxiliary. She loved to be outside especially by a campfire with family and friends. She will be sadly and deeply missed by her loved ones.

The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 22, 2013, in Fitzpatrick Funeral Home, 220 N. 3rd St., in West Terre Haute, with a V.F.W.
