Flossie Martin

    Flossie May Martin, 87, of Caldwell, went to be with her savior Friday, September 24, 1993, at her home.  Graveside services will be conducted at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, September 26, 1993, at the Wilder Cemetery, with Pastor George Greenwood of the First Assembly of God Church, Caldwell, officiating.  Services are under the direction of Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.
    Flossie was born November 28, 1905, in Smith Center, Kansas, to proud parents Charles and Alice Scott.  Her childhood years were spent in the prairies of Kansas.  She so fondly shared experiences of her childhood life, growing up surrounded by the waving wheat fields and colorful sunflowers.
    On December 31, 1925, Flossie married Theodore Cecil "Bill" Martin.  They moved to Idaho with their toddler son, Eldon, in 1936, making their first home in Boise, later moving to Caldwell and then to Wilder in 1939, where they lived for 44 years.  After the death of her husband in 1984, Flossie moved to Caldwell.
    Flossie loved life.  Her family and her church occupied her time. She was a Charter Member of the Assembly of God Church in Wilder.  Her love for people was special, always having time for others and never turning away a listening ear.  Her love, compassion, and a gift of gentleness flowed out to those around her.
    Flossie is survived by one son and daughter-in-law, Eldon and Ann Martin of Caldwell; two daughters and sons-in-law, Ardyce and Bill Fisher of Eagle and Phyllis and Jim Ivie of Caldwell; two sisters and one brother-in-law, Hazel Davenport and Gladyce and Lloyd Smart of Caldwell; eight grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and several stepgrandchildren and great-grandchildren.
    Preceding her in death are her parents, Charles and Alice Scott; her husband, T.C. "Bill" Martin; her brother, Raymond Scott; her sister, Ethel Hubbard; and her grandson, Douglas "Dutch" Martin.
    Flossie May Scott Martin leaves with us a beautiful example of strength, joy, gentleness, and love.  We will miss our mother, our friend, a special lady, a gift from God.
    Friends may call at the Dakan Funeral Chapel on Saturday from 8 to 9 p.m.
