Obituary for Margery Luck Martin

Margery Luck Martin passed away peacefully at home on July 18, 2017. She was born in Loudon, Tennessee September 13, 1923, to George Felton Luck and Betty Hunt Luck. After the passing of her father and brother, she and “Muthie” moved to Nashville, where Margery attended Peabody Demonstration School and Ward-Belmont School. She began her college years at Randolph-Macon College, but quickly transferred to Vanderbilt University, starting a family tradition that has persisted through two generations.
Living in Nashville after graduation, she met and married Raymond S. Martin, Jr., a Vanderbilt medical student/surgical resident from Jackson, MS. Together, they served the U. S. Army at Keesler Air Force Base, before moving to Jackson permanently to join Raymond’s family.
Margery was predeceased by her parents, her brother George Felton Luck, II, and Raymond, her husband of 69 years. She is survived by her daughter Betsy (Kane) Ditto of Jackson, son Raymond (Buz and Wendy) Martin III of Nashville, nine grandchildren: John (Laurel) Ditto, Margery (Chad) VanMeter, Anna (Justin) Peterson, of Jackson, Mary Hunt Martin (Allison Beatty) of Salt Lake City, Martin Ditto of Washington, DC, Molly (Hunter) Witherington of Memphis, and Margaret (Miller) Harris, Madeline (Edward) Waud, and Alex Martin of Nashville and 18 great grandchildren.
After Raymond’s retirement, he and Margery travelled far and wide together, often with dear friends and family, including the Jackson “Go Club”. At home she enjoyed bridge, tennis, and hosting and attending family gatherings, and she composed a poem for every occasion. “Gomma”, most of all, loved her family, who dearly love her.
The family is deeply appreciative of Angel Tucker, Tricia Manning, and Annette Dollison, who cared for her so well. In lieu of flowers, a memorial gift may be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation of MS, 2630 Southerland Ave., Jackson, MS 39216 or The Raymond and Margery Martin Endowment for Enhancement of Premedical Education at Millsaps College, PO Box 151191, Jackson, MS 39210.
Visitation of the family will occur at Northminster Baptist Church, 3955 Ridgewood Rd, Jackson, MS on Saturday, July 29, 2017 at 10AM until the 12PM Memorial Service at Noon.
