In Memory of
Lauri Lynn Martin
May 15, 1961–November 30, 2018
Lauri Lynn Martin, 57, peacefully passed away Friday, November 30, 2018 surrounded by her children and her beloved dog. This came after a long battle with cancer that ended 1 day shy of 6 years.
She was born in Albany, New York on May 15, 1961. She was raised in Omaha, Nebraska and then moved to Salem, Oregon in September of 1979.
She was preceded in death by her father, John Witherbee. She is survived by her mother, Dolores Witherbee, her sister Lisa Witherbee, her son Adam Martin, daughter in law Jasmine Martin, her daughter Bre Dunn and son in law Grant Dunn. She also leaves behind her much adored dog, Whiskey, along with many many friends.
She was a beloved G-Ma to her grandchildren: Julian, Jayden, Lance, Madysen, Daniel, Savannah, Janiyah, Cameron, Aalyah and Avery.
In addition to the joys of her grandchildren having pool parties at “G-Ma’s Day Camp”, Lauri was an avid reader, she enjoyed a great camping trip and was a devoted animal lover. She looked forward every year for the Farmer’s Market to open up in Salem so she and Whiskey could walk through it every Saturday.
Lauri’s Celebration of Life will be held at the Johnson Funeral Home, 134 Missouri Ave S Salem, OR 97302 at 11am on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
