Martha Stallings Martin

Martha Stallings Martin, 91, of High Point, NC, passed away at Brookdale Retirement Home on April 9, 2022, after battling Alzheimer’s Disease for several years.  Martha was born to John and Lallah Stallings on August 13, 1930, in Winston-Salem, NC. The youngest of five children, Martha spent her childhood in Winston-Salem and graduated from Reynolds High School in 1948.  She finished at Mars Hill Junior College in 1950 and received her bachelor’s degree from  Meredith College in 1952.


Martha began dating Charles Martin, a N. C. State graduate, in 1951, and they were married on February 22, 1953. Martha worked in several churches in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem areas, followed by a successful career in banking.  She retired early to spend more time with her grandchildren, and loved watching their sporting events, traveling where-ever they played to cheer them on.


In addition to enjoying family time, Martha was an active member at First Baptist Church in Sanford, NC, where she was active in many programs.  Some of her happiest memories were

traveling to the beach and celebrating holidays and special events with her church friends.  She also enjoyed, knitting, handwork, cooking, and especially following N.C. State Athletics.


Martha is survived by her loving husband of 69 years, Charles Martin, her daughter Marlene (Shane) Wright of High Point, NC, her son, Steve Martin, also of High Point.  Also surviving are her three grandchildren, Bradley Wright, Blaire Weavil, and Stewart Wright, as well as three great grandchildren.

Martha and Charles were beloved members of the Park Avenue Community when they lived here, always willing to reach out and lend a hand to help our neighbors. We were sad when they moved away but happy for them in their new home, but they were always missed. Our prayers for Charles and the family as Martha goes on to a better life.
