On June 25, 2022, Pauline Elizabeth Martin, of Mesa, Arizona, was called home to God.
Pauline was born nearly 101 years ago in New Castle, Pennsylvania.
She graduated from New Castle High School and following WWII, married John B. (Jack) Martin of Ellwood City, Pennsylvania. In her early years, Pauline worked as a telephone switchboard operator and then for more than 40 years with the Pennsylvania State Employment Bureau, where she retired at age 72. Pauline was a devoted member of Calvin United Presbyterian Church in Ellwood City and more recently, Red Mountain United Methodist Church in Mesa, Arizona. She had a passion for the Meals on Wheels programs and for supporting youth. In her earlier life, she was an enthusiastic and very good bowler. A perfect day for Pauline was an early, long, and brisk walk, visits with friends, snuggling her granddogs and celebrating Happy Hour with a glass of wine.
Pauline was predeceased by her parents, Paul Burrows and Hazel Keelen Burrows and her husband, Jack. She is survived by her son, Paul Martin and daughter-in-law, Lynn Martin.
A Committal Service will be held on Friday July 8, 2022 at 10 am in the Chapel at the Castleview Cemetery in New Castle PA.
Local Arrangements entrusted to the Marshall Funeral Home, Ellwood City.
Gifts in her memory may be made to Calvin United Presbyterian Church, 615 Crescent Ave, Ellwood City, PA 16117 or Suncrest Hospice, 4650 E Cotton Center Blvd #250, Phoenix, AZ 85040.
