Janet (Jeffery) Martin

Aug. 9, 1936 – Dec. 10, 2021

Janet (Jeffery) Martin, Noblesville, passed away on Friday, Dec. 10, 2021, due to complications following surgery.

She was born on Aug. 9, 1936 in London, England to the late Arthur Henry and Annie Jeffery.

Mrs. Martin loved all animals. She would find joy in watching the birds, deer and squirrels run through the yard or stop at the feeders. She was also a bird watching enthusiast. She was most enamored with the woodpeckers, who always had a home in the trees outside her back porch. She’s been known to nurture a pet or two when they were sick. She found joy in knitting blankets for the humane society to keep them warm. She enjoyed working in her yard and loved her flowers and garden and enjoyed Spring the most. Nothing made her happier than a good deal found shopping. She loved everything to do with the Royal Family and was a survivor of WWII. She rarely missed a 4:00 episode of Judge Judy.

She enjoyed a cup of tea with milk and sugar daily. Everyone adored this sweet little lady who often stated “cold hands and a warm heart”

Survivors include her husband of 61 years, Ronald Keith Martin; daughters, Della Annie Martin, Kelly Renee (Carl) Freeman and Diane Louise (George) Bilansky; grandchildren, Amanda Freeman, Megan Freeman, Brent Freeman, Brooke (Nate) Kowall, Ashley Bilansky, Cierra Bilansky and Ethan Bilansky; and great-granddaughter, Aria Minnear. She is also survived by her nephews and niece, John, David, Peter, and Sally Jeffery.

She was preceded in death by her brother, Len Jeffery.

The family will notify loved ones in the future when a service is scheduled.
