Obituary for Mildred S Martin

Mildred S. Martin was born on August 3, 1932 in Powleys Island, South Carolina. She departed this life on March 6, 2019 to be with the Lord.

Mildred was the youngest daughter of Lou Ella Gainey and David Sindab. Her mother passed away when she was three years old. Mildred was raised by her father and her loving step-mother, Rosetta Sindab, whom she loved very much.

Mildred received her education from Holy Cross Faith Memorial School and graduated from Howard High School in Georgetown, South Carolina. The summer after graduating from high school she worked for a female restaurant owner who taught her the fine elements of cooking. At the end of that summer the restaurant owner asked Mildred what she planned on doing with her life moving forward to which Mildred replied “Well I’m certainly not going to be a cook”. Following that summer Mildred was asked to relocate to Wilmington, Delaware in a position as a domestic worker to a well to do family. It was there that she met, fell in love with George Martin.

Mildred and George were united in Holy Matrimony and together they reared four children; Jacqueline Martin, Davy Martin, George Keston Martin and Kenneth Martin.

Mildred was a preacher’s daughter and was raised in the Christian faith. She reared her children in the same way. Mildred was a faithful servant of the Lord her entire life. She would give you the shirt off her back if you asked her for it.

Although Mildred said that she would never be a cook, ironically it was one of the things she was best known for. She turned out to be an excellent cook. People would flock to her house on Clayton Street for laughs and good times but also for her fabulous meals. She loved entertaining and making people happy.

Mildred became a member of Eighth Street Baptist Church and a Deacon. When the church outgrew its space, they moved to 33rd and North Market Streets;, where the name was then changed to The Resurrection Center.

Mildred is a two time cancer survivor. She has buried her three sons as well as her husband. Her whole live has been one of survival. Mildred was a pillar of strength and often encouraged others to seek their strength from the Lord. In her church, she was also known for dramatic poetry readings, ofter encouraging women in the congregation who had similar life crisis to be strong within themselves.

She was preceded in death by her two brothers, Russell and Joseph Sindab; six sisters, Annabelle, Rubye, Eleanor, Sarah, Eva, Mary and Bernice.

Mildred leaves to cherish her memories; her loving daughter, Jacqueline Martin; granddaughter, Jasmine Lilly; great granddaughter, Kassidy Mason; a host of nieces, nephews, sisters-in-law and cousins. To all who knew and loved her, she will always be loved and remembered.

Ms. Jackie Martin, Family & Friends:
In Honor of Deacon MIldred Martin and her devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and her labor of Love, My prayers are presented before the Throne of Grace that the Holy Spirit would be the sustainer of your faith, your comfort and all that you need from him to undergird you with his grace, help and favor.
We reach out in these moments, in hopes to speak a due season word, to make a due season gesture that will comfort you that you are not alone. We are here with you praying to receive the Lord's guidance to be a sustaining support by mourning with you who are mourning and rejoicing with you as you rejoice.
This moment can be bittersweet by knowing the one you loved will be missed but having the consolation that Deacon Mildred Martin's name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life.
She is of the Blessed to have experienced Jesus Christ not only as Savior but as Lord.
We commit our trust before God, that his grace, his help, his comfort and his multiplying peace will be witnessed in you to be the easing of grief in Jesus name.
We remain blessed to praise the Name of the Lord Jesus.
Receive his comfort and more in Jesus name for you are loved!
Sister Dorothy (Bradshaw) King

1 Corinthians 15:55 Context

52In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 55O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? 56The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. 57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 58Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord
In Honor of Deacon Mildred Martin,
