Judith "Judy" Martin Obituary

Judith Kay Martin was called home to be with her Lord and Savior (Jesus Christ) at the age of 83, on March 16th, 2024 at the Ida Emmerson Hospice House in Eureka.

Judy was born on March 9, 1941, in Eureka to Henry Axel Johnson and Audrey Louise (Wahlund)  Johnson who have both passed away. 

Judy was raised in Eureka and attended the First Presbyterian Church. She married Alvin Roberts and had twin boys, William (who passed away in 2006) and Christopher.  She worked at Meads card store after high school in 1958 and worked there until 1966. She then worked for Dr. Evertt Hunt from 1967 to 1976, followed by Eureka Family Practice for 16 years before retiring.

Judy met and married Jim Martin in 1967.  They were married for 56 years.

She was a member of Grace Baptist Church and served as church treasurer for many years. She currently was a member of Calvary Baptist Church.              

She leaves behind her husband Jim, son Christopher Roberts, several cousins, six grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren and multiple great-great-grandchildren, and many friends.  She is greatly missed by her husband and family, but they know she waits for them in heaven.

In August of 2023, she was diagnosed with liver cancer.  She decided not to go through surgery, radiation, and chemo, so Hospice of Humboldt was called to keep her comfortable.  They did a wonderful job of keeping her pain-free while also encouraging her husband, Jim.  We cannot thank her home nurse, Bridget, Jennifer, Debra, Anna, Simone, Pamela, McKenna, Dianne, Tia, Joni, Ashley, David, Andrew, Nicole, Katie, Maria, Katie, Matt, Tyler and others at the Ida Emmerson Hospice House enough for their loving care. 

Judy’s family did not realize the spiritual and loving impact that she had on the people around her.  The family kindly asks if you want to donate in memory of Judy, please consider Hospice of Humboldt.  Hospice also has other ways of remembering her. You can go to the “Hospice of Humboldt” website for further information.

Per Judy’s request, there will be no memorial service.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
