Nancy Ann Martin, 85, of Taylorville, died at 10:52 p.m. Tuesday, June 27, 2017 at Memorial Medical Center in Springfield.

Nancy was born on September 10, 1931, in Springfield, Illinois, the last of nine children born to Virgil and Ethel (Wineman) Campbell. She graduated from Springfield High School class of 1949. Nancy married Phillip Martin on August 12, 1951, and he survives. Mrs. Martin was a charter member of Taylorville Christian Church, and taught preschool when they first began the program. She adored children, especially her own grandchildren. In her spare time, Mrs. Martin played bridge in three different clubs for over 50 years. Her social life was important to her, and she loved to look nice and visit with her friends.

In addition to her loving husband of almost 66 years, Nancy is survived by her three children: Pamela Martin of Taylorville; Jane DeBerry (husband Keith) of Taylorville; Christopher Martin (wife, Carol) of Springfield; grandchildren: Drew Martin, Blake Martin, Alexander Rickman, Brandon Rickman; several nieces, nephews, and cousins; and her beloved kitty, Sony.

Mrs. Martin was preceded in death by her parents and eight siblings: Dorthea Kendall, Anita Sorenson, Nedra Lueck, Alice Rockwell, William Campbell, James Campbell, Vernon Campbell, and Harrold Campbell.

A celebration of Mrs. Martin’s life will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, July 8, 2017, at Taylorville Christian Church, with a visitation an hour prior. Pastor Dick Wamsly will officiate. Burial will take place at a later date in Oak Hill Cemetery. McClure Funeral Home & Cremation Services is in charge of arrangements.
