Teri Ann Martin

February 16, 1960 - January 27, 2018

I was given the gift of life, and now I have to give it back. This is hard. But I was a lucky lady, who led a happy life. For this I am grateful. I struggled with a rare blood disorder but chose to be positive and focus on the beauty around me.

I was born to wonderful parents, James D. and Muriel S. Martin who now live in South Ogden, Utah.

I am the middle child of six. I say goodbye to my siblings; Sherryl Bigelow (Brent) -Sandy, Utah, Kathy Lukes (Dan) -Syracuse, Utah, Douglas Martin (Cyndi)-Toquerville, Utah, Wendy Walker (Mark) –Evergreen, Colorado, Randy Martin (Diana) –Sandy, Utah.

I was born in Delta, Utah, but grew up in Sunset, Utah and graduated from Clearfield High School in 1978. I married Billy Kennedy Jr. and later divorced. I lived in Scottsdale, Arizona, Michigan, and Houston, Texas. I loved to travel, taking in the beauty of this world, particularly the ocean and mountains. My favorite place to visit was Malaysia.

I loved sharing my talents in cooking, flower arranging, gardening, tatting, crocheting, decorating, and playing Japanese Koto which brought joy to me and those around me.

My greatest accomplishments in life are my children; Tiffany, Billy III, Natalie, Aubree, and Lacie. My only regret is that I will not have more time to cuddle my beautiful grandchildren; Zaki, Zahraa, Kal, Summer, and Zayna.

Please share your love with my family at the Visitation at Leavitt’s Mortuary 836 36th Street, Ogden, Utah on Friday, February 2, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm and the Celebration of Life on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at 1:00 pm, with visitation from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm.

I am grateful to Dr. Zoghi at the San Antonio Hospital and the nurses and doctors at the McKay and LDS Hospitals that cared for me and to Hospice that so kindly gave assistance.

So sorry for your loss! I didn't know her Randy but just knowing she was your sister speaks volumes. I think I remember meeting her a couple times when we were kids and thinking you had cute sisters! Love to you and your family!

Teri was like a second mother to me when I was a child. Her house was always open for dinner or play dates with her wonderful children, and my best friends. I will never forget her bright smile, her unique style, her lovingly personality. She is greatly missed.

My most heartfelt sympathies. I was lucky enough to grow up across the street from this lovely lady. She was a joy, a wonderful role model, a loving mom (even to the neighborhood kids). I’ll remember her and miss her when I do.

I’ll never forget the day I met Teri at Bed, Bath and Beyond in December 2009. She was using the register, answering the phone and helping a new employee all at the same time! I said to myself, that’s the kind of employee I need!! While waiting in line, I got out a business card to give her. I asked her if she was interested in another job and gave her my card. She said “This is a sign!! I have a sister with the same name, it’s even spelled right!!” We got along & worked together so well. I will miss Teri very much. All my cats liked her so I knew she was “good people” as we say in Texas!! She fought her fight with her health so well. God bless you all so much.

My family and I would like to express our deepest sympathy over the loss of Teri. May you find comfort in your loving memories and the warmth of family and friends. A scripture that has uplifted many who have experienced such a loss, is found at Revelation 21:4. There it describes a time when death and pain will be gone forever. We will even see our loved ones again who we have lost in death (John 5:28 & 29). It is our hope that these words bring you a measure of comfort during this difficult time as well. Once again, please accept our condolences as you deal with your loss.
