Cora Leah Martin


She will be missed as she was loved, much and often.

The memory of her quick wit and sense of humor will always leave me with a smile.

So sorry for your loss

I met Cora as an employee of The Good Earth and made daily visits for many years to the nursery. Cora was always helpful and the picture captures her great and generous smile. She will be missed.

Cora was quite the woman!

I first met Cora at Yew Dell Garden at a KNLA summer show. It poured rain all day and we had a chance to be lifelong friends from then on. You will be missed my friend. Cindy, Tim and I are grieving with you and will continue to pray for you and all the family. Peace be with you. Kim & Tim Fritz

Prayers for Comfort and Loving Memories

Cora was a special person who always put the needs of others ahead of her own. I’m certain she will be missed by her family and friends but her memories will live on forever! God Bless you and comfort you in the days ahead. Love & prayers, Mike & Kris O’Ryan

Sorry for your loss

We’ll remember Cora with a smile. My favorite memory was her Chili at your campsite cook-off. Condolences Mike and Joyce Barnett

Prayers to Cora and family

Prayers for everyone at Ammons nursery/Martin family. Cora was always an absolute pleasure to deal with and was always helpful, kind and passionate towards anything I needed help with while at the nursery. She was exceptionally knowledgeable in the horticulture field.
