Marjorie Mae Martin

April 27, 1931 ~ December 23, 2023

Marjorie Mae (Plusch) Martin passed at the Hospice House in Vero Beach, Florida on December 23, 2023.

She was born in Schenectady, N.Y. on April 27, 1931 at the Lying-In birthing center, daughter of Irving and Dorothy (Woodward) Plusch.

Her childhood years were spent in Schenectady where she lived on Summer Street with her mother, father, sister Margaret and brother Roddy. She attended Draper High School and at the age of twelve began singing in the choir at the Trinity Reform Church. Music was her calling and she worked at the telephone company to make enough money to attend Hope College in Holland, Michigan, where she majored in music. That is where she met her husband, Raymond Martin, and they were married on June 25, 1950.

They raised their four sons and one daughter in Cliffside Park, New Jersey. Her sons Terrance, Glenn and Christopher went to see the Lord before she did. She is survived by her daughter, Pam, and son, Robert. She was blessed with five grandchildren Heather, Mandy, Andrew, Sandy, Winter and two great grandchildren Raymond and Lily.

Marjorie’s love for music followed her all through her life.  She sang in the choir at every church she attended. She was a member of the Sunrise Chapter of Sweet Adelines in New Jersey for many years and cherished the friendships she made there—especially with her fellow quartet members.

She was an avid reader and had crafty hands. She was a sales representative for Tri-Chem paints for many years. She also enjoyed traveling and phone conversations with her family and friends.

She moved to Long Island to be closer to her daughter as her health began to falter. There, she joined the Westminster Presbyterian Church in West Islip and quickly made a whole new group of friends.

After taking a fall in January 2023 she left her happy nest in West Islip and moved down to Sebastian, Florida, where her daughter, Pam, and son-in-law, Joe Cooper, cared for her until her passing.

Our deepest gratitude goes out to all the people at the VNA Hospice who helped care for Marjorie. It takes a special person to work for Hospice and we were blessed with the best. Also, a special thanks to all the caring people at the Hospice House, where Marjorie went for respite and spent her final days.

May she rest in eternal peace.

  • The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.

  • Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
