Arlene Elizabeth Winslow Martin

Arlene was preceded in death by her parents: one son, Mark Owensby and a stepson, David Ray Martin. She is survived by two brothers: Winford Winslow, Jr. of Greensboro, Wayne Winslow of Concord.  She has been married to William (Bob) Robert Martin, Sr. of Thomasville since 1971.  Her children are, Teresa Anne Owensby Saucedo and husband Vick of Thomasville, William Robert Martin, Jr. and wife Yvonne of Asheboro, Michael Manley Martin, Sr. and wife Brandi of Thomasville, Dawn Elizabeth Martin Essick and husband James of Trinity, Stepdaughter, Lillian Annette Martin Baxley and husband Alan.  They all knew her to be a “virtuous woman” (Proverbs 31).  She was blessed with nine grandchildren: Valerie Nicole Martin, Kathleen Elizabeth Martin, Michael Manley Martin, Jr., Angela Kennedy, Roger Dale Boone, Christopher Lee Essick, James Ray Love III, Lindi Baxley, and Michelle Baxley.
