In Memoriam

Lucy Martin

(Obituary shared by Lucy’s daughter)

We are sad to share news of the passing of Lucy Collingwood Martin, our beloved mother and grandmother (“Gaggy”), on September 29th. We appreciate her community very much—all of you have touched her life in different and important ways. Many of you are connected to her from her time as a teacher at McDonogh School or St. Stephens & St. Agnes School, as a part of her Bible study, or as friends from her time in the DC and Baltimore areas.  

Lucy was a lifelong educator and an extraordinary and gifted teacher of more than 30 years, a women of great Christian faith, and a dog lover of her Westie-poo Westley. She is remembered for her kindness, generosity, creativity, and love of children. 

In lieu of flowers, anyone who wishes to honor her life may make a donation to the Baltimore Humane Society
