Martine was born in Owensboro, the daughter of Martin and May Lamar Wiesman. She was a graduate of Owensboro High School and Jenkins Business Training School. Before her marriage to James G. Wilson, she worked as a secretary in the purchasing and engineering departments at Kenrad. After her three children were in school, she was a teachers’ aide and then the secretary at Sorgho Elementary School for more than 20 years.
Martine was kind, resilient, and willing to tackle any project from growing orchids in her greenhouse to painting the house. She will be remembered for her gardens, her sense of humor, and her creativity and skill as a seamstress. She and her husband were founding members of Trinity United Methodist Church.
She is survived by her children, J. Martin Wilson of Owensboro, Ann Snively (Jay) of Bellbrook, Ohio, and Jane Wilson (John L. Reynolds) of Owensboro; as well as several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. Martine was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, and all of her siblings, Mary Louise Baker, Evelyn Wells, Helen Marie Wiesman, Martin Wiesman, Jr., Anita Crabtree, Anna Marion West, and William L. Wiesman.
