Mary Lucille Martin, 86, of Duluth died peacefully after a brief illness on Thursday March 12, 2015 at her Westwood apartment. She was born March 4, 1929 to Ralph and Esther Martin in Washington, Iowa.

 
Mary was a clinical psychologist for many years in the Duluth area. After retirement, she volunteered with Habitat for Humanity and the Peace United Church of Christ. Mary was a handy, practical, and generous person. She was a rare combination of common sense and keen intellect. Mary enjoyed fires, dancing, and music, and loved her ‘adopted grandaughter’ Mariah dearly.

 
She is preceded in death by her parents; and sister Miranda Schoonover.

 
Mary is survived by five nieces and nephews; extended family and close friends Mary (Allan Sill) Graff, Judith Karon; her ‘special adopted family’ Laurie Berner and Mariah Joy Berner; and many dear friends.
