Nettie Martin was born April 5, 1928 to Helen Walker-Wilbanks and Dallas Wilbanks. She grew up ranching and working hard, which was a trait that she kept through her entire life and passed on to her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She enjoyed country western dancing and was a very talented dancer, teaching her great grandchildren, and great great-grandchildren how to dance.
She had two daughters who preceded her in death, Sandra Gutierrez and Sheri Diercks, and also her brother Larry Wilbanks.
Nettie is survived by her brother Jim Holder of Safford, Ariz.
She had nine grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren.
She was a proud member of the V.F.W. post 1704 Auxiliary and greatly enjoyed feeding the quail that would come in to her yard in the evenings.
Memorial Services will be held on Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 at 1 p.m. at the V.F.W. Post #1704 in Globe, Ariz.
