Obituary for Dorothy Lee Johnson Martin

Mrs. Dorothy Lee Johnson Martin, affectionately known as “Mrs. Dot” entered into eternal rest on Saturday, December 22, 2018 at the Augusta University Medical Center in Augusta, GA at the tender age of age 84. Born on Saturday, December 8, 1934 in Sparta, GA-Hancock County, Dorothy was the daughter of Eula Mae Battle Kendrick and Edgar Johnson.

At a very young age, Dorothy accepted Christ into her life as her personal savior and joined the Liberty Hill A.M.E. Church (currently the New Liberty Hill A.M.E. Church) of Thomson, GA-McDuffie County. She served faithfully on several boards until her health started to decline. As a young adult, Dorothy Lee Johnson Martin was united in holy matrimony to Norsie Lee Martin, Sr. From this union, nine children were born.

During her employment years, Dorothy worked for the former Michael’s Restaurant of Thomson, GA. She served as a cook for many dedicated years. Although Mrs. Dot was known for her cooking, by far her greatest role in life was being the family’s matriarch. She was the greatest matriarch that the family has ever known, the kind that stood on the shoulders of many matriarchs before her; the kind that exemplified dignity and grace. She ruled her kingdom with kindness and love. All her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were in awe of her humble heart. She embraced our family with love, and she enjoyed the good-times that brought family together.

Our dearest Dorothy Lee Johnson Martin is missed more than words can say, but it’s because of our faith in Jesus Christ that we know we will see her again, some sweet day. She is preceded her in death her husband, Norsie Lee Martin, Sr.; her parents, Eula Mae & Edgar Johnson, and a sister, Elizabeth Turner.

Her lovely memories will forever be cherished by her nine children, Barbara (Nathaniel) Usry, Annie Ashley, Norsie, Jr. (Darlene) Martin, Carri (David) Cummings, Larry Martin, Janice Mays, all of Thomson, GA, Bruce (Jenies) Martin of Augusta, GA, Debra Martin and Keith (Audrey) Wheeler, all of Columbus, GA; granddaughter, reared as a daughter, Angela (James) Grier of Stockbridge, GA; twenty additional grandchildren; twenty eight great-grandchildren; seven great-great-grandchildren; one brother, Chester, Jr. (Ruthie Mae) Kendrick of Thomson, GA; three sisters-in-law, Martha Wilson, Cheri Cartledge, both of Hanover, MD and Sadie Martin of Johnston, SC; two brothers-in-law, Jessie (Jocelyn) Martin and Lawrence Martin, all of Baltimore, MD; a devoted cousin, Mildred Gardner of Columbus, GA; a devoted friend, Agnes Taylor of Appling, GA; a host of devoted nieces, nephews, other family members and many additional friends.
