Gail Lee Martin passed away from a heart attack on January 17, 2013. She fell breaking a hip in December.

You can read her obituary online and leave a message in the guestbook.

She was 88 years old. Three more books were in the works. Collaborating with her daughter, Virginia Allain, she was collecting material for a book about her aunt’s life as a missionary in Alaska, a book about her great-grandfather in the Civil War and a book about her own life that would follow-up My Flint Hills Childhood.
