Alice Martin
March 22, 1925 – October 19, 2016

Alice Martin, daughter of Hachig and Emastouhi (Chakarian) Samuelian was born March 22, 1925, in South Boston, Massachusetts. As a teenager Alice moved with her family to Southern California. She worked at Continental Can Company and during the war became one of the original “Rosie the Riveters.” She also worked at Allstate Insurance Company and worked her way up to “Claims Adjuster.”

Alice married Al Martin on July 21, 1945 in Monterey Park, California. They raised their two daughters in Pico Rivera. In 1958, the family moved to Aberdeen, South Dakota where Alice worked in retail sales. Alice and Al returned to Southern California in 1978, settling in the Coachella Valley until 2004, when they moved to Laguna Niguel.

Faith and Family were important in Alice’s life. She was active in various church activities for many years. Alice loved sharing her life with her husband of 62 years, her daughters, Gerry Martin, Barbara Fisher, and her son-in-law Steven Fisher. She loved her friends and extended family, but mostly, Alice loved being a wife, mother, sister, and especially being “Auntie Alice.”

  2. I will miss your smile, your kind ways and your quick wit. You were a very special lady. One last time, “Angels on your pillow Alice.” Love you!

  3. M. E. says:

    In this time of sorrow, may these promises from the Scriptures bring comfort to Alice’s loved ones. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8. Peace be with you.

  4. I will always remember Auntie Alice as fun loving, compassionate and with a vibrant vitality. Even with contact limited to phone conversations, I could sense her caring touch and imagine her genuine smile. With Auntie Alice, we got what we saw and it was never enough. She was the real deal and it was a privilege and honor to have her share her life with us. Auntie Alice will always have a special place in my heart and I will hold her in my fondest memories.

    Love to cousins Gerry and Barbara. I am thinking of you.


  5. Thinking of the many happy hours we spent together playing canasta and making homemade ice cream during the time we were all living in Aberdeen! Uncle Al and Aunt Alice were always so kind and fun loving!
