Obituary of Anne T. Martin

Anne T. LaPalm Martin, 87, died peacefully at home on April 9, 2024 surrounded by family following a courageous battle with cancer. Anne was born on April 2, 1937 to the late Dr. Leo and Hilda (Lane) LaPalm at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, NY, where her parents first met at work. Anne was forever committed to faith, family and friends. She is survived by her husband, Dr. Justin "Jake" Martin, whom the Most Reverend Bishop James E. Kearney married to her in August 1960, as her father was his personal doctor. They had five daughters, Patty Carlson, Karen (Terry) Landcastle, Kathleen Draper, Eileen (Eben) Kennedy and Sheila (Clarke) Brown. Anne's family was her pride and joy! Since 1976, they lived on Tamberlane Farm of East Lake Road, Canandaigua, NY. Anne's love multiplied when she became the grandmother to 10 (Anders & Leif Carlson, Matthew (fiancé Shayna Pierce) Landcastle, Cassidy Draper, Emilyn & Ethan Kennedy, Hayley (fiancé Brent Oaks) Brown, Maddie (David) Wonder, Lane Brown, Chase (Amanda) Brown. Her last bundle of family joy arrived September 1, 2023 in her beloved great grandson, Henry Levi Brown (Chase & Amanda). She will be remembered as an exemplary daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister-in-law, cousin, aunt and friend. Anne's life was full of many friendships born out of her affiliations with her Seton Group and her Sacred Heart Academy and Nazareth College classmates. Her dedicated friends were too numerous to count and they relied on her attentive ear and life-sustaining prayers. In turn, Anne relied on her friends more than they knew. Her faith was an inspiration to many and her family teased her about having direct connections to Heaven when it came to prayer. She leaves behind a large legacy of love, celebration, strength and resilience. Calling hours will be held Monday, April 15, from 4-7pm at Fuller Funeral Home, Inc. 190 Buffalo St. Canandaigua.
