Former Ephrata resident Lillian Martin recently celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends. Lillian Esther Martin was born in Lincoln, Pennsylvania on January 15, 1915, 100 years ago.

Lillian was one of 15 children. She lived on Market Street. She had one brother who served in World War II that gave his life for his country. Lillian is extremely patriotic and loves her country. Lillian was always a hard worker and even worked with her father at the cemetery digging gravesites. In eighth grade, Lillian quit school to help out the family by getting a job at the local sewing factory.

She came to Jesus as a young teen when she attended the Ephrata Church of the Nazarene. It was there that she met her husband to be Ernest Martin. They had two sons, Larry and Dale, and a daughter, Sharon. Lillian stayed home with the children for a few years and then became a nurse’s aide at the Ephrata Hospital. She worked her way up to an EKG technician and then finally to a licensed practical nurse. She was one of the only nurses who knew how to use the EKG machine and was often summoned by doctors to go bedside and bring the medical cart. They relied on her expertise and always knew Lillian would give the correct readings. She worked at Ephrata Hospital for 32 years and retired at 69 and half years old.
