BEVERLY “BEV” MARTIN

Beverly “Bev” Martin of Kent, WA, passed away in her home on October 5, 2018 at the age of 72 after a hard-fought battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy.

Bev is survived by her husband Eugene Martin, son John Martin, daughter Jill Gutierrez; and granddaughters Anya, Grace, Julia, and Ava. She was preceded in death by her parents, Oliver and Helen Hendrickson, and by her sister Barbara Glavan.
