Christine (Jones) Martin

July 8, 1952 — April 11, 2024

Clifton Park, NY

Christine Martin, age 71, passed away on April 11, 2024 after a long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.


Christine was born in the Bronx, NY on July 8,1952, the daughter of the late Robert and Teresa Jones. She grew up in Plainview, NY and graduated from Plainview Old Bethpage High School in 1970. In 1980 she and her family relocated to Saranac Lake, NY in the Adirondacks. Christine worked as a waitress for 35 years. She loved her job and her customers loved her! 


Christine was a kind, gentle, generous, strong, beautiful and funny woman! She loved to laugh, and her laugh was infectious. She represented all that is good in this world. She lived for her family, loved Hallmark movies and was always on the hunt for the perfect bra and face cream! Christine was FUN and never wanted much other than to see her family happy. Her faith and optimism were unwavering. She always said she’d do things “down the road” and we only wish her goodbye was a little further down that road. We will love and miss her every minute of every day.  


Christine is survived by her husband, Gerald Martin; two children, Janine (Robert) Rochler, Colleen Martin; two grandchildren, Kendall and Raegan; six siblings, Maureen (Bill) Demicco, Thomas (Cheryl) Jones, Barbara Jones, Linda Jones, Paul Jones, Jeanette (Keith) Tietjan; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. 


Christine was predeceased in death by her brother; Timothy Jones, two sisters; Janine Jones and Kathy Kulbaba, her mother and father-in-law Charles and Dorthy Martin, brother-in-law; Charles Martin, and sister-in-law; Dorothy Martin.
