Let me tell you, ...

This memorial website was created in the memory of our mother, Betty Martin, 83, born on June 29, 1929 and passed away on February 4, 2013. 

Remembrance from  Michael, Jim, Diane, Bob?
Throughout her life, Betty was a fierce advocate for the underserved in her community as well as a dedicated supporter of the arts. 

We have followed Mom's passion in choosing programs for gifts in her memory. Gifts to the Ellington Fund, Duke Ellington School of the Arts will support students most in need - with essential supplies and specialized coaching.  Memorial grants to the Byrd brothers' funds will help ensure more talented young musicians are able to pursue training in both classical and jazz guitar.

Ellington Fund, Duke Ellington School of the Arts:

Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, Byrd brothers’ funds: (Select other and "Betty Martin/Byrd Brothers")
