Surviving is her husband of over 40 years, James D. “Jim” Martin, and his children, Jenni Rose Khamis (husband, Younan) and Doug Martin (wife, Laura Lea), both of Columbus, GA. She was “Grandma Janet” to James Douglas Martin III, Haley Grace Martin, Ari Khamis, and Asher Khamis. Also surviving is her brother, Johnny Mack Hendrix (wife, Nancy), and their daughter, Lisa Perry (husband, Shane, and children, Tony and Kayla), all of Tyner; and a sister-in-law, Wendy Hendrix of Jarvisburg.
