Sheryl Seiffert Martin, 72, of Iron Station, NC died on Nov. 6, 2023 after a battle with ALS.

She was born March 27, 1951 in Manchester, Conn. to the late Ruth and Alfred Sieffert. The oldest of four children, she graduated from Manchester High School, Bay Path College and Central Connecticut University. She was a team manager and  ticket counter supervisor in Newark, NJ, and station manager in Boston, MA, Pittsburgh, PA, Columbia, SC, and Portland, ME for People Express airlines for nine years, and then taught K-2 at Mocksville Elementary School in Mocksville, NC for the next 25 years. She retired in 2017 to spend more time with her family.
She loved to travel and cook. She was the first on the dance floor, the best party planner, and queen of all things orange. There is a hole in our hearts that will never be filled.

She is survived by her husband of 35 years, Dan Martin, children Daniel Martin (Kristen) Julie Camardella (Paul) and Sarah Hill (Brandon). Grandchildren Lauren, Matt, and beloved baby Daniel. Sisters Nancy and Laurie, and five nephews.

A celebration of life will be held at 10 a.m. on Nov. 18 at First Methodist Church in Mocksville. An orange dress code is encouraged.

Memorials and donations may be made to the “Sheryl Martin School Lunch debt fund,” and mailed to 15613 Louth Ct. Huntersville, NC 28078.
