Alice M. Martin Death, Obituary – Alice M. Martin–Christopher, a resident of Honesdale, Pennsylvania, passed away on Tuesday evening at the Allied Services Hospice Center. She was 74 years old. Since they first married five years ago, Edward Christopher has been her husband. In the year 2012, she lost her first husband, Frank Martin, who had been her spouse for many years.
She was born in Honesdale on May 29, 1948, although both of her parents had passed away before she was born. Her father was Kosleck Sledzinski, and her mother was Josephine Martinkovitch Sledzinski.
She received her diploma from Lake Consolidated School in 1966 and then continued her education at Wayne Commercial School in Honesdale after she graduated with the rest of her class. Alice held the position of branch manager at the Honesdale National Bank’s Hamlin location for many years before she retired from that position. For the better part of forty years, she was a partner in the company that was called Phillips and Martin Concessions. Throughout her whole life, she was a dedicated member of the Ledgedale Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary and served the organization in many capacities.
Both the Greene Dreher Fair Association and the Southern–Wayne Chamber of Commerce have previously benefited from her leadership on their respective boards of directors. She was a member of the community that lives at St. Thomas More and St. Mary’s Parish in St. Thomas More and St. Mary’s Parish. Gardening, making candles, spending time with her many friends and relatives, and traveling were all activities that Alice enjoyed doing in her spare time in addition to the things listed above. Brother Victor Sledzinski and his wife Marsha of Ledgedale and brother Stephen Sledzinski and his wife Susan of South Canaan are also among those who have been left behind, in addition to a brother-in-law named Dale Phillips of Ledgedale and a large number of nieces and
nephews who have been orphaned as a result of this tragedy. Both of her sisters, Barbara Phillips and Elizabeth Reed, had preceded her in death: the latter was her half-sister. She did not make it through either of them alive.
