February 15, 1923 - December 29, 2020
I leave this physical earth knowing that I truly experienced love and life. I continue my journey with a full heart, a happy soul, and joy beyond measure. If you ever heard me say, “child of grace”, then you were one of my many beloved students at Resurrection School. I wish you well as you follow that unique path that only your footsteps can fill. If you recall me saying, “I didn’t get the jacks” then you are counted among my clabber playing friends. May you always have some meld in your sweet deck of life. If the phrase, “sleep with your passport” sounds familiar, then perhaps you accompanied me on one of my many travel adventures around the world. May you never have a dream that doesn’t turn into a plan. In my 97 years (born February 15, 1923 in St. Louis, MO), I have seen changes that could only be imagined in a science fiction novel. In my close to a century ride, I have worked and served and reaped God’s favor and protection. It was a privilege and honor to have worn so many hats in this life including daughter, wife, friend, Harris Jr. College graduate, St. Louis University graduate, medical technologist, teacher, principal, artist, avid crocheter, American Legion member/past president (post 8), VFW member (post 1114), past president/emeritus Indiana/American Society of Clinical Lab Science, charter member Alpha Mu Tau honorary medical technology fraternity, past president northside AARP, American Association of University Women member, tri-state Notre Dame Club member, RCIA instructor, Simon Bruté award recipient, St. Vincent de Paul volunteer, and faithful Christian. My most proud role, however, would be Mother. I temporarily leave behind Karen (Tony) Zaman of Phoenix, AZ, Dr. Dean (Candy) Brockmole of Dauphin, PA, and Jan (David) Jenkins of La Grange, TX. I can also count among my sweet blessings seven grandchildren and nine great grandchildren. After so many years, I am finally rejoining the love of my life, Dr. Arnold William Brockmole M.D. of Evansville and my two adoring parents, Frank and Martha Jakubiak of St. Louis. My final gift to those I endearingly leave behind is a quote by Madeline Bridges. “Give to the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you.” Funeral services for Martha will be held at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, January 06, 2021 at Resurrection Catholic Church, Rev. Raymond Brenner officiating. Burial will take place in St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery. Friends may visit with the family from 4:00 until 7:00 PM on Tuesday at Pierre Funeral Home, 2601 W. Franklin Street and from 9:30 AM until service time on Wednesday at Resurrection Church. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice Brazos Valley, 1048 N. Jefferson Street, La Grange, TX 78945 or to Resurrection Catholic School, 5301 New Harmony Road, Evansville, IN 47720. Condolences may be made online at www.pierrefuneralhome.com.
