The Purdue Veterinary Medicine family is saddened to learn that retired staff member Nancy A. Martin of West Lafayette, Ind., passed away August 27 at IU Health Hospital of Lafayette. She was 80.

Nancy worked as a histologist in the Purdue University College of Veterinary Medicine Pathology Laboratory. She retired in 2006, after a career that spanned 46 years.

A 1959 graduate of Chalmers High School, Nancy went on to attend the St. Elizabeth School of Nursing in Lafayette.  She is remembered as someone who had a passion for helping others and supporting many causes that were meaningful to her.  A long-time member of Reynolds United Methodist Church, she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

A memorial service was held September 4 at Hartzler-Clapper Funeral Home of Brookston. The family asks that memorial contributions in Nancy’s name be made to the Purdue University Center for Cancer Research, the Reynolds United Methodist Church, or a charity of your choice.  Click here to view and share memories and condolences.
