Mark, Scott Joseph
March 12, 1966 - Nov. 9, 2018

ELKHART - Scott Joseph Mark, 52, whose appetite for cooking white-plate dinners for neighbors and family was surpassed only by his hunger for knowledge, died Friday, Nov. 9, 2018.

Scott was born March 12, 1966, to Arlene (Goshen) and George Mark (deceased) in Elkhart, where he was raised. He was a lifelong member of Prairie Street Mennonite Church, where he and his wife, Summer, were youth sponsors and he often baked communion bread.

He excelled at taking things apart, putting them back together better, reading, getting lost on family trips, helping others and pithy comments. His five-person bike made it possible for the whole family to tour together. He was loyal to his extended family, loved his children and was generous to a fault.

Scott’s first paid work in his field was to write an article for a computer programming magazine (including code samples) before he could drive. He worked with both punch tape and punch cards as a youth. He coded a complete custom financial accounting system for hire before he graduated high school.

Scott attended Goshen College and received his BS and MS in Computer Science from Purdue University. At Purdue, Scott worked with the Shadow Lab networking group (they wrote the book on TCP/IP). He was employed by Miles Laboratories (later Bayer) from 1991 to 1999 as an embedded systems programmer for medical instruments.

In 2000, Scott became an independent consultant. In this capacity he worked on Proton Therapy Cancer Treatment Centers. He led the validation effort for the first Proton Therapy Treatment Center in the Midwest. His clients included Indiana University Cyclotron Facility in Bloomington, Midwest Proton Radiotherapy Institute, ProCure Proton Therapy Centers, Massachusetts General Hospital and CNAO (the first Proton Therapy Treatment Center in Italy). He sat on the International Standardizations Board for the Communications between hospital systems for Radiation Oncology (IHE-RO).

Scott and his former wife, Summer Mark, are parents of Anne, John and Brian. Susan Mark Landis (Dennis), David Mark and Paul Mark (Kim) are his siblings.

A private service and burial will be held. Scott’s last act was to send flowers to a fellow patient. Give flowers in his name to those you love, but the family asks that donations go to Heifer International.

Martin, Allen S., M.D., 1930-2018

Allen S. Martin, M.D., Goshen, formerly of Shipshewana, died Sunday morning, Dec. 9, 2018, of natural causes, in Anderson. He was 88. Born, June 2, 1930, in Wakarusa, he was the 12th of 17 children born to Joseph E. & Mary (Shaum) Martin. He married Ruth E. Nussbaum Jan. 4, 1955, in Aibonito, Puerto Rico. She died June 17, 2014.

Allen retired as a physician in Lagrange County, Indiana, in 1994. After serving 1-W (alternative service) with the Mennonite Board of Missions in Puerto Rico for two years, 1953-1955, he studied at Eastern Mennonite College and graduated from Goshen College in 1959. He earned his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Puerto Rico School of Medicine in 1965. Following an internship with Lutheran Hospital, Fort Wayne, he began his medical practice in Shipshewana, where he served patients in LaGrange County for 29 years, assisting with the births of more than 3,000 babies during his career and providing medical services to patients in multiple communities because of his fluency in German, Pennsylvania Dutch and Spanish. He served as LaGrange County health officer from 1978 to 1991, and as county coroner/medical examiner as well as being one of a group of doctors who led LaGrange County Hospital (now Parkview LaGrange Hospital). He was very proud to have helped implement the EMS system for LaGrange County and train the first EMTs for state certification. In retirement, he served as medical director of the New Eden Care Center, Topeka, and volunteered his medical services at the Center for Healing and Hope, Goshen.

Outside of his professional life, Allen loved baseball, bird watching and golf. He developed an interest in bird watching at a young age when he and his siblings memorized the appearance and songs of various birds, and he spent many hours building Purple Martin birdhouses. He was a skilled woodworker, building furniture and cabinetry for family members, a longtime cattle farmer and breeder, and avid amateur golfer. While he loved the game of golf, it was the time he spent with friends and family members on the links that he truly cherished. On travels with them, he was blessed to play golf in Ireland and Scotland and on many of the best golf courses in the world.

He is survived by six children: Anita Martin (Russ Vernon), Yorktown, Indiana; David Martin (Debra Charles), Knoxville, Tennessee; Rebecca Martin (James Picht), Hudson, Ohio; Rachel Stutzman (Steve), Topeka, Kansas; Jerry Martin, Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Linda Martin Burkholder (Brian), Harrisonburg, Virginia; 14 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren. In addition, four siblings survive him: Edna Brubaker and Miriam (David) Hoover, both of Goshen; Rhoda Martin, New Paris; and Ben (Carol) Martin, New Market, Virginia. Also surviving are two sisters-in-law, Mary (Baer) Martin, Goshen; and Thelma (Hoover) Martin, Goshen; and a brother-in-law, James Bechtel, Goshen.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Ruth (Nussbaum) Martin, and 12 of his siblings: sisters Barbara Brubacher, Susannah Ramer, Ida Ramer, Emma Ramer, Bertha Martin, Grace Shirk, Ruth Brubaker and Suetta Bechtel; and brothers Daniel, Naaman, Jason and Rufus.

The family is grateful for the care and friendship shown by staff and residents of Waterford Crossing, who affectionately knew him as “Doc” during his six years residing there. They also wish to thank the caregivers at Morrison Woods health center, Muncie, and Elmcroft of Muncie Assisted Living for their care during his last few months.

A memorial service is planned for Saturday, Dec. 22, 10:30 a.m., at College Mennonite Church, Goshen. Visitation with the family will be Friday, Dec. 21, 6:30-8:30 p.m., also at College Mennonite Church.

Memorial gifts in Allen’s name may be directed to Mennonite Central Committee and Center for Healing and Hope, Goshen.

Martin, Paul H.
March 13, 1921 - Oct. 31, 2018

"At the end of each sermon he would hold out his arms--blessing, leading and containing us as a group for a few moments and then would say, ‘Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.'" (childhood memory from family friend)

Our dad held the official title of pastor but in reality, he was co-pastor along with our mother Dorothy. They were pastors of Mennonite churches in many places, including La Junta and Aspen, Colo.; Johnstown, Pa.; and Des Moines, Iowa.

Our mother, Dorothy Derstine Hackman Martin, was the light of Dad's life. His favorite picture by his side in these last years was a photo of the beautiful Dorothy as she was when they met. They were married in Souderton, Penn. on Sept. 3, 1944, and she died last year on Jan. 29, 2017. They had the four of us: Ed, Roger, Laurel & Sharon. We didn't have a lot of money, but we never felt deprived. We were rich in love, friendships and life experiences.

A centerpiece of our mother and dad's ministry was their inclusion of all people, including those on the fringes of society. Our home was open to everyone, and we as children were enriched by the steady stream of guests for Sunday dinners and holiday meals. Things didn't have to be perfect to include a last-minute addition to the table.

Dad set a powerful example for us in the way he practiced acceptance of all people. He didn't feel he needed to judge whether people were part of the Kingdom or not. In addition to a broad welcome within his pastorates, he embraced ecumenical and interfaith involvements and relationships.

He had a wonderful baritone voice and loved to sing. His favorite hymn exemplifies his spirit of service and openness: Will you let me be your servant….We are here to help each other walk the mile and bear the load…. I will hold the Christ-light for you in the night time of your fear. I will hold my hand out to you, speak the peace you long to hear….

Dad enjoyed his involvements in the broader Mennonite church. He was part of the beginning of Rocky Mountain Conference and later a moderator of that conference as well as of the Iowa/Nebraska Conference. He was a member of the Hesston College Board of Overseers, the Board of Education and the Board of Publications of the Mennonite Church, and the Iowa Peace Network.

He was a graduate of Goshen College, Ind., and after pastoring a number of years, obtained a master's degree from Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary in Elkhart, Ind. In his early years, he taught Bible and church history and was campus pastor at Eastern Mennonite College, Harrisonburg, Va.

He enjoyed church and family history as well as writing, interests which culminated in a number of small books. One we refer to a lot is "Jacob A. Martin, His Ancestors and Descendants."

Dad was born in Guilford Springs, Pa. to Jacob E. and Rhoda (Eshleman) Martin and was the middle of five boys -- Jacob, Mark, Paul, Joe, James -- the brothers preceding him in death.

We are a small and close family and loved him dearly. We enjoyed spending time with Dad – singing with him, sitting by his side, taking him for Sunday afternoon drives to count the Amish buggies or to the wonderful Wednesday evening hymn sings in the Sunshine Room, or just stopping by to say hi. We will miss him so much.

We are deeply grateful to the staff at Landis Homes, especially Cedar, the Cedar dining room, and Manheim House, for their love and care for our dad – singing hymns with him while doing his morning care; being patient and seeing goodness while responding to his daily needs; making a special milkshake for him at a tough time; repeating to him through his fears, "I have you, Paul, I have you. I won't let you fall."

As with our mother, Dad wanted his body to be donated to "Humanity Gifts Registry" to be used for medical education so that his death could help others.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Caring Fund of Landis Homes, 1001 E. Oregon Rd., Lititz, PA 17543

A memorial service is planned for Sat. Dec.1 at 11:00 am at the Akron Mennonite Church, 1311 Diamond St., Akron, Pa., with visitation starting at 9:00. Following the service, we warmly invite everyone to share a light lunch with us.

In addition to teaching children's Sunday school, she volunteered her time by serving on the Virginia Mennonite Board of Missions, and being a children's caregiver for MOPS.

In her spare time, she liked to quilt, sew and cook for her family and many friends. One of her favorite yearly traditions was baking over 100 pies and donating them to the Mennonite Relief Sale, where she also served as chairman of the Food Committee. This was a true expression of her servant's heart. Her most favorite pastime was spending time with those she loved. You could often find her cheering in the stands at a granddaughter's soccer game or hosting family dinners at her home. She loved being known as "Grandma Phyllis," not only to her own granddaughters, but to the children at church as well. Because of the way she served and loved others so genuinely and personally, she made everyone feel like they were a part of her family.

Survivors include her husband, Garland Martin; two sons, Michael Martin of Stuarts Draft and Rodney Martin and his wife, Renee, of Stuarts Draft; four granddaughters, Rachel Lester, Rebekah Dooley, Rayah Martin, and Rissa Martin; and three sisters, Janeth Duncan and husband, Phillip, Rosalie Moyer and husband, Ronnie, and Alvina Roth and husband, Rich; as well as many nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends at Springdale Mennonite Church, 170 Hall School Road, Waynesboro, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Tuesday, June 26, 2018.

Following a private family burial, a Celebration of Life Service will be held at Springdale Mennonite Church at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, with Pastor Seth Hankee officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations in honor of Phyllis may be directed to the Virginia Mennonite Board of Missions at 601 Parkwood Drive, Harrisonburg, VA 22802.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Stuarts Draft Chapel of Reynolds Hamrick Funeral Homes.
