Born October 24, 1930 in Hollywood, MD, she was the daughter of the late Lloyd Copsey and Ruth (Wible) Copsey.
Even though she was born and raised in Hollywood, MD, she moved to the Solomons area where she has resided for over 60 years. Her current residence has been in Lusby with her husband Bobby Mister of 33 years.
She raised her 5 children and worked outside the home as a waitress for many, many, years. She has worked at the Roy Roger’s in Solomons for over 25 years! Everyone who came into Roy’s always asked for ” Grandma” so they could get their dose of hugs and kisses. She also gave everyone a good dose of feistiness. Her work ethics are an inspiration to everyone. She especially loved the Christmas Eve tradition of dinner with her children and grandchildren. There was always good food, laughter, and lots of shenanigans. The family will always keep that tradition going. Grandma touched so many, many lives and will be missed.
Grandma is survived by her husband, Robert L. “Bobby” Mister of Lusby, MD; children, Deacon Chad and Bobbie Martin of Owings, MD, Pat and J. C. Abell of California, MD, Darlene Martin and John Kutay of Joppa, MD and Joe Martin of Lusby, MD; brothers, John and Joe Copsey; sisters, Bibby Thompson, Mary Hill, Clare Wallace and Peggy Faunce; eleven grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Francis “Buckwheat” Martin.
The family will receive friends on Monday, June 15th from 2-4 and 6-8 PM in the Rausch Funeral Home, 20 American Lane, Lusby, MD. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, June 16th, 2015 at 11:00 AM in the Covenant Community of Jesus the Good Shepherd Catholic Church, 1601 West Mt. Harmony Rd., Owings, MD 20736 with Father Michael King officiating. Interment will follow in Southern Memorial Gardens Cemetery, Dunkirk, MD.
