Nicole Lynn Martin

March 4, 1974 — July 20, 2023

Paola, Kansas

Nicole Lynn Martin, age 49 of Paola, Kansas passed away on July 20, 2023. Nicole was born on March 4, 1974 in Garnett, Kansas. She was the second of three children born to Frank and Joyce Martin. At the young age of three, Nicole started school and early learning studies at Lakemary Center in Paola. She received her high school diploma from Lakemary at the age of 21. At that time she transferred to TRI-KO in Osawatomie, Kansas. She lived in different residential houses, the last one being a duplex with her roommates Delia and Jessica. Nicole attended the workshop Monday – Friday. In the beginning she did different jobs, her most favorite was bagging Rabbit Creek products. She always said that her least favorite job was counting and boxing straws. In the last few years, clients spent their time doing crafts, exercising, going to the Ozone to swim, coloring and doing word games. Nicole loved to do puzzles and play card games. Pink was her favorite color. Birthday and Christmas gifts always included something pink. Her second favorite thing was butterflies. Butterflies of any and all colors. But the most important thing was spending time with her family which meant she got to have whatever she wanted to eat, could watch her favorite tv programs and sing whatever songs she wanted to. She loved the holidays especially Christmas because of the music. Luke Bryan and Garth Brooks were two of her favorite country singers along with Brooks & Dunn’s song Boot Scootin’ Boogie. She often attended dances after Ryan’s football games and the students always asked her to line dance with them when this song was played. Nicole is survived by her parents Frank and Joyce Martin of Garnett; brother Chris, his wife Jen and daughter Lilly of Columbia, Missouri; brother Ryan, his wife Sonya and sons Josh and Eli Garnett; Aunt Shari Friesen of Garnett; Aunt and Uncle Cindy and Fred Pracht of Kansas City, MO; many cousins, nieces and nephews.
