PRAIRIE DU SAC—Betty J. Martin, 85, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2020, at her home. She was born March 16, 1934, in Marinette, to Charles and Bessie (Stewart) Wickman. Betty grew up on the family farm, in Porterfield, and graduated from Marinette High School with the Class of 1952. She went on to attend the Lutheran Deaconess Hospital School of Nursing in Minneapolis, from which she graduated in 1955. While there, she met her future husband, Gerald A.
