Obituary for Nancy Martin
An amazing, sparkling, strong woman started a new journey on December 31, 2015. Nancy Martin, 75, of Big Timber passed away at St. Vincent Healthcare in Billings after a short illness. Nancy was born on October 6, 1940 in Des Moines, Iowa. She grew up under the care of her adoptive parents, Sally Indreland Martinez and Henry Debotts, on a ranch outside of Martinsdale. She attended grammar school in Martinsdale and high school in White Sulphur Springs. Nancy was very musically talented. She was a piano aficionado who, throughout her late teens, was frequently found playing with a local country western band. In 1959 Nancy married Richard J Seitz from Chicago, IL and together they had five children. She later married Philipp Heinz and resided on a ranch outside of Two Dot. The ranch was sold years later and they lived in the Harlowton and Lewistown areas. After her divorce from Philipp, Nancy moved to Big Timber to attend to the needs of her mother. In Big Timber Nancy met and married Richard Martin. Nancy cared deeply for people and worked much of her life as a Certified Nurse's Assistant at Wheatland Memorial Hospital in Harlowton. She enjoyed horseback riding, working livestock, playing the piano, and cooking. Nancy was a strong woman who valued getting things done right, she will be deeply missed. Nancy is survived by her five children; Edward Seitz of Kingston, Jamaica, Deborah Seitz, of Stevensville, MT, Richard(Miriam) Seitz, of Blue Island, IL, Laura Seitz of Big Timber and Michael Seitz, of Missoula. She leaves behind four grandsons; Adam Ericson of Bozeman, Noah Ericson, of Plainfield, IL; Quinn Seitz, the United States Marine Corp; and Chester Seitz of Missoula.
