Martha Huelsman

An earlier version of this Life Story included incorrect information about the middle name of Mrs. Huelsman's husband and the last name of one of her daughters. It also incorrectly described the relationship between Mrs. Huelsman and her daughter, Virginia Mae Huelsman.

GRANDVIEW — Martha (Dunajcik) Huelsman of Grandview and formerly of St. Louis died Thursday, June 16, 2011, in Batavia, Ill. She was 93.

She was born in 1918.

She married Willard Jess Huelsman.

A 1939 graduate of Washington University, she remained healthy, vibrant and active for her entire life. Even at age 93, she continued to work as a proofreader for a publishing house until earlier this week, when she had a stroke.

Mrs. Huelsman is survived by three daughters, Margaret (Michael) Gregory, Joyce (Kim) Palmer, Patricia (Hogan Nguyen) Huelsman; a sister, Clara Maurer; four grandchildren, Rebecca Babcook-Gregory, Michael Gregory, Rosemary Palmer and Charles Palmer; and a great-grandchild, Acadia Babcook.

Her husband, Willard Jess Huelsman, and a daughter, Virginia Mae Huelsman, died earlier.
