Torrington- Wyla Rich Martin 93, passed away peacefully at Valerie Manor on Sunday June 9, 2019.

Wyla was born January 23, 1926 in New York City to the late Irving & Helen Rich Baldwin. She grew up in New York City and Greenwich, CT and moved to Ft Wayne, IN. She studied Business at The University of Miami and a semester in Puebla, Mexico as an exchange student. She met and married Kenneth Martin on Nov. 5th 1950. They then moved to Harwinton, CT. They spent the rest of their time together in the Northwest Corner until Kenneth’s passing in 2003.

Wyla was a talented writer, singer, cello and piano player. She had a love for animals especially Bulldogs which she raised and showed for many years, because of her love for animals she volunteered for the Meow Inc., shelter for many years and was named volunteer of the year in 1995. She was a member of the Daughters of The American Revolution and many other clubs. She had loved the outdoors, listening to all styles of Music, Old Movies, being with friends and all animals.

Wyla will be missed by many friends that she has made throughout the years, especially her dear friend Tracy Hoskins and family.

We would like to thank all of the staff at Valerie Manor for their kind and compassionate care.
