Jacquelyn Marie Martin Seng, age 77, of Sturgis passed away Wednesday, May 30, 2012, at Thurston Woods Village.
She was born June 18, 1934, in Mingo Junction, Ohio, a daughter of the late John and Caroline (Hobson) Vehre.

Jacquelyn “Jackie” grew up in southern Ohio and moved with her parents to Youngstown, Ohio. She graduated from Liberty High School in 1952 as an honor student and was involved in many activities. She was an excellent seamstress, cook, gardener, and staying active was her claim to fame. She loved to golf, fish and work outside. No project was out of her reach. She loved to paint and wallpaper and helped so many others with their projects. She retired from First National Bank in Sturgis and had worked at many other banks in Youngstown.
More than anything, she loved and provided for her family.
She is survived by her husband, Al Seng; daughters Kathe (Marvin) Ailstock of Sturgis and Karen Summers (Marvin Stone) of Lynchburg, Va.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Ted Martin; and a sister, Jean Woodrum.
