Nila Martin

Aug. 30, 1937 — June 7, 2013

It is with great sadness that the family of Nila Kathleen (Weger) Martin, announce her passing on June 7, 2013, in Diamond Springs, Calif. She was born on Aug. 30, 1937, in Los Angeles, Calif., the daughter of Bud and Catherine Weger.

Nila was raised in Whittier, Calif., and graduated from Whittier High in 1955. She moved to South Lake Tahoe with her three children in 1969 and worked very hard raising them on her own. After several years in South Lake Tahoe, she moved her family to Kyburz, Calif., to become a stay-at-home mother and enjoy the hobbies she loved most. She loved to make her own ceramics and enjoyed the outdoors, traveling, fishing and gardening.

In 1991, Nila became a driver at El Dorado County Transit Authority and retired in 2000. During her nine years of employment, she was always known for making people laugh. She invented the “Sunrise Alert!” These were the words that would cause sleepy passengers, starting their long trek down the hill to work, to peer up over their seats looking for the sunrise. Friends and coworkers on the two-way radio would smile every time. It was a warning of a new day, voiced by a woman who was as beautiful and full of light as the sunrise, never letting us forget that it was there.

Nila is survived by three children, David Young of San Diego, Daniel DeJardine of Florida and Jean (DeJardine) Staples of Diamond Springs; six grandchildren, Dustin Staples, Adam DeJardine, Dylan Staples, Sarah Young, Sara DeJardine and Melissa Staples; nephews, Wayne and Gary Holumbo; and many other relatives, loved ones, and close friends

There will be a memorial service held in Nila’s honor on July 6, at 11 a.m., at Chapel of the Pines, 2855 Cold Springs Road in Placerville, Calif. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be sent in Nila’s name to the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund, c/o Marshall Foundation, P.O. Box 1996, Placerville, CA 95667.
