Obituary of Martha Ann Hoskins

Martha Ann Adams was born on March 7, 1938 in Bessemer, Alabama. She was one of two children born from the union of Eddie Lee and Lucille (Pippens) Adams.  After graduating high school, Martha would meet and marry the love of her life: Manuel J. Hoskins, Jr. and together they would be blessed with three children.

In her quiet time, Martha would delve into reading murder mystery novels and she enjoyed listening to R&B music, especially hits of artists like Al Green and Marvin Gaye.

Martha loved to travel, and would many times pick up and go when she felt the urge to visit her dear friends or family. She traveled to places like California, Alabama, Oklahoma and Ohio.

As a VERY vocal and outspoken person, Martha would always tell the truth. She would not be afraid to tell someone her true opinion and many appreciated and relied on her honesty.

Family was of the utmost importance to Martha and she cherished all the time she could spend with her them. Gathering at her home on holidays, especially on Christmas, was a favorite of Martha’s.

A beautiful woman inside and out, Martha was extremely proud of being crowned her High School’s Homecoming Queen.

Martha Ann Hoskins, age 82 of Monroe, Michigan passed away on Saturday October 17, 2020 at 3:21a.m., surrounded by her loving family. In addition to her passing, she is preceded by her husband, Manuel J. Hoskins, Jr.

She is also survived by brother: Michael Madison and sisters: Henrietta Hoskins and Ann Adams; grandchildren: Camille Hall, Eddie Hall, Simone Hoskins, Raven Hoskins, Elise Hoskins and Garen Hoskins; four great grandchildren: Keven, Kylah, Camia and Kari. The family would like to give a special thank you to Martha’s caregivers: Jamara, Linda and June.
