Obituary for Astrid Martin

Astrid Martin, 90, of Florham Park, NJ died on August 22nd, 2018 after a lengthy illness.         

Born on July 9th, 1928 in Ghent, NY, she was one of six children who attended the same one-room schoolhouse where her father, Walter Remmler, was the teacher.  At age 11, she was separated from her mother, Louise, and siblings Jackie and Harold, during her mother's visit to Alsace, Germany.  Shortly after landing in Germany, World War II broke out and the family was unable to be reunited for seven years.

Astrid and her sisters, Livia and Jackie-Lotty, spent their summers waiting tables together at the Chatham Bars Inn on Cape Cod—there they called their threesome "the Schnookies"-- before she went to St. Lawrence University for her B.A., later adding a Masters degree from Kean College in Union, NJ.  For twenty-five years, Astrid enjoyed being an elementary teacher in the Morris County school district.

Astrid's first husband, William Koch, died in 1956, where they lived in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, and had a daughter, Marta Jo, and a son, William Koch, IV.   In 1960, she married her second husband, Robert Bosworth, adding two step children, Howard and Julie, to the family and a son, Mark.  They lived for many years in Convent Station, New Jersey.  Widowed again, Astrid found and married Jim Martin in July, 1983, adding two more step children to the family, Jeff and Susan Martin.  Together, the couple settled in Basking Ridge, New Jersey.  

Astrid, who was an active member of the Morristown Unitarian Fellowship and the Short Hills Ski Club, was known for her love of family and her delight in a good bargain.  She is survived by daughter Marta,  sons Bill and Mark, step children Howard, Julie, Susan and Jeff, grandchildren Caitlin, Saiya and Ezra
