Martha Duncan

December 23, 1945 — November 28, 2023


Martha Loretta Duncan, a beloved figure in her community, passed away on November 28, 2023, at the age of 77. She was born on December 23, 1945, in Greenville, South Carolina to Noah and Lois Gilliland.

Martha led a fulfilling life dedicated to serving others. She spent many years working as a Medical Secretary at Baptist Easley Hospital, where she touched the lives of countless patients and colleagues. Her dedication and compassion shone through in all aspects of her work, making her an invaluable member of the hospital staff.

Beyond her professional achievements, Martha's true joy came from her family. She cherished every moment spent with her loved ones, especially with her granddaughter Willow Morgan Duncan. The love between Martha and Willow was evident to all who knew them, as their bond was unbreakable.

Martha's warm and welcoming nature made her beloved by everyone fortunate enough to cross paths with her. She was a kind-hearted woman who radiated positivity wherever she went. Her family and friends will always remember her as someone who loved fiercely and selflessly.

Martha's Christian faith was central to her life and she often encouraged others with God's love. It was her desire that Jesus be made real to others through her words and deeds. Martha was never in doubt about her eternity with her Lord and Savior.

Outside of work and family life, Martha found solace in various hobbies and interests. Gardening provided her with a sense of peace and fulfillment as she nurtured vibrant flowers and plants. Crocheting allowed her to express her creativity while creating beautiful items that brought joy to those around her. Additionally, Martha had a spirit of adventure and enjoyed embarking on road trips to the mountains, reveling in the beauty of nature that surrounded her.

Martha Loretta Duncan is survived by her sons Jerry Lee Duncan Jr (Carmen) of Athens, Georgia, and Bradley Christopher Duncan (Leigh Ann) of Easley, South Carolina, as well as her cherished granddaughter Willow Morgan Duncan. Along with her parents Noah and Lois Gilliland, she is predeceased by her beloved husband Jerry Lee Duncan Sr and her sister Betty Gilliland.
