Funeral held for Ida Martin

Posted: Updated:
BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

The community said goodbye to self help founder Ida Martin who died last week.

Helping people was her life's work. She gathered all the churches' charitable services around Bluffton and put them under one umbrella making a streamlined system for helping those in need.

In 2011, President Barack Obama awarded her the presidential citizens medal the second highest civilian honor.

Last year, Bluffton placed her name on its wall of honor.

Martin was 86.
