Clarity and Direction About Your Living Will, Estate Planning, Grief, and Gratitude: End-of-Life Planner Deb Martin

Deb Martin lives on the south coast of New South Wales. She is a mother of six young adult children and the grandmother of two.

She has been home educating for over 22 years while also being involved in local community groups.

In 2010, after 20 years of marriage, her husband became ill and passed away. As a grieving widow, she suddenly realised the true value of having an end-of-life plan and was deeply grateful for the clarity and direction amidst her season of grief.

She has stood by numerous women, offering support and guidance through their husbands’ illnesses and their eventual passing. Deb also enjoys meeting new people, including those from diverse cultures and beliefs.

She is energised by ocean swims, beach walks, laughter, fresh food, family gatherings, and /…. road trips to new townships and quiet places. Prayer, study, and meditation have been her way of life for nearly three decades.

Numerous events in Deb’s life inspired her to write a book, sharing her experiences of her husband’s passing, seasons of grief, and the importance of end-of-life planning.
It is her hope to help others navigate this often overlooked aspect of life.

She is not just someone who understands the theory of end-of-life planning; she lives it. Deb has walked this path, experienced the emotional roller-coaster, and emerged with a profound understanding of its importance.

Deb has turned her experiences into a source of support for others, so they can create their own end-of-life plan, providing clarity and direction for loved ones, and not leave behind a mess.
