Long Description:
St. Martin's Cemetery is a small cemetery once associated with St. Martin's Catholic Church which burned down in the 1950s. It is located on S. E. 74th Street, West of Douglas Avenue. After many years of neglect, the St. Philip Neri Catholic Church approximately 4 miles north of this location was asked to take over maintenance of this cemetery. They have constructed a concrete drive which begins at one entrance, circles around to the north, and exits the other entrance.

Frances Colmie's headstone is a flat gray granite marker with an inscription that reads:
