Martha Truman Obituary

    Martha June Chaffin Truman, 85, of Sciotoville, Ohio, and formerly of Kingston, Ohio, became a guest of our Lord on Tuesday, September 5, 2023, after an extended illness.  She was born on March 8, 1938, in Pickaway Co., to the late Perry L. and Hazel (Arledge) Gaines.

    Aside from her parents, and husband, Paul Truman, who also passed on the same day, of extended illnesses as well, June is predeceased by sisters, Roberta Jividen, Margie Keister, and Doris Hinty; brothers, Larry, and Perry Gaines Jr.; sons, Mike and Mark Chaffin; stepson, Dale Truman; and husband, Orvil Chaffin.  June is survived by sister, Linda McDowell; sons, Terry (Nancy) Chaffin and Tom (Denise) Chaffin; stepdaughters, Angela Burwell and Paula Truman; and daughter-in-law, Amy (Dale) Truman, as well as, several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

    June raised her family in the Kingston area.  She was a great cook; a true friend and second mom to many over the years; an ‘avid’ cleaner; a painter and wall-paperer for many-a-household throughout the years; and she was a true believer in closeness of family.  In her later Kingston-area years, she was employed by DuPont in Circleville.  After her retirement, she remarried and moved to the Portsmouth area.  June was a member of the Mabert Road Baptist Church in Portsmouth Ohio, and she and Paul were active in the church for many years.
