Martha Baldwin Troup

June 12, 1927 — March 5, 2021

Martha Baldwin Troup, daughter of the late James and Mildred Baldwin, passed away peacefully on March 5, 2021. Martha was born in New Britain, CT where she attended local schools and later went on to attend Stephens Jr. College in Columbia, MO. Martha met and married her best friend and the love of her life, Prentice M. Troup and they started their family in Berlin, CT. Before marriage and after raising her family, she was employed doing secretarial and bookkeeping work. Martha is survived by her children, daughter Andrea Luty of Southington, CT; son Carl Troup and his wife, Doreen, of New Hampton, NH; son Ned Troup and his wife, Cortney, of Berlin, CT; grandchildren, Molly Troup and her fiancé Gavin McDonald, Amanda Edmunds and her husband Brian Edmunds, Prentice Troup and his girlfriend Jordan Ray, Benjamin and Alexandra Troup; step-grandchildren Sydney and Coleman Sharpe; sister, Jane Rackliffe; sister in-law, June Kingsbury, and several nieces and nephews. Martha was predeceased by her best friend and loving husband of over 60 years, Prentice M. Troup; son George Troup of Berlin, CT; and son in-law Joseph Luty of Southington, CT. Martha engaged in her community through volunteering, golf, and attending church. While living in Connecticut, Martha volunteered as a blood aide for the Red Cross bloodmobile, she was a member of the Junior League of New Britain, she served on the Board of Directors and the Public Affairs and Public Relations Committees for the local YWCA chapter, and also served on the Woman’s Committee at the New Britain Museum of American Art. Martha was a member of the Kensington Congregational Church and served on the diaconate and as the chairman of that body. In 1987 she and her husband retired to Washington, NC where they enjoyed watching the blue herons fishing on the Pamlico River and playing golf year-round. In Washington, Martha belonged to the First Presbyterian Church and volunteered at the Beaufort County Hospital. Martha was an avid golfer and belonged to the Washington Yacht and Country Club and was a lifelong member at Shuttle Meadow Country Club in Berlin, CT. Spending time on the golf green with her husband, children, and friends was a cherished pastime. In 2001 Martha and her husband moved back north to the Sugar Hill Retirement Community in Wolfeboro, NH. There she volunteered at Huggins Hospital. Besides golf, Martha also enjoyed playing bridge and was a voracious scrabble opponent in family games, both in person and digitally. Martha received a great deal of joy in maintaining friendships and keeping up with family over distances through the lost art of sending and receiving handwritten letters. Martha also relished taking trips to the ocean, reading mystery novels, and enjoying a glass of Chardonnay with her family. The family extends their deepest gratitude to the dedicated nurses and staff at the Meredith Bay Colony Club in Meredith, NH, who took wonderful care of Martha, especially in her in her final years. There are no calling hours. There will be a gathering for family and friends to celebrate her life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to Central NH VNA & Hospice (www.centralvna.org). Condolences may be offered at www.baker-gagnefuneralhomes.com
