Martha Carolina Jollie made her transition from this life on August 7, 2020, at the age of 93. Born 1927 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Martha is the daughter of the late Redmond T. Jollie and Adeline (nee Bowen) Jollie. Sister of the late Ruth Bolton, Lucia Niederhelman, Redmond T. (Sonny) Jollie, and Redmond T. (Tommy) Jollie. She is the beloved aunt of three nieces and a nephew: Karen Regina, Cynthia Sefton, Thomas Niederhelman, DDS, and Jolie Neal.
After early successful careers in the insurance/surety bond business and real estate, Martha found her true passion in Yoga. Starting out as an eager and dedicated Yoga student, Martha quickly became an accomplished Yoga teacher for more than 35 years. She was a proud founding member of the Cincinnati Yoga Teachers Association and a past president. As a long-time student of Eastern philosophies and a wholistic lifestyle, Martha, in her last role, served as Director of Yoga at the Western Tennis & Fitness Club until 2014.
A few messages from Martha in her own words: “To my family, I will be looking for you." To her Yoga students, "See you in next class! Namaste!" And from Martha’s family, friends, and students, “Martha – the free spirit – did it her way. Well done!”
Private family services will take place. Burial will be at Highland Cemetery, Ft Mitchell, Kentucky.
