Marteil was born April 24, 1924 in Chandler, Texas. After retiring from her 25 year career with Western Auto she started doing crafts which she loved. She was known for her Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy Dolls. Her children and grandchildren were the most important things to her. She got great joy and pleasure out of preparing meals for them to share as they gathered at her house. Marteil had a great love for her church and her family.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her first husband, Ralph Rice, her second husband, Roger Barnebey and her daughter, Dianne Council. She is survived by her sons; Cecil Rice, Jr and spouse Roxie, John Barnebey, Jr. and Sherri Marcantel and her daughters; Brenda Bickham and spouse Sonny and Tammy Nelson and spouse John. Also left to cherish her memory are her 9 grandchildren and her 18 great grandchildren.
Pallbearers will be her grandsons. The family would like to thank Colonial Oaks Guest Care and Willis-Knighton Hospice.
