Juliet Rosann Martin, 42, of Farmington, N.M., passed away on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, in her residence. She was born Feb. 10, 1975, in Pittsburgh, to Frank and Antoinette (DiFranco) Meledandri Jr. She was married to Gregory P. Martin, of Farmington, N.M. for 14 years. Juliet was a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in chemistry, and received her MSED from Duquesne University. Juliet loved her family and they were most central to her life. Everything from playing the piano, watching little league baseball and working on projects with her children was enjoyable to her because it allowed her to spend time with her family. She also became passionate about long distance running and coaching. She achieved close to 20 race finish medals and spent several years as a certified run coach. Juliet then learned to ride a motorcycle and acquired a Harley Davidson. She customized it with purple accents, and would spend hours cleaning and polishing the chrome for the next ride. She had deep friendships with many people across the country that she maintained no matter the distance between them. Her students were also very important to her, even outside of the classroom. She took great pride watching and hearing about her students achieving important milestones in their education and their lives. She is survived by her husband, Gregory P. Martin, of 14 years; three children, James, Nicholas and Angelina Martin; her parents, Frank and Antoinette (DiFranco) Meledandri Jr., of Cheswick; a brother, Frank B. (Patrice) Meledandri, of Mars; two sisters, Tara (Tom) Reighard, of Gibsonia, and Lauren (John) Tosatto, of Gibsonia; and her paternal grandmother, Jennie Meledandri, of New Kensington.
