My Wonderful Life

Rose Martin

In 1998, Rose Martin died at age 84. Prior to her death she let her friends and family know that she wouldn’t be buried without her 1962 Chevrolet Corvair. Martin had been driving the car around her hometown of Tiverton, Massachusetts for 36 years. The local body shop had to make some adjustments to the vehicle in order to fit a casket inside, but Martin got her wish and was buried in the Corvair, which took up four funeral plots at the cemetery.
