Sympathies to Martha's family. I knew Martha from high school. We were in the marching Bulldogs and symphony band. She played clarinet and I played saxophone and bassoon. She was invited to the big band reunion to celebrate our 1st place down at State in '65 in 2010. We did not have a celebration when we came back so it took us 45 years to have it. Sorry I was not able to get to the funeral home. Rest In Peace Martha. God Bless to all of you.

While I did not know her, I know her son. If she was able to raise someone who was as good and as dedicated a person as he, then her absence will be felt by all.

So sad to learn of Martha's passing. She was always polite and friendly to me. Although I did not see her often, Martha was pleasant to converse with and seemed to always have a smile for everyone. She will be missed.

Our deepest condolences go out to Martha's family and friends. We worshipped with Martha for many years: she will likely be playing clarinet in heaven! She delighted in fellowship and made space for our home group to have 4th of July parties that were great family times. She enjoyed our rocking chair and times we gathered in our upper room. She would wear her winning smile and rock away! Martha always celebrated the people around her. She will be missed. Our prayers go out for her family at this time. May each of you feel consoled by our good God in a very special way!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Martha was a great lady. I have not seen her in years, went to school with her at South Ward Taft in the high school, played in band with her and accomplished musician. She was a very nice lady always enjoyed being around Marty. Our condolences and prayers to the family.

Our deepest condolences on Martha's passing. Martha was an angel to us and to Grace, Bob's Mom, when she would sit, visit and pray with Grace during their time together at church. Martha would bring hand-written bible verses for Grace which she very much appreciated. Martha and her sister Susan visited Grace while she was in hospice care. Thank you Martha for your caring love. May you rest in peace.

Dearest Adam, Susie, Chrissie, and little girls. We loved Martha and her infectious laugh and smile. We will cherish the hand written scripture passages that she gave to us and the sweet needle points. We will continue to pray for her and for all of you. You loved her well, and she felt cherished by all of you. May the peace of the Lord be with you always. Anita and Tim
