Martha lived a wonderful, long life, filled with a large family that loved her. She is in heaven now and probably shopping to her hearts content. May her memory be a blessing to all that loved her.

I love my aunt Martha! Martha is the last aunt or uncle on the Smith side and the Barran side of my family . I was so Blessed to have her at Riverside with me on her last few years of life. She was a Blessing to all!
