After graduation she and Stuart embarked on a job search tour throughout those same childhood areas, finally landing in Dallas, Texas that Fall.

Sending our sincere condolences to Marty’s family or Ms. Pappan as we called her. Ms. Pappan was one of our favorite teachers at Dallas Academy who went over and above to help our son Brad while in her class. She shared her artistic talents with the students providing a refuge for the kids who struggle academically but through art they could shine in her classroom. Ms. Pappan will be missed but she will always have a place in our hearts because you never forget your favorite teachers. The McGaw Family (Brad class of 2015)

In high school, at Dallas Academy, she was my favorite art teacher I ever had. She helped me so much my junior year. One of my favorite memories with her was during finals before the winter break, she let us do whatever we wanted during class and to listen to music if we wanted. Another memory was, when I was going through a breakup, she was there for me and helped so much by sharing good advice.

Marty, my sisters and my niece traveled to New York City years ago. Although Marty wasn’t part of our family she quickly became one of us. It was so wonderful having her along. Her presence made the trip so special.

Every time I visited my sister and son, I would make it a point to spend time with Marty. Whether it was a walk on the Katy Trail, a glass of wine or dinner out-our visits rekindled that special friendship we started years earlier.

The one thing that stands out to me the most about Marty was her quiet strength. I struggled with some family problems and Marty was always there to help me reason things out. She never lectured, forced her opinions on me, she just listened which is exactly what I needed. Wouldn’t the world be a better place if we had more Marty’s in the world?

I am so grateful that this beautiful, caring, strong woman came into my life. I will carry her with me always.

Love,

Our family is so saddened by the passing of Marty. She made a real difference in Mack’s life and he still treasures the small Christmas tree she gifted to him. It will be especially meaningful to display it this year. Our love and prayers to Stuart and family as well as Marty’s Dallas Academy family.

My sincere condolences to Martha’s family! I am truly sorry that you have to go through this. Yawveh God did not create us to do die so it really hurt when we lose someone.

Please find comfort in knowing that God cares for you and feels your pain. He promises to give an abundance of peace of those seeking in prayer. (1 Peter 5:7; Philippians 4:6,7)
