It was so sad to lose Martha, what a wonderful person she was. It was lovely to see all of the family. I have so many wonderful memories of those days when our families would gather. Thinking of all of you.

Fond memories of aunt Martha , she was a blessing , she wasn’t afraid to speak up when she needed to. She was a giving lively soul who cared she loved people and remained involved into her 90’s. Blest to still be able to live home and drive and got to leave quickly she knew where she was going for she knew her Heavenly Father. She is with her many loved ones who went on ahead of her. The word says we will be known as we were known and people who knew her liked her and her eternal youthfulness that was Martha. She’s not in her 90’s now she’s released from her 90’s body and is enjoying every moment in Heaven.

I am so sorry to hear of Martha's passing, I remember going to hear a couple who were friends of Martha and Don's play Polka music at a small tavern a few times. Martha was always cheerful and happy when I was with her, she was wonderful to my brother when he became a member of the Weber family. She will be greatly missed by many.

Dear Martha was a wonderful person; I met her after my husband died at the grief group. She was so inspiring , listening to her journey through her grief kept me going each week. As the years went by I was able to join her, Joan and Barbara as we met for dinner on Fridays at a surprise location chosen by different ones each week. She was funny, eloquent and always there to listen. She was one of a kind and I miss her already!
