Marty was like a second mother to me when I was in high school. She had a sweet spirit and an infectious smile, and I always felt loved and welcome in her home. Her hospitality and genuine love for others made a tremendous impact on my life! She will be missed!

Marty was such a special lady with a big heart and beautiful smile. No matter the years that had passed us by, when I would see her, she always remembered me, asked about my family, and made me feel special! She was a true blessing and example to others! She will be missed!

Mrs Marty... just the mention of her name has always made me smile. Her sweet spirit, to the love she poured over my daughter Laura as a child, will always stay with me. Our hearts and prayers will continue for this family.

I am so sad that Marty is no longer with us, but I know that she is in heaven with her true love. Marty was so kind and nice to every person she met. I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone. She was like a sister not a sister-in-law. I am going to miss her so much' Our prayers go out to all her loved ones. Carey and Trudy
