Martha was a wonderful mother-in-law and friend! She never hid what she felt or believed and was very generous with her love. When her son and I were divorced, she maintained our friendship and was a strength to me as I raised our children. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother! We had many fun times together including sailing to the Bahamas, touring Guam and Saipan, and enjoying the wonders of bike week! She was a rock when there was sickness and loss and always lifted me up. She could always be counted on to be there when you needed her and welcomed you with open arms. I will miss her and our friendship. Rest in peace, Martha! I am happy to have another guardian angel in heaven.

Martha loved nothing more in life than her family, all she every wanted was time with them. I am so very grateful to have become part of this family. Martha you will truly be missed by so many, I am certain we will see each other again. I feel truly blessed to have been welcomed into your family as if I was one of your own. Rest easy, I will always be here for the family. Love you Martha

Grandma was a southern fire cracker with the brightest light and humor. She was always quick to love and share exactly what’s on her mind. We are so blessed to have had such a great lady in our lives!

Beautiful Grandmother, you always had a chuckle when we took things too seriously. You loved your great-grandkids and loved just being among them and indulging their whims. So hard to accept that you’re gone, but I know we will see you again. Love and prayers
