Obituary of Martha Milton
Milton, Martha ( Marsha) died August 1, 2022. The First, after a courageous battle with Heart Disease in Buckhead, Atlanta. She is survived by her brothers, Gray, Jimmy, Aunt Berkley Harris and Nieces and Nephews. She is preceded in death by husbands, Joseph Jeptha Norton and William T. Milton. Martha was born in Greensboro,NC and attended Walter Hines Page High School in Greensboro, Converse College and UNC Chapel Hill. She was a beloved English teacher at Page High and The Westminster Schools in Atlanta. She lived in Buckhead, Atlanta for most of her later life. “Marsh” did not have any children of her own but made a life habit out of spoiling her nieces and nephews by sending packages of gifts to them nearly too often. Her idea of a perfect evening was to invite nephews and nieces, order out dinner, snuggle up and watch movies. She was a giver and was always active in doing for others. “Aunt Marsh” loved animals. They were her children. “O’Mally, Annie, Bogey, Hilly,” and most recently “Tony the Tiger,” all were blessed by Martha’s love. Don’t forget the colony of feral cats that thrived in her heated garage “Cat Condo.” Martha earned a degree in Interior Design and had immaculate taste and a keen artistic eye. She loved to travel and procure antiques for her store, “Beneath the Brolly,” in Atlanta. Fine art paintings of animals in the English countryside were her specialty and were dear to her heart. She could tell you where the “best Chinese Food “ was to be had in London. She was modest but worldly. The best way to describe “Marsh” was love. She was lovingly and unselfishly devoted to her family, friends, animals and church. Constantly giving. She was a natural beauty inside and out. Her Congregation writes: Martha was an avid reader and student of the Bible. baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses January 1980. She and Bill moved to Vermont shortly after they were married and worked fulltime conducting free home Bible studies. When they moved back to Atlanta Martha had a Bible study in her home for nearly 20 years. Even when her health failed her she conducted Bible studies with different ones who came to help her. As she traveled the world she worked with Jehovah’s Witnesses in sharing the hope of God’s Kingdom. She set a fine example in helping others.
