Marthe Betsy Singer
March 29, 1934 – April 1, 2021
March 29, 1934 – April 01, 2021. Atlanta, Georgia. Beloved mother of Caren Simon, David Singer and Jennifer Thornton, cherished grandmother of Amy Senna (Kerry), Gregory Levitt (Rebecca), Scott Simon, and Jacob Simon (Savanna), Daniel Singer and Jeremy Singer, and Kyle Thornton, adored great-grandmother of Ava and Callan Senna.
Marthe graduated from the University of Connecticut in June of 1954 with a Bachelor of Science in Physical Therapy. She was a pioneer in this field as it was very unusual for a woman to study and receive a degree in Physical Therapy in the 1950’s. In May of 1981 she received a Master of Science from The University of Miami.
Marthe worked for many years at Miami Coral Reef Hospital as the head of the Physical Therapy Department. She also worked for various home health agencies and later owned her own agency. She had many accomplishments in the medical field and enjoyed working with her hundreds of patients throughout the years. Marthe helped babies through geriatrics recover from disease to injury and made many friends along the way. She worked hard her entire career to provide for her family.
There was never a cat, dog, bird or rabbit that Marthe did not want to rescue, adopt or bring home. Her house was always filled with animals and her pets gave her great joy. However, her greatest joy came from being with her family.
Marthe loved synagogue and the sounds of a temple filled with music. She loved attending services and chatting with her friends. She made it a priority to send her children to Jewish camp and provide them with the opportunity to live a Jewish life.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
Graveside services will be held Monday, the 5th of April at 12:30 PM at Arlington Memorial Park with Rabbi Judith Beiner officiating. Information pertaining to Shiva will be announced at the service.

We met Marthe upon moving to village park and forged a true friendship . Marthe was wonderful to us and helped us adjust to this new environment . Marthe talked continuously of her children and grandchildren and we felt we knew the family without meeting them. We will miss Marthe but know she is at peace . Naomi and Lew Medoff

Jennifer and family - I am so sorry for your loss. I am so glad that I got to know your mom (even though brief) a few years ago. She was truly a special lady and indeed a pioneer in the PT field. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. Sending lots of love your way.

We would often see Marthe at Village Park when we would visit my father Alan who passed. He always enjoyed talking with her and she looked out for him. We would enjoy her company esp. in the Jewish groups.
Richard helped provide her with new red glasses that she loved to wear.
We are so sorry for your loss.

Our friendship started a little rocky, but we did manage to straighten it out. We had a lot of things in common, it's why we became good friends and did support each other when we were feeling down, a specially trough the covid times.
I will really miss You !
Thank you for being a good friend to me.
