Martha Lynn was a "cousin". Her mom married my dad's brother. When I was 6 yrs old, we lived across the street from each other on Flint St. Have not seen her in a while, but sending condolences to her family.

I remember going to Martha’s home and doing ceramics with her and my mother in law, Wanda Jean Hamilton, many times back in the 70 s . She was a smart teacher, and a kind host . She will be missed. Condolences for the family.
