Martha was a very hard worker and always put others before herself. She loved her family and spending time with them. She enjoyed sitting out on her porch during the summer and drinking coffee with friends and family. She was a very sweet and generous person who could bring a smile to anyone’s face. Some of the family’s most cherished memories are of her singing songs to people that mentioned their names or matched their personalities.
There will be no services due to her wishes. Blue Funeral Home in Marion is assisting the family with final arrangements.
