Martha was devoted to her faith and her loving Lord as well as to her family. She had a beautiful soul and a kind, loving heart toward all people. She especially enjoyed her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. One could often hear her singing or praying throughout the day. She enjoyed her gardens and picking blueberries and raspberries. She loved her porch swing, especially with a child in her lap.
One of Martha’s hobbies was baking with her children and grandchildren. She loved attending church services and worshiping Jesus. Martha touched many lives by her sweet, loving spirit and was truly a gift from God. She will be dearly missed by many.
