    I am also a niece of Aunt Martha. She was always soft spoken and loved showing her pictures of her whole family. I know I haven’t seen her in a long time but we all love you Aunt Martha!

    Deeply saddened to lose such a good person. Going over to visit them was a highlight of my youth. She always cared about everyone. The World is less without her in it.

    I am a nephew of Martha’s. My dad was her husband Kenneth’s brother. My memories of Martha go all the way back to when I was a child living in Butternut Michigan. Our families were very close throughout the years.
    You will never find a more caring and sincere person. My mom loved her to pieces. Martha was the ultimate care giver. You could not feel bad when you were around her because she just had a way of making you feel so important and so loved. She meant so much to so many people. She was right by my mom Holding her hand through Mom’s final days, And afterward, when I moved to North Carolina she would call regularly to check on me. She would call on birthdays and when hurricanes threatened North Carolina Just to make sure I was safe. Talking to her was a little piece of home that I had missed so dearly. I am going to miss our conversations. Rest in Peace Aunt Martha. You were such a wonderful person.
