  1. Just after I started Alanon, my kids were upset and weren’t talking to me. It was Mother’s Day and I was down and out, feeling sorry for myself. There was a knock at my door. It was Marty. There she stood with a handful of flowers, which she picked from my neighbor’s yard. And she had this beautiful card. She said her mom was mad at her so she thought of me. It turned out to be a great Mother’s Day.

  2. Gary and Bill: I regret not following through with my instinct. Marty was one of my best friends. We laughed and cried so many times. Gary, you are family to AA. I love you and Marty. God Bless You. Vicki Wormington

  3. Many fond memories of Martha…Go East Eagles, ditching Job Daughters, wonderful heart felt hugs and always a smile and laughter. Bill I remember at your fathers funeral you said how proud your father was of her turning her life around. You were such a neat family growing up. I will remember your mothers smile and your fathers onery was (hummm suppose that’s where she got her’s from?) and their laughter.
    I want to send you a poem I hope touches you as it has my family called “Heart Prints”. And by the way you made Marth proud at her service! May God Bless and speed a healing to you and Gary!!!!! Sally “White” Weigel
    Whatever our hands touch…
    We leave fingerprints!
    On walls, on furniture,
    On doorknobs, dishes, books,
    As we touch we leave our identity.

    Oh please where ever I go today,
    Help me leave heart prints!
    Heart prints of compassion
    Of understanding and love.
    Heart prints of kindness
    and genuine concern.

    May my heart touch a lonely neighbor
    Or a runaway daughter,
    Or an anxious mother,
    Or, perhaps, a dear friend!

    I shall go out today
    To leave heart prints,
    And if someone should say
    “I felt your touch,”
    May that one sense be…

    YOUR LOVE
    Touching through
    ME.

  12. It’s sad to lose such a lively lady. Marty was a real character and always made me laugh! Though her many friends will miss her, it’s good that she is at peace, and I hope for peace for her loved ones as well. Teri D.

  13. Marti came into my life at a very difficult time. Her kindness and freindship gave me a new outlook on life. Although I had not seen her in quite a few years memories of her came back from time to time. I hope she knew what an amazing individual she was and what great strength she had.

  14. May God, who has given your loved one sweet joy and peace at last, renew your strength console your heart and surround you with love.With sympathy Your friends at Safeway

  15. I first want to say I am sorry for your loss. I want to share my thoughts of Martha with you. I went to high school with Martha. I always thought the world of her, she had such a sweet and friendly way about her. She never forgot people. I hadn’t seen her for sometime. I’d see her having coffee with the group of people and she always made sure to say hi and to ask how everyone was. I knew of her illness and could only prayer that she would get well someday. She will be missed. I will do my best to be at the service. With my thoughts and prayers for the family. Linda B.

  16. I knew Marty for a number of years before moving to Indiana 10 years ago. Marty was a very vocal person & wasn’t afraid to tell you how she felt. I admired her for that. She was there for me at the lowest time of my life when I lost my 1st born son. May she rest in peace with all the angels in heaven. I LOVE YOU MARTY!!!

  17. In two words… a fighter. I knew Marty since before I can remember. Marty is responsible for giving me a second chance at living and I know she has had the same impact on many lives. Sometimes one wonders if there really are angels sent by God. Marty is the manifestation of a loving God. We have all been blessed by having know her. May she rest in peace.
