She enjoyed a happy 64-year marriage while raising four daughters. She worked for many years as a secretary with Sears Company to help support her family. Martha truly lived life to the fullest through simple pleasures; card games with friends, enjoying time with her family, and making friends wherever she went. The true definition of an optimist, Martha always saw the glass as half-full and knew how important it was to be grateful for each and every day. She was always ready with a big smile even when life threw challenges her way, making each person she met feel special and happy to have known her.She is survived by three daughters, sons-in-law, and many grandchildren, great-grand children, cousins, nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ed, on January 16, 2010.
