Martha had an undeniable passion for nature and spent countless hours tending to her flowers and plants. She was always attentive to her children and grandchildren providing support and encouragement to schoolwork and other activities. As her health declined recently, she was very appreciative and grateful for the support she received from the family and her health care professionals. She always went out of her way to say thank you!
