    I will always remember best by her smile. She was like a sister in high school. As cousins we grew up together, going to our Papas house and getting into “firecracker” mischief. We always had fun together. It didnt matter where we were or what we were doing. We could go years apart and meet up and leave laughing. Martha I will miss you greatly!!!!

  • Aunt Jan and Uncle Paul says:

    Martha was a special niece that has left many memories in my mind. She spent the night with my girls and they stayed with her. We loved her very much

  • Chris and Teresa Spaulding says:

    You always could find Martha smiling and laughing. We had a lot of fun when we were growing up, spending the night with each other, going to our Papa and Aunt Eunice’s house and scouring the hills! We didn’t see much of each other as we got older, but we loved to remember the fond memories we had together when we did get together. She was a special lady and I have no doubt she will be missed very much! Love and prayers for all the family.

    I have not seen my cousin for many years as we have grown up and live in different states, my fondest memory of her is when she visited my parents when they lived in Chicago and she went to church with me on a Sunday morning. She always had a smile on her face and I will always have fond memories of my cousin taken way to young.
