In 1992 after twenty-one years of marriage, David lost his battle to Alzheimer disease. Marta was a devout Christian and always said it was her faith that helped her through tough times.
Martha loved to travel, especially her trip to the Holy Land with her two sisters. They enjoyed reliving their adventure over and over. Marta lived a full life, loved to laugh and was eager to help others.
The family thanks all the staff at Middlechurch Nursing Home for the passionate care they gave mom these past years.
One of mom’s favorite verses: Trust in the Lord with all your Heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
