Martha was a member of the First Baptist Church of New Brunswick for over 50 years, and sang in the choir. She was a member of the Bluecoats Petticoats and an Avon lady. Her garden was her pride and joy; it never failed whatever the season. From raking leaves, planting flowers in her rock garden, to shoveling snow, Martha was out and about. She loved the fact that she got to see her granddaughters grow up. She enjoyed playing cards with them and sharing her love of reading with them. Martha was a world traveler that didn’t let anything get in her way.
