The family would like to thank Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton for their wonderful help and care. A true southern girl; pretty, soft spoken, friendly, great hostess and a great cook.
She will be buried at Shadyside Cemetery in Auburn, OH. Martha had many friends in both Florida and Ohio, but due to the pandemic, there will not be a service. There will be a family only gathering at the grave site to pay their final respects.
