She met her Husband, Carlos, on a ‘blind-double date.’ They were married for 54 years, until his passing in 2006. Martha was the devoted spouse and accompanied Carlos across various parts of Texas for his Presbyterian Ministry assignments over the years. She also worked and raised two children, while being heavily involved in her Family’s spiritual growth and upbringing. Some of her early jobs were as a Dental Assistant and a factory worker at Mrs. Tucker’s shortening. But, Martha mostly worked as a Secretary during her career.

Martha enjoyed singing in the church choir, reading, going to the symphony, sewing and her favorite hobby was quilting. She attend the International Quilt Festival (IQF) often. And in recent years, she formed and became member a small Quilting group, which she enjoyed greatly.

She always had a pleasant demeanor, rarely criticized and forgave quickly. A dear, sweet, loving Christian woman, who will be remembered and missed.
