Martha's professional career was as an advertising executive. She worked at Sanger Harris, Bloom Advertising, Young and Rubicam, KIVY Radio, and Levinson & Hill. She spent many years in Michigan for her career but moved home to Texas in 2009 and chose to live in Forney to be near her children and grandchildren. She loved crocheting, baking cookies, classic books, all kinds of music, her pets, and mocha flavored coffee. Martha accepted Jesus Christ as a young girl and was baptized alongside her sister, Barbara, at Calvary Road Baptist in Harlingen. But in 2009 when she joined First Baptist Forney, she wanted to make a public profession of faith as an adult and was baptized by Dr. Jimmy Pritchard. Her favorite hymns were “Just As I Am” and “It Is Well With My Soul”. A memorial service will be at 11:00am, Friday, November 12, 2021 at First Baptist Church in Forney with family receiving friends beginning at 10:00am.
