Martha enjoyed entertaining in her home, preparing wonderful meals for family and friends.

Martha left a legacy of this love to all her family. In addition to spending time with her family, she enjoyed traveling with her husband and children throughout the world, including to China, Antarctica and rafting down the Grand Canyon.
