Marta was constantly doing wedding and prom “hairdos” for the handfuls of friends her girls brought home. You can bet if you lived within 50 miles, Marta has done your hair or someone’s hair you know.
Marta; a true wife and mother, but to speak her name was synonymous with “Grandmother”. Marta loved her Grandchildren. Even when she didn’t have time, she had time for them…just when it seemed there just couldn’t be room for one more she made sure to show us exactly how there could be. Marta loved to sew and this favorite pastime was clearly evident every time there was a new arrival, even if they were friends of friends ; she was sewing. Marta was the person who always had something helpful to say, she always had a kind word even if in a difficult situation she seemed to always have a different spin, but always trying her best to solve the problem…she really was thought of as EVERYONE’S Mom.
Mom, we will miss you our entire lives.
