I have known Martha since we were students at Furman. We were in the same class and in Furman Singers together. Martha and I were in the Greenville Chorale together and currently served on the Chorale Board together. I will miss seeing her at the Board meetings as we would sit together a lot of times and exchange pleasantries after the meeting, a lot of times being among the last to leave. You have my sympathy and prayers on the loss of your loved one. May all your memories help you through the days ahead. Jackie Goggins

I had the privilege of working with Martha when she was at 3M Cottage Grove. She was a woman of gracious manners and a backbone of steel. Her integrity and compassion shone through in all that she did. My sympathies to her family and friends as you remember her amazing life.

Dear Jimmy & Family, It was with great sadness that Marlene and I learned of Martha’s passing. She was such a delightful Woman, kind and gentle and amazingly determined. Marlene and I often talk about the time we were in Scotland together and Martha noticed when removing the fluff catcher of the dryer in the house we rented that there was a considerable amount of ‘junk’ that had not been caught. She declined to come to breakfast. When we returned, she had managed to extract in addition to more fluff, 12 tees, 10 ball markers and 20 one-pound coins which had obviously been used as ball markers. We have the pictures to prove it! Martha always seemed so calm and serene and that ‘rubbed off’ on those around her allowing them a moment of peacefulness while in her company. While Marlene and I believe that time will heal the sorrow you now feel, we know it will never dim the memories of a wonderful wife and mother. We hope your faith will be able to support you and your family through this distressing time. Please accept our deepest sympathy. Ian & Marlene

Martha was a woman of grace. She was kind, loving, generous and a wonderful friend. Over the years we have laughed, traveled and enjoyed time together with Martha and Jimmy. We will miss our times together and the enduring friendship we shared.

My condolences to the family. I remember Martha, mostly as the person who made me feel really comfortable on a hike I went on, with a group.

We had so many good times with Martha and Jimmy over many years. Vacationing together in Italy and Spain is a great memory. Martha was a truly wonderful person. We will miss her so much.

Martha and I shared many birthdays together at 3M with us both being born on April 11th. Lots of fun memories over lunches together (she and I were the fast eaters of the group and took some ribbing about it lol), 3M and personal gatherings, work activities, a ski trip to Steamboat Springs, and so much more. Such a smart lady too! She never liked it when smoking was allowed in meetings. I remember the door flying open during one meeting as she pushed her chair into the hallway for the rest of the meeting to get away from the smoke haha! Loved her and was shocked to see her death. RIP sweet friend.
