She was born November 26, 1942 in Virginia to Argus and Maomi May Mock Anderson.

Martha was a home health caregiver and worked for Sears Accounting for many years.

Her greatest joy in life was her family. There was nothing in the world she wouldn’t do for anyone of them. She loved to give and would give the shirt off her back if you needed it. She was an avid reader of “Romance Novels”. Martha collected watering cans and hummingbirds and loved to feed her squirrels and other critters.

She was the glue to our family and our lives will never be the same without her and she will truly be missed by all.

Memorials may be made in her honor to St. Jude or TAPS.

Cremation has been accorded and private graveside services will be held. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
