Martha spent her childhood days in Flint, MI. While in high school, she would meet the love of her life, Eugene. She would go on to graduate high school in Flint, in 1953. On July 18, 1953, the two high school sweet hearts joined hands in marriage and would go on to have two children together. In her working days, Martha spent many years at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital where she kept medical records. In 1990, she retired from the hospital. Upon retirement, Martha and Eugene moved up north to Mancelona to be closer to their oldest daughter and two grandsons. Martha was known for her sense of humor and had a great love for cats, birds, and flowers. In her free time, she enjoyed taking trips to the casino, watching the Tigers play, and spending time with her family.
