Condolence & Memory Journal

Martha's grace, strength, and devotion to her loved ones are what I remember most. In particular, WELCA was blessed by her service as secretary and especially as chairperson of the Annual Christmas Luncheon at the Christiana Hilton to which she generously gave of her many talents. Martha was a lovely person who will be missed by all who knew her.
