Martha and Leigh liked to travel and took little trips shopping, sightseeing, and trying their luck at the casinos. Martha liked to knit and crochet, spend time with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She also liked to garden and had a lovely array of blooms in her yard. She loved to go in the mountains and pick huckleberries, and she made excellent jams and preserves. Martha participated and belonged to a lot of community boards and volunteered generously of her time. Martha will be forever remembered for her kindness and her sense of humor, and she will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
