She was a member of Mt. Olivet Old Regular Baptist Church in Blackey, Kentucky. Martha never had a harsh word to say about anyone.

She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend. She always enjoyed having her family together and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
