I feel so very blessed that I got to know Martha when I worked at the hospital in Tyndall (2010-2013). She was such a beautiful soul and I loved visiting with her and throughout the time when I lived in Tyndall. I am deeply sad for her passing. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Take care of each other. Peace to all.

My sympathy and prayers to Martha's family. She was a phenomenal extension agent for so many years, and I learned a great deal from her. She was always so willing to help us 4Hers learn. She is still the gold standard I compare other extension agents to, and I have never met anyone that came close to matching her.

We will miss her smile and playing cards together.
