My sincerest condolences to the family. I have so, so many fond memories of Marty over the years. She loved her family so much. Boomer Sooner forever, Marty! Laura Trumble-Bodnar, July 22, 2021 So sorry to see this about Marty, such a fun lady, loved it every time we got together. Sharyn Rusher passed on July 21. They will have a great time together. Can you imagine Rex, Marty, John and Sharyn. Nancy Ferguson, July 21, 2021 I have such lovely memories of Marty and how much she loved her family! The thing was that if you were friends of hers you were family too. She was always opening her home to others and picking up strays like mom and I on the way. Her loving and happy nature made everyone feel at home and special. So grateful to have had her and sweet LeeAnn in our lives. Sending prayers and love. Gary and Lacey Wells, July 21, 2021 We were both only children and adopted each other as sisters years ago. She was my best friend and I will miss her dearly. The memories I have of all the things we did together would fill a book. She's now with Rex and Granny Pearl and I'm sure Boomer Sooner played when she arrived in Heaven.
Glenda Medellin, July 21, 2021 So sad to hear about the passing of Martha, but I'm sure she's no longer missing Rex! That is always a reassuring thought when you are saddened at their passing. I am sure you have lots of pictures to remember them by, so cherish them and all your memories. Love to all.
