I got to know Marta at LHU Clearfield helping her with technical problems she would sometimes have in her class. She was a sweetheart. Always friendly, kind and we would joke with each other. She is one of those people you will never forget. I will miss her dearly.
Marta touched the lives of so many people, she always had a open ear and good advice, she was a sweet, loving, giving person who will be forever missed by all that knew her. She adopted all entire family as her own, and we are richer for it, prayers and love to karen and all the family, sincerely patty and kevin crater
We have lost a wonderful teacher who lives on in the lives of thousands of students and friends...someone who won many battles and seemed so indestructible ...hard to accept that she is gone...but what a terrific life well led...what a loving, giving, talented person..a perfect role model for her students.
There is an old saying that says you can pick your friends but you cannot pick your family. In Marta's case this did prove to be true. She chose this family to bless with her love, kindness, wisdom and understanding; I think they will always be touched by it and will be a better family because of it. As a part of this extended family I feel very lucky to have known her. She was always available with a loving ear, words of kindness and the ability to help you see things much clearer. As a grandmother I could not have been luckier than to have Karen and Marta to share my grandchildren with. With Marta's passing I can find comfort in knowing that I was privileged to see a glimpse of the great person she was. Anyone who knew her even briefly or from a far as I did knows that her life here had much purpose and she has more than earned the peace and comfort she now has achieved.
Without Marta I would not have become a play therapist. I am so sorry to hear of her untimely death and will remember her always.
