Martha Jane Gage Obituary
Martha Jane Howe Gage, 88, of Atchison, Kan., walked into the arms of Jesus on Thursday, Jan. 17, 2013, at Vintage Park Assisted Living facility surrounded by her loving family.
Formerly of Alamogordo, Martha moved to Atchison in 2006 to be near her two sons and their families.
Mrs. Gage was born Dec. 18, 1924, in Macon, Miss., to Thomas and Marie (Griffith) Howe. She grew up in Macon and moved to Albuquerque, where she graduated from Albuquerque High School and Western School for Private Secretaries in 1942.
She married Fredrick E. Gage Sr. on June 16, 1944, and raised two sons in Alamogordo. Martha was devoted to the community. She was a member of the Alamogordo Art Association, Otero County Fair Association, Calvary Baptist Church in Alamogordo and Trinity Episcopal Church in Atchison.
Martha married Fredrick E. Gage Sr. and their marriage lasted 24 years. She was preceded in death by her mother and father.
Martha started working at the New Mexico Social Services Agency in January 1960 as a typist, and after 26 years she retired in October 1986 as the area food stamp certifier.
She is survived by her sister Barbara Edward, of Canutillo, Texas; two sons, Fredrick E. Gage II and his wife, Patty, of Atchison, and Thomas E. Gage and his wife, Debby, of Ionia, Mo. She had four granddaughters, five great-granddaughters, two great-grandsons and two nephews.
The family wishes to thank Dr. John Eplee and the staff at Vintage Park Assisted Living for the loving care they gave Martha.
The body has been cremated under the direction of Arensberg-Pruett Funeral Home. Two memorial services are being planned, one in Atchison and the other in Alamogordo on later dates.
Should friends desire, memorial contributions may be made to the National Children's Cancer Society in memory of Martha Gage.
