Martha Ruth Sharp Obituary
Martha Ruth Sharp was born October 17, 1928 in Trenton, Missouri and entered into Eternal Life February 7, 2015 at the age of 86. Martha is survived by her 3 sons Mike, Monty and Martin; two daughters-in-law Marilyn and Karen; 5 Grandchildren and their spouses; 10 Great Grandchildren; 2 Great-Great Grandchildren; and many others Mom & Pop "adopted" into the family. Memorial services will be held at Impact Church in Menifee, CA at 11:00 AM on Friday, February 20, 2015.
Martha and her late husband of 64 years, Don, owned and operated 34th Street Cleaners in Bakersfield for 45 years. Martha volunteered in many community groups including 35+ years of service in the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary.
She is remembered for her beauty, elegance, generosity, hard work, home decor, strength, compassion, encouragement, wonderful stubbornness - she never quit until it was done right - and especially her love for the L.A. Dodgers, Big Band music, and others. She was always the perfect hostess.
"Strength and Dignity were her clothing and she smiles at her future."
(Proverbs 31:25).
We smile with her knowing her reward is great for a life well-lived and loved.
