Phillip L. "Phill" MARTH Obituary

MARTH, Phillip L. "Phill"

Phillip L. "Phill" Marth, 72, died after a brief illness on March 16, 2013, at home in St. Cloud, FL, the son of Louis W. and Denise (DuBois) Marth. He received a degree in art and art history from Wesleyan University and his master's degree from the University of Hartford. He had a long career in teaching, for seven years in the Plainfield schools and 23 years until his retirement in Westbrook. He was deeply committed to his students and enjoyed close friendships with colleagues. Phill was an expert gardener and amateur hybridizer of miniature roses, daylilies and canna lilies. He was an active member and past president of the Central Florida Daylily Society and member of the Connecticut Daylily Society. Phill is survived by his wife of 52 years, Trudy Foster Marth, daughter and son-in-law Andrea Marth and Don Duhadaway of Massachusetts, son Timothy Marth of Connecticut, granddaughter Sarah A. Sanchez of Massachusetts, and brothers and sisters-in-law Darryl and Shirley Marth of Connecticut, Dennis Marth of South Carolina, and Russell and Lisa Marth of Connecticut and many neices and nephews.
A celebration of Phill's life will be held at a later time. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Phill's name may be made to your local hospice organization or plant a flower, shrub or tree in his memory. Arrangements by Osceola Memory Gardens of St. Cloud, FL. www.osceolamemgds.com
